In the last few years, Deftones have stopped touring the U.S. in favor of throwing their own festivals: Dia de los Deftones, held at San Diego’s Petco Park, has included Future, CHVRCHES, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and more.

But Tuesday, the band announced their first full U.S. summer tour since 2017. The tour, with guests Gojira and Poppy, kicks off on July 27th in Portland, Oregon, and continues all summer until wrapping up in Denver on September 5th. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday.

“We’re super excited to have Gojira spending the summer with us, and Poppy will be a really fun addition as well,” frontman Chino Moreno said in a statement. “We’re looking forward to seeing everyone this summer. It’s been a minute.”

It’s unclear if the tour will include new music. Last year, Moreno said they had been working on their first album since 2016’s Gore. “We are kind of enjoying our time making it,” Moreno told NBC San Diego. “It’s been a cool process. We get together, we work for a couple of weeks, whether that’s just making noise and coming up with ideas and then everybody just goes home and comes back to work on ’em a little bit more.”
