Deftones and Karnivool to tour Australia


Deftones will tour Australia with Karnivool and Voyager this November.

Scoring their first Australian no.1 with their latest album Gore, Deftones will play five shows across the country with the two Perth bands scheduled for support.

Karnivool say: “Some things are too good to say no to. Karnivool and Deftones? Get faaaaarked.

“Stoked to announce we are heading out on the road supporting The Deftones in Australia in November. This is the first time we have supported a band in Oz for more than a decade (G’day Cog!) but off we go. Cant wait.”

Deftones were set to appear at the now defunct Soundwave Festival in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in January this year. The event was pulled due to poor sales.

In the meantime, they have a run of shows in the US and Europe lined up, including an appearance at Download in June.
