The new DEFTONES video for 'Romantic Dreams,' a song from last year's excellent 'Koi No Yokan' album, was directed by skater and filmmaker Brett Novak.
He has also directed music videos for Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Lil Wayne and Paramore.

The star of 'Romantic Dreams' is skater Jason Park.

On a cool night in LA, Park hits all the hot spots on some sort of stealth mission.

We do not see DEFTONES in the clip, but you can imagine them thrashing around on some rooftop, Chino Moreno howling about neverending nights and marching into the fumes.

About the new video, Moreno said this to writer Hardeep Phull:

"When we started this record cycle, we decided that we didn’t want to make any videos whatsoever. They’re not much fun to make and they usually turn out pretty corny.

But this was an idea that we were interested in because we’re all very keen skateboarders and we like the idea of marrying one of our songs to someone as talented as Jason Park

DEFTONES will be joining AVENGED SEVENFOLD on the Hail to the King Tour next month.
