Yesterday, it was revealed that Sacramento alt-metallers Deftones were hiding the title of their new album in plain sight. Then, things got even weirder: the band released a series of coordinates for a location in California via social media, and when fans traveled to them, they discovered what appears to be a billboard for their new album.

Yesterday, the band posted the following video to Twitter and their Instagram:

The longitude and latitude that Deftones posted led fans to a parking lot in Los Angeles, in which a billboard had been put up with the caption, “This is our time, we devour the days ahead 9-25-20.” The date included is the same one that Deftones have added to their web address recently.

All of which is to say that Deftones are going especially hard — and weird — promoting this new album, which is rumored to be titled Ohms. One can only hope the record is up to the marketing campaign surrounding it.

Meanwhile, the band are already planning their 2021, with their tour alongside Gojira and Poppy having been rescheduled. Make sure to catch Deftones at one of the dates below:
