Deftones Australian tour dates announced

DEFTONES,  California's alternative metal kings, have announced their Australian tour dates, with Sunday, November 13 pinned for their Brisbane show.

The band are touring the world supporting their new album Gore, which hit number 1 in Australia after it was released.

 Founded in 1988, Deftones consist of Chino Moreno (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Stephen Carpenter (lead guitar), Frank Delgado (keyboards and turntables), Abe Cunningham (drums and percussion) and Sergio Vega (bass).

Deftones have released eight albums.

Success was found with their second and third albums, Around the Fur and White Pony, including a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance for the song "Elite".

In 2008, while Deftones were working on an album tentatively titled Eros, bassist Chi Cheng was involved in a traffic collision, leaving him in a minimally conscious state which ultimately led to his death in 2013.

Karnivool, who have already had sellout success of their own have been tagged as main support for the run.

The the last Big Day Out was that band's last appearance in Australia, musicfeeds reported.
