Deftones and Incubus Announce Co-Headlining Tour, Because Apparently It’s 1999


Deftones_Incubus_tourI wasn’t aware it was the late ’90s again, but Lambgoat has just posted dates for an upcoming Deftones/Incubus headlining tour, so I must have dreamed the last sixteen years. Where are my UFOs and my canvas Menace belt? I don’t want to be late to Snocore and miss Puya.

Real talk, it’s interesting to see that these two bands have survived the nu-metal era so well, but I can’t help but think that Incubus are luckier for getting to tour with Deftones than the other way around. Deftones are now hailed as a serious influence by a lot of respectable musicians, and are these days considered more of an artsy post-rock outfit than the bunch of fucked-up teenagers who rocked Ozzfest ’99, while Incubus still smack of suburban hippies at bad music festivals. Then again, “Follow Me” and “Drive” were massive, so what do I know?

Dates are below. The openers are Death From Above 1979 and The Bots. I’ve never heard of either of them, but that might just be because I’m old enough to remember a time when the headliners were just blowing up.
