Deftones are gearing up to kick off their latest tour, with the first date coinciding with the Carolina Rebellion rock music festival, in Charlotte, NC.
The alternative rock band’s headlining tour will launch on May 8, during Day 3 of Carolina Rebellion, at Charlotte Motor Speedway. From there, Deftones will hit several U.S. venues, in addition to other festivals, including Rock on the Range.
While the first leg of the tour will wrap up mid-June after several dates in Europe, the California-based band recently added a second leg to the tour. That will find them back in the States throughout the month of August.
Deftones are touring in support of their new album Gore, which dropped earlier this month via Warner Bros. Records. Prior to the album’s release, the band gave fans a quick fix by premiering the track “Doomed User,” on SiriusXM’s Octane channel.
“It’s got a rockin’ rhythm and a high tech sound that will make you shake your body down to the ground,” frontman Chino Moreno says. The album’s current single “Prayers / Triangles” is climbing the Rock radio charts.
Earlier this year, Deftones made the rounds at SXSW in Austin, headlining both Spin‘s 14th Annual Day Party at Stubb’s and an impromptu show at SXSW’s Outdoor Stage at Lady Bird Lake. As for their summer tour, Deftones have added Refused to the bill, for select dates on the second leg.
