Following the departure of longtime bass player Sergio Vega last month, Deftones have recruited a new member to assume touring duties: former Marilyn Manson bassist Fred Sablan.

In addition to serving with Manson between 2010 and 2014, Sablan has also played with Chelsea Wolfe and Peter Hook and the Light, and formed punk-rock supergroup Heavens Blade alongside Youth Code's Sara Taylor, Rob Zombie's Piggy D and Suicide Silence's Alex Lopez in 2018.
