Deftones announce new tour, new album

By Alan Ho

Alternative rock stalwarts Deftones have announced a brief tour with System of a Down yesterday (April 23) and added that they are currently in the studio recording their seventh full-length studio album.  The two week jaunt will kick off August 2nd in Philadelphia and wrap up August 15th at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL. 

The group’s career trajectory has been one of defying genres and redefining others.  The Sacramento band’s last release, the 2010’s Diamond Eyes was named iTunes’ “Rock Album of the Year” and garnering more accolades from places like Kerrang!, Myspace and AOL Noisecreep.

The Deftones are currently in LA producing and crafting their seventh studio album, yet to be titled 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.
