Multi-platinum alternative rock band Deftones have announced a summer tour supporting System Of A Down.

The two-week summer jaunt kicks off on August 2nd in Philadelphia and wraps August 15 in Chicago.

From their 1994 debut Adrenaline to their platinum-certified, Billboard chart-topping, Grammy-winning breakthrough album White Pony, Deftones have continually crossed-over genres, defied categorization and delivered compelling live performances around the world.

The Sacramento band's 2010 release Diamond Eyes was named iTunes' "Rock Album of the Year," as well as KERRANG!'s 2010 Album of the Year. Diamond Eyes also graced many other critics and readers "Best Of" lists, including MySpace, AOL Noisecreep, Alternative Press, MOG and Drowned In Sound.

Deftones are currently in Los Angeles, CA recording their seventh studio full-length with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters, Rush) who also produced Diamond Eyes. The album will be released Reprise Records later this year.

Deftones upcoming tour dates are as follows:

08/02   Philadelphia, PA - Susquehanna Bank Center

08/04   Holmdel, NJ - PNC Bank Arts Center

08/05   Wantagh, NY - Nikon at Jones Beach Theater
