Yesterday, The PRP put up the following teaser video:
They noted that a website called blackdiamondskye.com is associated with the video and speculated that based on the content it looks like Alice In Chains, Deftones and Mastodon will be announcing a tour together this fall. I don't know about you, but that sounds like an incredible tour. I still have never seen AIC live (kicking myself for missing the opportunity to see them with Layne Staley while he was still alive, but apparently the new singer, William DuVall is solid in the live setting...he is certainly great on the new album), I haven't seen the Deftones in years and they are always great live and Mastodon (who I'm actually seeing tonight) are also incredible live, so this is pretty much a winner all around.
I would imagine that AIC would be the headliners with Deftones as direct support and Mastodon as the opener because AIC and Deftones have the larger fanbases. This would certainly be a great bill for Mastodon to be on as they would gain the most exposure to new fans.
We shall see. An announcement is scheduled for May 3rd.
Alice In Chains "Your Decision"
Deftones "Diamond Eyes"
