What started out as a high school jam session became one of the biggest alternative metal bands to come out of California in the late 80s and 90s. Lead singer Chino Moreno met guitarist Stephen Carpenter and drummer Abe Cunningham in high school in 1988. They soon laid a demo tape with the help of bassist Chi Cheng and decided to keep him in their official lineup. The band would embark on various Deftones tours throughout California with Korn (tickets) before being discovered by a Maverick Records representative who signed them soon after.
Deftones' first studio album Adrenaline was released in 1995 to a lukewarm audience. However, after Deftones tickets went on sale and the band went on an extensive Deftones tour, Internet promos and word of mouth spread and the band garnered a larger following of fans. Deftones was then recruited to contribute to the Crow City of Angels soundtrack. The band can also be seen playing the song in a scene from the movie.
During the years following, Deftones released five additional albums, four of which hit the top 10 spots on U.S. charts. The band earned a Grammy Award in 2001 for Best Metal Performance for the song "Elite" from their third studio album White Pony. Interest in Deftones tickets was at an all-time high, and the Deftones tour sold out almost immediately. Their rise to success was bittersweet for the band who would soon be met with tragedy.
Deftones' Diamond Eyes was released after a serious car accident left Chi Cheng in a semi-conscious state. The album was released in place of Eros, the unreleased album that features Cheng. The album was recorded without the use of Pro Tools to acheive a raw sound. The Deftones official site stated the a portion of each ticket purchase would go to benefit the Chi Ling Cheng Special Needs Trust for continued medical care.
