Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has released a new solo song titled “Brief Exchange.” The track is the second inspired by DC Comics’ graphic novel Dark Nights: Metal. It follows last month’s “Red Death,” the first-ever solo track from Mastodon drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor.
Both tunes are slated to appear on a soundtrack featuring songs inspired by Dark Nights: Metal, a blockbuster comic book event that involved Batman discovering a dark multiverse existing beneath the core DC multiverse. The set is a collaboration between DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Records.
The creation of the soundtrack is being guided by producer Mike Elizondo and film composer Tyler Bates, who is also the guitarist for Marilyn Manson.
A deluxe edition of the Dark Nights: Metal graphic novel is set to arrive in comic book shops on Tuesday (June 12th).
Moreno recently confirmed that Deftones are working on music for their ninth studio album, which will follow up 2016’s Gore LP
