The back-from-the-dead post-hardcore forerunners Refused will be the supporting act for the upcoming tour of the only socially acceptable nü metal band to listen to. The Deftones, whose eighth album, Gore, will drop next Friday, April 8, are hitting the road in the US and Europe from May to June. I've never gotten around to listening to Deftones after their self-titled album, but I've definitely been meaning to. What's newsworthy here, at least for me, is that they've paired up with Refused. I'll admit it; their sterile revival album, Freedom, was one of the biggest musical disappointments of my life, what with their groundbreaking The Shape of Punk to Come being one of my favorite albums of all time. And I wasn't too thrilled with their opening act for Faith No More last year, since about half of the set list featured Freedom tracks. But after wanting to see Refused live for so long, I feel like I should see them any chance I get, even if this will be my fourth time. What did you think of Freedom? Are you lining up for tickets to this show? Let me know in the comments!
