Most recently, Deftones joined Avenged Sevenfold for their headlining U.S. tour last October. The band is touring in support of their seventh studio album Koi No Yokan, which was released in November on 2012. It debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, with over 65,000 sold its first week, and spawned two Top Five hits at Rock radio (“Tempest” and “Swerve”). Koi No Yokan has also met with critical acclaim. Revolver named it their “Album of the Year” at the magazine’s Golden God Awards, while SPIN selected it as one of its Top 50 Albums of 2012. The NY Post also hailed it as “one of the best rock albums of the year.” Watch the video for “Swerve City” and find out more on the band’s press site.
