Alice in Chains, Deftones & Mastodon to Tour Starting this September


So Alice in Chains, Deftones and Mastodon all announced on their Facebook pages that they will be touring together starting in September. They all posted a link to a website with a countdown clock; blackdiamondskye.com (which conveniently contains words from all their latest album titles) and the Deftones post stated that pre-sales would start as early as May 15th. I know this might be pushing it in terms of it being “underground music” news but I figured I already put up a Deftones post and fuck it, I like all these 3 bands.

Alice in Chains just recently reunited by tapping William Duvall (vocalist/guitarist for Comes With the Fall) to replace their late singer Layne Staley who died from a drug overdose in 2002. I actually really like the new lead singer and their new album, he’s had tough shoes to fill but managed to hold his own and fit in well with AIC while still keeping his own vocal identity. Mastodon’s live rendition of Crack the Skye was amazing so it’d be nice to seem them again, and it’s been a while since the Deftones toured so this will be a great show overall (hopefully I can afford tickets.) Check out Alice in Chains’ official post:
