Friday evening, both System of a Down and Deftones teased that an upcoming tour announcement was coming on Monday, April 23rd. The teasers featured photos of Chino of Deftones and Shavo of SOAD holding up laminated tour VIP passes for each other’s band. Needless to say, this could have only pointed to one thing: A SOAD/Deftones tour. It’s like 1999 all over again, but in the best way imaginable!
Unfortunately, the run of dates seems to be pretty limited. Hopefully they’ll announce more dates, because this is a show I’d kill to see! I cut my teeth on SOAD and Deftones have remained relevant and acclaimed long after the “nu/alt metal” trend expired.
