Deftones To Unveil Tour, New Video

This weekend is shaping up to be a big one for the Deftones, as the band kicks off its North American tour on Friday and unveils a new video on Sunday.

The band will join Incubus and TapRoot in Seattle on Friday for the first date of what has been dubbed the "Back To School" tour, which is scheduled to run through early December (see "Deftones Rework 'White Pony,' Bolster Tour Itinerary").

The tour launch will coincide with this weekend's debut of "Back To School," the new video from the Deftones. The Paul Hunter-directed clip will premiere on Sunday during MTV's "WWF Sunday Night Heat," which airs at 7 p.m. (ET). The video finds the band leading a minor revolt at Grant High School in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley.

The track is a souped-up version of the previously swirling "Pink Maggit," which closed the band's "White Pony" album. A revamped version of "White Pony," complete with "Back To School,"

hit stores on October 3.
