Diamond Eyes is the sixth studio album released by the American rock band Deftones. The album will be released through Warner Bros. Records/Reprise Records on May 18, 2010. Deftones finished recording another studio album in 2008, tentatively titled Eros, but felt it did not represent the band artistically at the time. The release of Eros was put on hold in favor of this album in June 2009. Deftones bassist Chi Cheng was in a coma during the recording of the album, and was replaced by Sergio Vega.
