When Deftones bassist Chi Cheng was involved in a car serious car accident in 2008 the band were working on a album that was to be called Eros. In the end, when it became clear he would never fully recover they scrapped the album entirely, but yesterday, a year to day since Cheng died aged 42, the band released a previously unheard track from it titled 'Smile'.

The recorded tribute came attached to a written one via Chino Moreno Twitter page:

Deftones are currently working on their eight studio album, the follow up to 2012's Koi No Yokan.
