>> Team Sleep 2006 Album

According to Team Sleep have already written 15 songs worth of material for their 2nd album. The band will start rehearsing and recording the tracks this fall while Moreno's on the road with Deftones; when he returns to Sacramento, California, he'll lay down vocals for the songs. Former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha will contribute, Chino said.
"Koolaid," which didn't make the cut for Team Sleep, will be released overseas as the B-side to "Ever (Foreign Flag)." On the track, Chino trades vocals with Fantômas/ Faith No More legend Mike Patton. "It just really didn't fit in context with the album itself," Moreno said. "It's kind of a novelty-type song it's also kind of funny and spooky, too."

>> Team Sleep Tracklist :: 31.03.2005

The long-in-the-works self-titled debut album from Team Sleep will be released May 10 via Maverick. The group, led by Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and also featuring childhood friend Todd Wilkenson on guitar, DJ Crook, bassist Rick Verrett and drummer Zach Hill, has been working on the material since 2001.
Here is the track list for "Team Sleep":

"Your Skull Is Red"
"Princeton Review" (featuring Rob Crow)
"Blvd. Nights"
"Our Ride to the Rectory" (featuring Rob Crow)
"Tomb of Liegia" (featuring Mary Timony)
"Staring at the Queen"
"Ever Since WW1" (featuring Rob Crow)
"King Diamond" (featuring Mary Timony)
"Live From the Stage"
"Paris Arm"
"11/11" (featuring Rob Crow)

Accurately described in the past by Moreno as "moody" and "beat driven," the 15-track album includes one song inspired by an Edgar Allen Poe poem ("Tomb of Liegia") and the formerly instrumental "King Diamond," both of which featur e vocals by former Helium frontwoman Mary Timony. On tracks like the languid, pensive "Ever" and "Princeton Review," the album reveals a softer side of Moreno that may surprise fans of the Deftones' more aggressive rock attack. Pinback principal Rob Crow adds to the homespun indie rock vibe by contributing vocals to four songs, including "11/11" and "Our Ride to the Rectory." Among the tracks that won't be found on "Team Sleep" are "Mercedes," which was leaked online several years ago, "The Passportal" (which marked Team Sleep's official debut when it was released on the 2003 soundtrack for "The Matrix: Reloaded") and various alternate versions that featured everyone from Mike Patton to the rest of the Deftones. A North American tour is in the works for May, but dates are not yet confirmed. Nor is a timetable for the next Deftones album, which was produced by Bob Ezrin (Kiss, Pink Floyd)."Team Sleep" will arrive in stores through Maverick on May 10th.  You can pre-order the album HERE
