  • This is the title track of Deftones eighth studio album. Singer Chino Moreno told UK's Kerrang! magazine about the record's name: "If you look at the title and the artwork, it's about a juxtaposition that, for me, is very beautiful," he said. "I think Deftones have always flirted with dynamic and that yin-and-yang of things that are provocative and things that are beautiful. Where our last two album titles were a lot more optimistic, I think this title is intentionally different. This record is very different."
