In the least dramatic tease of all time, it was pretty obvious based on these pictures on Friday that these guys were going to tour together. That would be Sacramento's Deftones alongside System of a Down. There have been split EP's before of course, and that's what I was hoping for, but no such luck.
So the good news, Deftones are back in action. The bad news, they aren't coming to northern California, at least for now. See the dates over at Metal Injection.
