Deftones at MSG (more by Matthew Eisman)

It's official! Deftones and The Dillinger Escape Plan will team up for a North American tour that hits NJ's Starland Ballroom on 5/11 and Best Buy Theater in NYC on 5/13 & 5/14. Tickets for Starland Ballroom go on sale 1/8 at noon, while tickets for 5/13 and 5/14 go on AMEX presale at 10AM today (1/6) with regular sale beginning on 1/8 at noon. All dates are also on presale now and listed below.

In related news, The Dillinger Escape Plan recently showed up on the 2010 Pitchfork Readers Poll as the 38th best LP of the year, despite very little coverage of the band by the site. As a matter of fact, The Dillinger Escape Plan received the highest percentage of #1 votes (73% of people that voted Dillinger, voted them #1), smashing Kanye West's #2 ranking (39%). So how did that happen? DEP campaigned for it.
