Deftones & System of a Down tease their upcoming tour
System of a Down and Deftones are teaming up for a string of mostly East Coast dates in August, tagging both PNC Bank Arts Center on August 4th and Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on August 5th. Tickets for both shows go on sale on May 5th. The shows are SOAD's first East Coast dates since taking a hiatus six years ago.
Though SOAD has been largely inactive as of late, Deftones have not. The band, which features ex-Quicksand bassist Sergio Vega while Chi Cheng recovers from his auto accident, has begun work on its new LP with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who was behind the boards for 2010's Diamond Eyes.
Chi Cheng is steadily improving according to a recent update, but he still needs your help
CHI IS READY TO GO HOME!Donate if you can.
...and i need your help.
1. need to raise money to fly him home. this requires a medical flight.. runs about $20,000
2. need to raise money to buy him a hospital bed that does amazing things to avoid him acquiring bed sores.. runs about $15,000 USED!
3. (could be long term goal but would be nice to get asap for him) a wheel chair accessible van to transport him to and from his treatments and checkups. i am thinking it could run $20-30,000.
In other news, Chino Moreno of Deftones has joined on for another side project called Palms, this time featuring three-fifths of the final lineup of Isis (Aaron Harris, Clifford Meyer and Jeff Caxide):
"Clifford, Jeff and I started Palms a little over a year ago out of a desire to continue making music together after ISIS ended," explained Harris. "Chino joined shortly after and our sound took shape from there. We've worked really hard on this first release and are excited for people to hear it. It's nice to be back behind the drum kit, and with this line up."Look for that release via Ipecac later this year - no word on an exact release date.
"Being a huge ISIS fan I've always dug the moods these dudes convey with their sound," added Moreno. "I am excited to combine my sense of creativity with theirs, and to have fun doing so."

George Clinton @ Warsaw, Brooklyn, NY - February 2008 (tsmithphoto)
George Clinton is getting by with a little help from his friends on his next album -- a list that includes the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Carlos Santana, Sly Stone, RZA, System Of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian, El DeBarge and gospel singer Kim Burrell.George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic are playing BB King's in NYC tonight (July 8). The show is not affiliated with the Afro-Punk Festival going on over at BAM, although the movie "George Clinton: Tales of Dr. Funkenstein" was an official festival selection (it screened at BAM on July 4th & 6th). All George Clinton tour dates below...
They all show up on an assortment of covers on "George Clinton and Some Gangsters of Love," which Clinton will release Sept. 16 on Shanachie.
"It started out with me doing some doo wop songs," Clinton, who grew up singing on street corners in Plainfield, N.J., tells Billboard.com. "As we got going, people started coming through to be on it." Among the first, he says, was Santana, who plays on a version of the Impressions' "Gypsy Woman," and then Stone and DeBarge, who sing on Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar."

Remember how Shavo from System of the Down was filming at Sasquatch for the new video he was making for Bad Brains . Well, here it is....
DOWNLOAD: Bad Brains - Big Take Over (MP3)
Bad Brains played an inspired set on the main stage, sailing from sultry dub reggae into raging hardcore as if the two were meant for each other. They’re the only band who could make that leap, and it’s great having them back. It was awesome hearing classic tracks like “Supertouch” and “Banned in DC” coming from the legendary quartet, played with a passion and ease that suggested they are very real and very glad to be here. HR stood unmoving at the mic, raising an occasional fist but mostly crooning and crowing as the band thrashed in the background. It was the only reggae-fied vibe at Sasquatch! this year and the sound fully suited the setting. [the stranger]AND.....
Bad Brains added some dub, raggae and punk to the day. The influential band was high energy and high impact. I was told Members of System of A Down were video taping the performance. [seattlepi]Previously
