Burbank, CA – DEFTONES have just completed a triumphant European tour in support of their sixth full-length studio album, DIAMOND EYES, which crash-landed its way into the Billboard Top 10 upon its May 4th release.

Following a string of sold out U.S. dates, and a high-energy performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, DEFTONES made an immediate impact overseas to manic audience reaction and headline-grabbing media response. Back home in the States, the press has also responded in kind:

“Blissed-out and surreal…brutal beauty abounds.” – SPIN Magazine

“Diamond Eyes belongs in the pantheon of amazing albums born from tragedy. Unlike their alleged ‘peers’ (do they really have any?), Deftones learned years ago that a whisper can be more terrifying than a scream and power isn’t always about BPMs and downstrokes per minute.

And Godspeed, Mr. Cheng: Your brothers made great record in your honor.”  – Alternative Press

While their American fans impatiently await this fall’s highly anticipated BLACKDIAMONDSKYE (also featuring Alice In Chains and Mastodon), DEFTONES are pleased to announce their own headline tour slated to begin this August on the West Coast, which will work its way across the Midwest.
