AFI vs. Deftones – Cage Match

Republic / Warner Bros.

AFI won their second straight Cage Match with a victory over Pearl Jam. But can they keep up their winning ways against another strong opponent?

Deftones enter the Cage Match with their current single ‘Swerve City,’ which has found its way in the upper reaches of the active rock airplay chart. The tune is the latest hit off Deftones critically acclaimed 2012 album ‘Koi No Yokan.’ You can catch Deftones on tour this fall with Avenged Sevenfold and Ghost B.C. See the dates here.

Will AFI and their track ‘I Hope You Suffer’ continue to emerge victorious? Or will Deftones swerve their way to a win? Listen to both tracks and vote for your favorite in the poll below:
