Apart from recently giving their website a fresh-for-2013-and-beyond revamp, local independent music channel Splintr.com has continued to become a prime proponent in the music scene with this little bit of news: They are bringing Deftones back!



Yes rock bros, the Grammy-winning band comprised of Chino Moreno, Frank Delgado, Stephen Carpenter, Abe Cunningham, and Sergio Vega are returning with a hand from the same guys who successfully brought us Nine Inch Nails in 2009, and staged the original Deftones “Diamond Eyes” concert in 2011.

This year’s concert will be part of Deftones’ worldwide tour for their latest album, Koi No Yokan, (check out our review here) and will be held once again at the World Trade Center in Pasay on May 26, 2013. Seeing some bands once is enough, but this is Deftones we’re talking about—the loud, raucous soundtrack of the lives of many twentysomethings today. This includes us, so we’ll definitely be in the crowd come concert time, singing along to the likes of “Digital Bath,” “Knife Party,” “Be Quiet And Drive,” “My Own Summer,” and “You’ve Seen The Butcher,” to name a few of the band’s hits.

In the 2011 show, two local bands, Urbandub and Slapshock, opened for the Sacramento stars.

This year, two local bands will also be heating up the stage for the main event, one of them being groove metal stalwarts, Queso.

The other co-opener is still up in the air, and this is where you come in dear reader.

Splintr.com wants fans to decide for themselves who they want to play alongside Deftones that night.

First, the mechanics:
1) Log on to Splintr.com and sign in via Facebook.
2)  Go to the artist page of your front act choice. The seven choices are Curbside, Earthmover, Faspitch, Franco, Philia, Pitik, and Salamin.
3)
