Gore is the eighth studio album by American alternative metal band Deftones, released on April 8, 2016 by Reprise Records. Its release was met with critical acclaim, debuting at No. 1 on New Zealand and Australia's top album charts and No. 2 on the US Billboard 200; it is the band's fifth album to debut within the latter chart's top 10 and is their highest-charting since their self-titled 2003 album. The album was noted for its creative tension between frontman Chino Moreno and lead guitarist Stephen Carpenter, which was described by Rolling Stone as Moreno "playing Morrissey to the guitarist's Meshuggah."
