Multi-platinum alternative rockers Deftones have announced plans for a summer tour supporting System of a Down. The two-week summer jaunt kicks off on August 2nd in Philadelphia, PA and wraps August 15th in Chicago, IL.
From their 1994 debut ‘Adrenaline’ to their platinum-certified, Billboard chart-topping, Grammy-winning breakthrough album ‘White Pony,’Deftones have continually crossed-over genres, defied categorization and delivered compelling live performances around the world.

Deftones are currently in Los Angeles, CA, recording their seventh studio full-length with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters, Rush) who also produced Diamond Eyes. The album will be released via Reprise Records later this year.
