Deftones donating merch sales from canceled Australia/New Zealand tour to road crew

Deftones has launched a new merch line in support of the band’s road crew, whose livelihood has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Sacramento metallers are selling the merch that they’d planned to sell at their canceled spring tour of Australia and New Zealand, and all profits will be donated to the crew members.

“Our touring crew is essential for us to go out and do what we do for all of you,” the band writes in an Instagram post. “We were crushed that we had to cancel our Australia and New Zealand run this month, and our road crew was hit hard.”

“To show them support, we have made our intended merch line for the tour available for purchase online, and we will be giving all profits made back to our crew,” the post continues. “If you are able to buy a shirt, we, and they, really appreciate the support.”

This summer, Deftones is scheduled to launch a U.S. tour with support from Gojira and Poppy.
