Ahead of the release of their new album, Ohms, Deftones have launched their Adopt-A-Dot for charity campaign.
Adopt-A-Dot allows fans to make a charitable donation to “adopt” one or multiple dots from the thousands featured on the Ohms album cover, created by Frank Maddocks. All proceeds will benefit the UC Davis Children’s Hospital and Live Nation’s Crew Nation, a global relief fund to help live music crews impacted by COVID-19. Donations can be made at Deftones.com/Adopt. Those who donate can upload their photo to the site to be part of the album cover.
Speaking about the album cover, Maddocks said “Ohms album art is an iconic rendering of a suspended, chance moment in time. As with Deftones’ music and lyrics, the definitive meaning of the imagery invites and relies on interpretation from the viewer. From a dreamy gaze above, to sadness, hope, despair, optimism and a longing for connection, the emotion conveyed are endless and infinitely evolving.
Deftones’ new album, Ohms, comes out September 25th. Recently, the band shared the LP’s second single, “Genesis.”
