As you may know, Deftones are supporting their killer new album Gore on the road with Refused this year. That's already a great double bill, and it just got even better. Brooklyn sludgegazers Spotlights, who recently released their promising debut album Tidals, are opening the tour. They were handpicked by the Deftones, and their sound is definitely a great fit.

As mentioned, the tour hits NYC on August 5 at the Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk and Asbury Park on August 10 at Stone Pony Summer Stage. Tickets for those shows are still available.
