Formed in Sacramento, CA during 1988, Deftones thrive between extremes. The multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning band embody pure alternative with artful sonic fits of beauty, aggression, seduction, emotion, tension, and release. Distilling movements of cinematic rock, psychedelia, and shoegaze into an inimitable sound independent of boundaries, the quintet skate past genre lines and remain cited as an influential and impactful presence with 10 million albums sold worldwide as of 2019.
Thus far, their career spans eight full-length releases. Following a pair of platinum-certified records, Adrenaline  and Around the Fur , the group reached the first of many creative and critical high watermarks on 2000’s White Pony. Minted platinum by the RIAA, it bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 as the first of six eventual Top 10 entries for the band. Not to mention, “Elite” garnered a GRAMMY® Award. Speaking to its influence, Rolling Stone touted White Pony on its “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time,” and Pitchfork noted, “White Pony was the change Deftones wanted to see in themselves and they watched you change right along with them.” In its wake, 2003’s Deftones went gold as the band released a string of adored albums, including Diamond Eyes , Koi No Yokan , and, most recently, Gore. In 2016, the latter debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200, moving over 71K units first-week and marking their highest chart position in 13 years.
In between headline tours on five continents, they successfully curated, launched, presented, and headlined their own festival, Dia De Los Deftones, in 2018. Selling out both installments to date, the eclectic and diverse lineups hosted everyone from Future and CHVRCHES to Gojira and Megan Thee Stallion.
In 2020, Deftones will release their much-anticipated ninth full-length and continue their trailblazing arc as an alternative leader.
Deftones are Chino Moreno [vocals, guitar], Stephen Carpenter [guitar], Frank Delgado [keys, samples], Abe Cunningham [drums], and Sergio Vega [bass].
