Deftones have announced a headline tour of the UK in February 2013. The tour sees the band play Nottingham, Manchester, Birmingham and London. Since their inception, Grammy-winning alternative band Deftones have quietly been pursuing two paths, delivering songs defined by churning, double-fisted aggression while also quietly testing the boundaries of music by incorporating elements of psychedelia and shoegaze.
Their platinum-certified, Billboard chart-topping 2000 album White Pony earned rave reviews for blending the moodiness of bands like The Cure and Slowdive, but the group has only gotten more experimental since then, evincing a clear restlessness with convention and repetition.
Picking up where 2010's lauded Diamond Eyes left off, the group's seventh album, 'Koi No Yokan' is their boldest yet. Both ferociously melodic and dizzyingly expansive, the album moves from pensive to pulverizing – often in the space of a single song.
With their forward-thinking, genre-agnostic rock, Deftones ride strange waves of inspiration to always-engrossing, always-surprising ends. The songs are as eerie and ghostly and glimmering as the Northern Lights – both strange and strangely beautiful, and firmly positioned at the intersection of blunt force and haunting elegance. 'Koi No Yokan is Deftones' at their finest.
Deftones is an alternative metal/rock band from California, US. The band has been around since 1989 and includes members Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Chi Cheng, Frank Delgado and Abe Cunningham.
In their 22 years they have released six successful studio albums, toured all over the world and gathered a massive loyal fan base. They have performed at Ozzy Osbourne's Ozzfest, The Warped Tour in the US, New Zealand and Australia, Pinkpop Festival and Roskilde Festival.
