While it's easy to hate their peers, there's always been something respectable about Deftones. The Sacramento band has freed themselves from the clutches of nü-metal, and the gutter that is hard rock radio, managing to stay relevant well into their second decade together (this, despite a 2008 automobile accident that put longtime bassist Chi Cheng in a coma).
Currently touring on last year's Diamond Eyes, Deftones will be at the Crystal Ballroom on Saturday, April 16, but that show is waaaaay sold out. Bummer. But dry those eyes, the band has announced an additional date on the previous night, Friday, April 15. Not only that, but they'll be joined by Dillinger Escape Plan and Funeral Party as well.
