Deftones Announce US Headlining Tour

Hard rockers Deftones are mapping out more US headlining tour dates prior to their joint outing with Mastodon and Alice in Chains this fall on the BLACKDIAMONDSKYE tour.

Deftones released Diamond Eyes earlier this year to widespread acclaim, their first album of music with new bassist Sergio Vega, formerly with Quicksand. The band’s original bassist, Chi Cheng, was so seriously injured in an automobile accident that he remains in a semi-comatose state. At the time of the accident, Deftones had nearly finished a record with Cheng. Rather than finish that album with Vega, the band chose to shelve the nearly completed record and start again.

Four years after what sadly may be the last album they began and finished with Cheng, Saturday Night Wrist, Diamond Eyes was completed and the band have been out in force touring it in Europe and the US.

The band’s newly announced dates will begin in on the West Coast in California in August and will take the band across the Midwest through the Southeast. The tour kicks off in Ventura, CA on August 6 and wraps up in Cleveland on September 14.
