RISE AGAINST THIS SUMMER
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY FEB 10 AT DEFTONES.COM
“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
“Deftones take this fascinating battle to the next level” – Newsday
“…heart-wrenching…bright thrash reprieves…Gore, marks experimental-rock gospel..” – Spin
