WATCH: Deftones’ Cinematically Stunning Video For ‘Ceremony’

A true masterpiece.

Deftones have shared an incredible visual for their track 'Ceremony'. 

The clip is directed by Leigh Whannell, writer and director of 2018's Upgrade and the 2020's The Invisible Man, and that cinematic eye lends itself brilliantly to the band's sultry and savage sound. 

A maze of disturbing and decadent rooms and a few easter eggs and familiar faces, it's a tribute to how far the band will go to bring their sound to life in the most unique and unexpected ways. 

Vocalist Chino Moreno had this to say about the clip:

“When Leigh tweeted that he was a fan, we immediately thought it would be cool to collaborate with him given the chance. We’re fans of his as well, so it made sense that we should reach out. One moment we’re DM’ing each other on Twitter, and the next we’re on set making Ceremony. This has always been the best way for us to collaborate: organically, collaboratively and in this case, expeditiously. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we had making it.”

And Leigh had this to add:

“I’ve been a huge Deftones fan for over twenty years and have always admired the devotion they have dedicated to every aspect of their art - from music videos to album covers to their cryptic and intriguing lyrics. To get a chance to be a part of that art was a dream come true.

So sit back, relax and enjoy:

The track is taken from the band's 2020 album 'Ohms'.

Here's the title track:

We chatted to Frank Delgado all about the album and everything in between back in December. Here that is:
