Deftones Unveil New White Pony 20th Anniversary Merch Line
With a reissue on the way and an album listening party planned for later today (June 22), Deftones are doing plenty to celebrate the 20th anniversary of White Pony. And now fans will even be able to wear their love for the Sacramento gang’s third album with a new ‘White Pony 20th Anniversary Capsule’ merch drop.
Featuring a couple of T‑shirts, a baseball tee, a longsleeve, a hoodie, jacket, shorts and even a White Pony flag, Deftones’ new anniversary collection is clearly a must-have for fans of Chino Moreno and co.‘s iconic LP, with the ‘Shut up and take my money’ GIF instantly coming to mind when scanning the collection…

As well as releasing a whole load of White Pony merch, Chino confirmed last week that an upcoming reissue of the record will also come with a full remix album.
“We’re going to do a sort of flipside entitled Black Stallion,” he said. “A lot of people are on it – some that inspired the writing on the original record itself. We had that idea pretty much 20 years ago, even before we started writing White Pony. It’s something we always joked about, and now it’s actually come to life.”
The reissue will also feature the ‘definitive’ White Pony tracklist, amending the fact that, when the LP appeared on streaming services, single Back To School (Mini Maggit) was track one, when in fact White Pony was originally supposed to begin with the song Feiticeira.
“I don’t think it’s a terrible idea to correct the order on streaming,” pondered Chino. “But at this point in time it kinda is what it is. I still think it’s a great record, but when we do the reissue we’re definitely going with the original version, mainly because that’s what it was intended to be.”
