Nu-metal legends Deftones have given fans a taste of exciting things to come in an announcement on February 11 of an upcoming tour this summer. Joined by more rock elites, including Poppy and Gojira, the American experimental rock group will be hitting the road in North America for the summer tour. 

Following their last album 'Gore' which released in 2016, Deftones hosted two editions of the 'Dia de los Deftones' music festival in California where Gojira had played with them before.

According to Loudwire, in November, Deftones confirmed a new album release where frontman Chino Moreno said the record "will definitely be out next year" and that he is "hoping that it'll be earlier on in the year".

On its release, the as-yet-unnamed LP will be the ninth studio album from the band and the first after four years following 'Gore'. 

Fans on Twitter couldn't hold back the urge to share their excited comments, saying "Oh my God... I've waited so long to be able to catch you guys and I’m freaking out", and "Literally the sickest tour ever".

There were numerous astonished comments at the idea of the band being joined by Gojira and Poppy, saying, "With Poppy? Damn, that’s so cool, I Love metal Poppy" and "The mighty Deftones...with Poppy. Well now I can say I've heard everything. This will be most interesting indeed."

Poppy released her first metal-inspired album 'I Disagree' last month and is currently on her own tour in promotion of the message of "post-genre" music.

Gojira are working on their first album since 'Magma' which also released four years ago which follows after the Knotfest Roadshow where they performed with Slipknot and Behemoth last year. 

Tickets will be available for purchase on Valentine's Day, at 1 pm local time on the Deftones official website. Check the list of tour dates below.
