Following the success from the Deftones’ third album, The White Pony, singer Chino Moreno announced his intentions to tackle a fresh task and devote some time faraway from his band. This task ended up getting Team Rest, a band comprised of vocalist Moreno, turntablist DJ Crook, and guitarist Todd Wilkinson. Wilkinson was a child years friend of Moreno’s, and actually had never performed on an recording before. The group attempted to mix the moody heaviness of Moreno’s additional group using the heady beats of Substantial Attack. They came into the studio room toward the tail-end of 2001, dealing with maker Terry Date on the debut. Guest music artists such as for example ex-Hole bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur, Helium vocalist Mary Timony, Mr. Bungle/Trust FORGET ABOUT frontman Mike Patton, and many Deftones users also added to the recording. The band required the music to the street during the documenting, wanting to flesh out their audio and gain some street experience with one another. Their self-titled debut finally found its way to springtime 2005. In 2014, after a protracted hiatus, Moreno announced that Group Sleep experienced reunited to focus on a follow-up with their debut. Documented at Applehead Documenting studio room in Woodstock, NY, Group Sleep’s as-yet-untitled sophomore recording was tentatively slated for launch in 2015.
