The Coronavirus Pandemic has really put a dent in everyone’s way of life and often in the most aggregious of ways. Thanks to its infiltration our health, livelihoods and passions that take us away from it all have been placed in jeopardy. It’s during a time like this that people crave new music to remind them of more pleasurable times while we continue to ride the storm. That said, its great to find a new music video coming care of the Deftones and I’ve embedded the clip for “Ohms” down below for your enjoyment. I’ll return with some personal thoughts afterward. Enjoy.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last couple of years, you probably already know that Ghost is one of the breakthrough artists on the Hard Rock scene and despite their garish looks, their melodies are quite accessible and not as over the top heavy as some might assume. Also hot at the moment is the Instagram social network and to help celebrate the bands new album and songs, they have taken to the medium to deliver what is called an “Instagram Story Video”. Check it out below and I will give my overview afterwards.
Sure we are in the middle of winter and that makes announcing the summer tours all the more pleasurable. Here’s the latest news about a co-headlining run by Deftones and Rise Against. Two bands that I still have yet to witness in concert. Dig in to the full on press release, dates and poster. I’ll close up with some thoughts of course.
The Press Release:
Deftones will join forces with Rise Against this summer for an extensive co-headline tour. Produced by Live Nation, the North American run will kick off on June 9 in Chicago, IL at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island. It will include shows at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY (June 13), Starplex Pavilion in Dallas, TX (June 27) and Concord Pavilion in Concord, CA (July 6). See below for itinerary.
“Every once in awhile you get to share the stage with a band so powerful they make you work harder. After conspiring for years, we’re excited to finally share the road with such an epic band. We can’t wait to put Deftones and Rise Against fans under the same roof in 2017,” said Rise Against.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, February 10, at 10 AM local time. In addition to regular Deftones/Rise Against single ticket options, fans in select cities will have access to a special 3- or 4-show TICKET TO ROCK package, which will include a lawn ticket to multiple rock shows at select venues this summer.

Deftones have released eight studio albums to date – including 2016’s Gore – and have sold over 10 million albums worldwide. “Hard rock thrives on conflict and chaos, and no band has found more beauty and soaring aggression within those ingredients than Deftones,” said the Los Angeles Times. The multi-Platinum, GRAMMY®-winning alternative rock band from Sacramento, CA is vocalist/guitarist Chino Moreno, guitarist Stephen Carpenter, keyboardist/samplist Frank Delgado, drummer Abe Cunningham, and bassist Sergio Vega.
