Californian six-piece Deftones are making their return to Australia next May. While it was speculated that they might be appearing as part of the epic 2013 Soundwave festival, it wasn’t to be, but fans shouldn’t be disappointed as good news has arrived!

Deftones have always been one step ahead of their alternative metal peers. They have spent their career battling on the front-line, always pushing ahead stylistically and crafting crushingly effective metal tracks whilst breaking new ground.

2010’s Diamond Eyes was a roaring return for the band but it’s the new album Koi No Yokan (check  their track ‘Tempest’ off the release featured in our mixtape) that sees them forge into unchartered territory.

Full of punk rock aggression and rock ‘n’ roll swagger letlive. have exploded on to the world stage as one of the most exciting and important bands of 2012.
