Deftones and Rise Against are teaming up and taking their respective catalogues on the road this summer.
The two bands have announced a co-headlining North American tour, and it will get underway in Chicago on June 9. The hard-hitting double bill will charge its way north of the American border for its sole Canadian show on June 11 at the freshly rebranded Budweiser Stage. From there, things head stateside again, eventually wrapping up in Phoenix on July 9.
In a press release, Rise Against shared the following statement:
Every once in awhile you get to share the stage with a band so powerful they make you work harder. After conspiring for years, we're excited to finally share the road with such an epic band. We can't wait to put Deftones and Rise Against fans under the same roof in 2017.
We've been talking to Rise about touring together for a while now. Finally, everything aligned and we get to spend the summer playing shows with our friends. We couldn¹t be more excited and can't wait to see you at the shows.
Deftones fans should remember that the band released their latest LP Gore last year, while Rise Against diehards have been waiting for a new album since 2014's The Black Market.
If that wasn't exciting enough, they'll be joined by support from Thrice, as well as Three Trapped Tigers and Frank Iero and the Patience at select shows. Find the complete list of upcoming shows listed down below.
