All the action, on and off the stage


Diamonds in the rough

With a willingness to stretch out and explore different musical forms, California band Deftones have enjoyed international success with their form of alternative metal. White Pony, their album of 2000 saw the band earn a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance for the song Elite. Since then they've notched up their sixth album release with 2010's Diamond Eyes and more recently their LP of cover songs to celebrate Record Store Day, simply called Covers. This year they've also been on an extensive tour of Europe and the US so should be well practiced for Reading and Leeds, their only UK festival appearance.
