Deftones’ Chino Moreno Hunted Down In ‘Swerve City’ Video

Deftones have released a video to accompany the latest single, “Swerve City,” from their acclaimed Koi No Yokan album.

As with the previously released lyric video, the Gus Black-directed clip has kept the western theme. A woman is seen riding through the desert on horseback, as the sun goes down. A car races by on a nearby highway with frontman Chino Moreno at the wheel. Beating the singer to a desert house, she greets him with an unexpected gift.


Speaking to KROQ/ Los Angeles about Koi No Yokan, Moreno explained that after Chi Cheng’s 2008 accident left him in a coma that ultimately led to his death in April, the band decided to scrap Eros, the album in progress.

“We started with a whole new record,” said Moreno. “And at that point, we never really looked backwards, we only started looking forward.”

Moreno acknowledged that his fans are curious to hear Eros, but that it’s something special for them, especially since it’s the “last thing that Chi played on to this point.”
