Sacramento's Deftones are currently on tour supporting their eighth studio record entitled Gore, which brought the band to Mississauga's International Centre (Arrow Hall) on August 13th, 2016. The tour's main support was Swedish hardcore/punk legends Refused, helping to dial up the tour's dose of high gain and added political prowess.
I had the opportunity to photograph the set thanks to Blare, which is a long time coming for me when it comes to Deftones. I've shot them before but only during the day at a festival in Detroit. Since then I've been hoping to get the chance to shoot their headline show in a proper venue space. Needless to say, I'm stoked about these photos you'll see below. Don't get me wrong, I'm amped about the Refused photos as well but you can't really beat capturing their massive comeback that happened 2012 at Toronto's Sound Academy (yup, I was there).
Check out all the photos from the night below and share the hell out of them.
