After a week of rumors, the official announcement was made that Alice In Chains, Deftones and Mastodon will join forces in an already legendary North American tour this autumn. A first string of dates can be found below (with additional dates to be announced soon).

Quoted AIC guitarist Jerry Cantrell: "We're really looking forward to touring with our friends, Deftones and Mastodon. Each band has its own unique flavor and the combination of all three will make for a great show and a good time on the road."

Commented David Benveniste (Velvet Hammer Music and Management Group): "BlackDiamondSkye spotlights three distinctly different and influential artists and fuses their individual fanbases into a single entity. This is the poster kids will want to have on their walls, and ten years from now people will look back at this as a timeless and important tour."

Odd combo but who knows? Maybe I'll check it out. Deftones suck but the others are good.
