Deftones Announce North American Tour With Gojira and Poppy
For a few days now, rumors have circulated that Deftones would be hitting the road later this year with Gojira. Now, the bands have officially announced the tour, and they’ve added pop-metal star Poppy to the line-up.
The tour kicks off in Portland and snakes its way through the country. Things kick off in July and continue through the whole summer. Tickets go on sale this Friday via the Deftones’ website.
“We’re super excited to have Gojira spending the summer with us,” says frontman Chino Moreno, “and Poppy will be a really fun addition as well. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone this summer. It’s been a minute.”

Hopefully, the tour will coincide with the release of Deftones’ long-awaited new album. In a recent interview, Chino said that the album would “definitely” be out in 2020.
“I’m hoping that it’ll be earlier on in the year, but I feel like once I give a definitive answer or speculate exactly when, I feel like we’ll be held to it so I kind of want to continue on,” said the singer. “Of course, it’ll be out next year — hopefully earlier than later. Our biggest thing is making sure that it’s good. We’ll be performing it, once it’s out, for the next two or three years, so we want to be sure it’s the best it can be and want to make everyone happy – including ourselves.”
We all know – and love – Deftones’ incredible back-catalogue, but the band also have some seriously under-appreciated material. We’re here to rectify that.
