Each tour the Deftones have embarked on since the release of 'Diamond Eyes' has been its own event, from the BlackDiamondSkye tour -- with fellow heavyweights Alice and Chains and Mastodon -- to the dates with Baroness in tow. And now the spring run in support of 'Diamond Eyes' will see New Jersey chaos dealers Dillinger Escape Plan grabbing the opening slot for what will be a must-see show.

Rumors and hints of this tour have been making their way around the Internet for nearly two weeks now. Details have been kept under wraps, but in this day and age of communication overload, how long can such news be kept hidden? Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato put it best, saying, "The cat has exploded out of the bag."

One fan still read the message cryptic, asking for clarity. Puciato explained, "The cat in this instance is a spring tour that we are a part of ... And it seems as though the word is out."

Beginning in Seattle on April 14, the 'Diamond Eyes' tour dates will run across the US, ending with two shows in New York City. More dates are expected.
