Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and former Isis members Aaron Harris, Clifford Meyer and Jeff Caxide have formed a new band called Palms and recently completed work on their debut album together, it has been announced.

Harris explains: “Clifford, Jeff and I started Palms a little over a year ago out of a desire to continue making music together after Isis ended [in 2010]. Chino joined shortly after and our sound took shape from there. We’ve worked really hard on this first release and are excited for people to hear it. It’s nice to be back behind the drum kit, and with this line-up”.

Moreno added: “Being a huge Isis fan I’ve always dug the moods these dudes convey with their sound. I am excited to combine my sense of creativity with theirs, and to have fun doing so”.

The album is slated for release later this year via Ipecac.
