After spending weeks hammering out the details, the Deftones have finally announced dates for a U.S. tour that will see the band make the rounds with fellow hard rockers Incubus and TapRoot.
The Deftones' "Back To School" tour gets rolling on October 13 in Seattle and has lined up shows through late November.
The trek follows the Deftones' successful tour of the U.S. this summer and brings to fruition a union with Incubus months in the making. Both the Deftones and Incubus had expressed an interest in touring together on MTV's "Total Request Live" during their visits to the set this summer, and the Deftones camp confirmed that a tour was in the works last month (see Deftones Eye Incubus Tour As Chino Toils On Side Project").
The trek will find the Deftones continuing to support their "White Pony" album, while Incubus hits the road on the heels of the release of its "When Incubus Attacks, Vol. 1" rarities EP.
For openers TapRoot, the tour will offer another high-profile opportunity to push its debut album, "Gift."
