The band’s landmark 2000 album turned 20 years old this past Saturday (June 20th), and we’ve already listed 20 reasons why we still love the stellar LP, in addition to examining the album’s enduring impact.
Today (June 22nd), fans can join the band at 9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT for a global listening party via Deftones’ YouTube channel (posted below), with band members taking part in an online chat as the LP plays.
In addition to soaking in songs like “Change (In the House of Flies)”, “Digital Bath”, and “Passenger” again, fans can also rep White Pony with some new apparel issued in conjunction with the album’s 20th anniversary. A new capsule on Deftones’ merch site offers t-shirts, a hoodie, a satin jacket, a baseball cap, and more.
As previously reported, Deftones recently revealed that they plan to reissue White Pony later this year with a bonus alternate LP called Black Stallion. The extra disc will fulfill the band’s longtime dream of having each song on the album remixed, with DJ Shadow among the artists offering new takes on the White Pony tracks.
Deftones also recently wrapped up work on their upcoming ninth album, with a September release being hinted at by drummer Abe Cunningham.
Tune in below at 9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT for Deftones’ White Pony 20th anniversary listening party. To participate in the chat session, watch directly on YouTube.
