You can’t throw a delay pedal without hitting a fan of Deftones in the Heavy Blog camp. The same can be said for Incubus, those starry eyed kids with the great hair that everyone saw on MTV. So you can imagine that some heads started spinning when the news broke that these two will be combining their talents to co-headline a North American tour this summer. Top the line up off with the incredible Death From Above 1979 and The Bots and look at that, you’ve found the antidote for the harsh winter that has kept you indoors. Head on over the jump to get dates and more of me wishing I was Stateside.
While the tour doesn’t hit every part of the US of A (let’s face it, there are always going to be some states left behind on a tour like this), there are some cool spots being hit by this throw back. Indoor and outdoor venues will be left reeling by the combined nostalgia and brilliance of these two bands. As far as the support acts go, Death From Above are simply phenomenal live while The Bots are an unknown commodity for me; rest assured I will be checking them out very soon.
