Deftones' U.S. tour with Gojira has been pushed back yet again – with Poppy now having to drop off the bill.

Deftones' planned U.S. tour with Gojira has been in the works for two years now, but the pandemic has once again put these highly-anticipated shows on hold.

The bands were set to hit North America together alongside Poppy, but having had to reschedule the dates until 2022, Poppy can now no longer make it. On the flip side, several new gigs have been added for the April / May run.

"As everyone knows, difficult decisions are a part of life, and we faced one recently," say Deftones. "After much contemplation, we've made the decision to postpone our summer tour with Gojira one more time. As passionate as you are about seeing us, we are even more so to be back onstage together.

"With the imminence of the tour, and the pandemic lasting much longer than we anticipated, we came to the realisation that uncertainty still remains in different markets throughout the country. We do not want to be in a situation where shows have to be adjusted or cancelled on short notice for any guideline adjustments or reconsiderations while we are on the road."

Deftones and Gojira will kick off their new tour on April 14 at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland, and finish up on May 28 at The Armory in Minneapolis. See the full dates below.
