Saturday Night Wrist Deftones lineup Reading Festival (2006–2007)

Deftones performing live in Glasgow, June 2006.
Deftones released their fifth album Saturday Night Wrist on October 31, 2006. It debuted at number ten in the US Billboard chart with sales of just over 76,000,a significant decrease on the first week sales of their two previous releases.
Rather than work with longtime producer Terry Date, Deftones decided to record with Bob Ezrin. Cunningham says that while the group enjoyed working with Date, “At this point, we just needed to change things up […] And this is definitely a different style. Working with him [Ezrin] is just putting us fucking upside down. He’s cracking the whip.”After recording all the instrumentals for the record, Chino Moreno decided to record his vocals separately. Chino thus finished recording the album with former Far guitarist Shaun Lopez as producer. According to interviews with members of Deftones, the tensions involved with the recording of Saturday Night Wrist nearly led to the demise of the band. Collaborations on the record include Annie Hardy from Giant Drag on the song “Pink Cellphone” and Serj Tankian from System of a Down on the track “Mein”.
The album’s first single was called “Hole in the Earth,” hitting the radio on October 16, 2006. “Hole in the Earth” was also featured as a downloadable song for the PS3 & Xbox 360 versions of Guitar Hero 3. “Mein” was the album’s second single, which aired in Spring of 2007.
As of March 2007, Saturday Night Wrist has sold over 250,000 copies (US).

Deftones spent the majority of 2006 and 2007 touring around the world in support of the album. The band played shows in places including North America, Canada, Europe, South America, Japan and Australia. The band also performed in such tours as Taste of Chaos, Family Values Tour and the Soundwave Festival in Australia.
