As seen on BrooklynVegan, System of a Down and the Deftones are teaming up for a summer North American tour, which includes a performance at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL on August 15. Tickets go on presale TODAY, at 10AM (password: soad). Tickets then go on sale to the general public this Saturday (May 5), at 10AM CST. All dates are listed below.

If you follow the Deftones on Twitter/Instagram, they've been documenting the recording process of their new record. The band currently features ex-Quicksand bassist Sergio Vega while longtime bass player Chi Cheng recovers from his car accident. Cheng is doing well but needs to raise money for a (very expensive) medical flight home. Read more on that at BrooklynVegan.
