Grammy Award-winning Californian icons, DEFTONES, will return to Australia for national headline shows this November.

The tour will kick off at Perth's Metro City on Tuesday 8th November, before hitting Adelaide's Thebarton Theatre on Thursday 10th November, Melbourne's Festival Hall on Friday 11th November, Sydney's Hordern Pavilion on Saturday 12th November, and wrapping up at the Riverstage in Brisbane on Sunday 13th November.

DEFTONES snared their first ever Australian No.1 album with Gore last month, and are currently in the midst of a massive world tour. Gore is the result of a band that's always been one step ahead of their alternative metal peers.

They have spent their career battling on the front-line, always pushing ahead stylistically and crafting crushingly effective metal tracks whilst breaking new ground.

DEFTONES haven't lost any of their creative spark.

If anything, their fire is blazing higher than ever.

They "are simply a brutal and out-of-control noise machine...always shattering the foundations of the buildings they play in” - NME.

Selling out most of their own national headline dates in a matter of hours just last week, KARNIVOOL are confirmed to hit the road with DEFTONES.

With their fourth studio album imminent, KARNIVOOL will embark on their first support slot in over ten years, unleashing their innovative live show on music lovers around the country.

Don't miss this one-off opportunity to catch DEFTONES joined by some of Australia's finest, KARNIVOOL and Voyager, later this year.

"Much of Gore seems coated with a hazy, cloudy malevolence that constantly catches you off guard, as seething guitar passages infiltrate dreamy moments spearheaded by vocalist Chino Moreno's at-times ethereal vocals...” - Rolling Stone Australia (4 stars)

"Over 20 years and eight albums, Chino Moreno and his fellow Deftones have forged new paths in experimental hardcore, embracing trip hop, electronica, gothic and dream pop.” - NME (4 stars)

"Gore is easily Deftones' most engaging record since White Pony, filled with carefully crafted hooks disguised as bridges and transition...As with all of their best music, it sounds like the brutal, beautiful result of the band being passionate enough to rip each other's heads off.” - Pitchfork
