System of a Down and Deftones are teasing what looks to be a Monday (April 23) announcement of a joint North American tour. Hot on the heels of the news that they both will be playing Heavy MTL and Heavy T.O. festivals up in Canada this summer, it looks like more dates together are in the works, as the bands used their social media and online properties to drop obvious hints.
Eight new bands have been added to the lineups for the Canadian Heavy MTL and Heavy T.O. festivals in August. Deftones, Dethklok, Voivod, Sword, Trivium, Emmure, Diemonds and Dance Laury Dance will perform at the shows in Toronto and Montreal.
Deftones recently wrapped up pre-production on their seventh studio album and have set a date of July 9 to enter the studio for the new recording. The disc will be the follow-up to their 2010 release ‘Diamond Eyes.’
Deftones frontman Chino Moreno is once again off the market. (Sorry, girls!) Moreno, 38, wed his longtime girlfriend Risa Mora in a ceremony in the thoroughly romantic locale of Hawaii last week. The couple swapped vows on Wednesday, March 7.
Deftones bassist Chi Cheng has spent nearly three and a half years in an unconscious or semi-conscious state after a tragic car accident. Recent reports say that Cheng is responsive to commands and that he may be emerging from his coma.
Deftones' singer Chino Moreno remains hard at work on songs other than those of his main band. The singer formed the side project ††† (which is pronounced "Crosses") with Far guitarist Shaun Lopez and they will issue a second EP, dubbed 'EP ††,' on Jan. 24. Their debut recording, called 'EP †,' was released for free, in exchange for providing your email address. However, to prep fans for this new EP, the duo has issued an ethereal, airy new song, called 'Prurien†.'
