Deftones Singer Chino Moreno and Former Isis Members Form New Band Palms
“Clifford, Jeff and I started Palms a little over a year ago out of a desire to continue making music together after Isis ended,” explains Harris. “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 lineup.”
Moreno is already in Deftones and ††† (pronounced “Crosses”), but found room in his busy schedule to join Palms. “Being a huge Isis fan I’ve always dug the moods these dudes convey with their sound,” says Moreno. “I am excited to combine my sense of creativity with theirs, and to have fun doing so.”
Palms’ debut album was produced by the band and mixed by Harris. It will be released later in 2012 on Ipecac Records, with an exact date to be announced soon.
