It looks like Deftones will once again hit the road in March for a little trek through the states in support of their amazing new record, Koi No Yokan. No openers have been revealed thus far but the rumors of support from Scars on Broadway again have been dismissed, thankfully. You can view how the tour will run below as well as jam to my favorite track from the new record, “Goon Squad”
Would you look at that! Tell me that artwork is not awesome! Clutch’s new studio effort Earth Rocker is set to see the light of day sometime in March on the band’s own Weathermaker Music. Also taking place in March is the band’s US tour with Orange Goblin, Lionize and Kyng! You can check out the official dates for that below. Are you excited yet?
Melvins sister band, Big Business, have announced an extensive touring schedule in the US this summer/fall.
