It's the Vitek situation.

Member dies (or is in a coma), band gets insane press, when band finally comes back, they are hyped beyond belief and get billed higher than they should.

:fist: DuVall rules, and yeah, Deftones can go fuck themselves. Maybe me and my buddy will bring that day's newspaper to the show and read it between Mastodon and AiC. Would be more interesting than whatever is going on onstage.

It's funny because it's way more obvious and therefore more directly insulting. I'd love to see some pix or video of a bro or sis reading a newspaper during a shitty band's set.

While I don't doubt this isn't a reason for the higher billing, you need to realise that the Deftones are more popular than Mastodon. Which always plays into who goes up on stage first. I'm not a fan of theirs but they do have some popular albums. If I recall they've got a couple albums that have gone platinum in the US. Something Mastodon has yet to, and probably never will achieve. The sympathy card can always been played well to one's advantage but more often then not in music, the band with the better album sales is the band that gets higher billing.

Yeah, but correct me if I'm wrong, but no one was really caring about the Deftones (nor do I think they were really doing anything...) until their bassist went into a coma. Right?

Eliminate yourself as a metal fan and Deftones are way bigger than Mastodon, and it has nothing to do with Chi, so they should be coming on after them. For the record, they have some songs I like, but I've never thought too highly of the Deftones.

I'm loving this from top to bottom. I'm ok w/ Mastodon opening. They've been around less years than other 2, sold less than other 2. I'm not hating on Mastodon. I like Mastodon but this is where they should be anyway. I still love the Deftones. Last couple times I saw Deftones they were really good. And pretty sure there were still alot of people still cared about them even before Chi was in his car wreck. As far as Alice In Chains go all I have to say is see them live once and that will change opinions. There new stuff smokes, their old stuff still smokes. Top to bottom I think this will be a great tour. I think it will be good for Mastodon to get more exposure on this tour. Just please no CTS again....

I think this is an incorrect statement. Deftones fans are highly loyal and the fan base they had when Around the Fur came out, is pretty much the same one they got now. If there was no hype at the time it may of been because of the lengthy delays between albums, and that Saturday Night Wrist is generally hated (it was the last album with Chi, and the only album to come out since 2003, until Diamond Eyes is released in a few weeks).

This is sort of off-topic, but are you telling me that there is a single band on Summer Slaughter this year you think is popular enough to headline over Decapitated, Vitek or no-Vitek?

But, yeah, I was under the impression that Deftones were bigger than Mastodon myself. But I'm not a fan of either band. Highly doubt I'll be attending.

Mastodon is more music driven, Deftones are lyric driven, AIC is like a mix I guess. I don't know, I think they fit together just fine. It's exposing Mastodon to a whole bunch of people who may not of ever sat down and listened to them, which is good.

You know what would be really awesome? Tool, Opeth & Mastodon. Now THAT is a zone-out stoned concert :light:

I'm not sure about that because like I said before I'm not a fan of theirs. I didn't even know about their bassists being in a coma. But after a quick look up on wikipedia i've learned that they have two platinum and two gold albums in the US. Their last album, released in 2006, has sold in the 250,000 copy range so it seems that they have maintained a decent level of popularity. Their new album comes out in a few weeks I think it said. So the billing over Mastodon makes sense. Mastodon is just there to give a newer metal band more exposure which is a good thing for them.

If this had the real Alice in Chains and Pre-Crack the Skye Mastodon, I would be shitting my pants right now. However, its not the case for either band, so unless I'm really bored that day and the ticket prices are cheap I will not go to this.

i don't understand the hate for Deftones. i think they're amazing and like stated earlier they're definently lyric driven. i'm going just for them alone. Alice in Chains is a bonus because i've been wanting to see them for awhile now. i don't care much for Mastodon, IMO Crack The Skye is overrated, i listen to it every now and then but get bored of it after awhile. that's just me though.

anyways i'm really stoked for this show.

not at all because in my opinion some bands are lyric and vocally driven. and some bands are definently music driven, but in my opinion, not all, but a lot of bands that are music driven, the vocals and lyrics usually aren't cared for much until the vocals grow onto the listener. whereas Deftones' music most fans like them for their lyrics and the voice. yeah their music isn't complex, but the music they create definently go along with the lyrics and vocals.

I don't get all the hate for Deftones but I do know there are some out there that do hate them. I know the first part of the 2000s their shows were really good or really bad depending on how strung out Chino was but it seems like the last few years I really haven't heard a whole lot of shows from them that were really bad. I know on Summer Sanitarium in '03 I was quite disapointed by them but then after that they got alot better.

That's probably true from a technical aspect since Layne was probably high out of his mind every time he stepped on stage, but it still strikes me as kind of...wrong. I wasn't crazy about Black Gives Way to Blue, either, though.

I didn't see AiC when they were here last, but with Mastodon makes it a good deal by me. Definitely wouldn't want all of Crack for the third time if it's an opening set. If it was like with Dethklok where they played 90 minutes, sure. But Gimme some Leviathan and Remission with the newer stuff and I'm good.

I don't understand how anyone can feel that way about AIC now? As great as Layne was he was not nor will he ever be the lifeblood of AIC. That goes to Jerry Cantrell. Without him AIC is non-existant. Much the same way Black Sabbath is nothing with out Tony Iommi or Iron Maiden is nothing without Steve Harris. Yes, Cantrell is on that level when it comes to that, he is AIC. His songwritting style hasn't changed much at all since Layne was with them and Cantrell does the lead vocals on most of the new stuff, not Duval. It's not like Jerry wasn't respectful of Layne's memory either. He waited several years before coming out with a new album. So please explain to me how the hell this is fake AIC?

Because he waited 14 years then arbitrarily started the band back up? Because that says to me "Oh shit, I'm out of money" more than "Oh shit, I've got some great AIC ideas."

With AIC's success I doubt Cantrell was running out of money. He made the most off their albums because his name was credited on every song but a handful of them. Also, did it ever occur to you that it took Cantrell this long to release an new AIC record because he had to wait until he was ready? It couldn't have been an easy descision for him to do this. I'm sure he struggled for a long time on weather to continue with the band or not. He didn't just lose and bandmate in Layne. He lost a man who was a brother to him and the recovery from that no doubt took him awhile to get over. He probably isn't over it yet and more than likely won't ever recover fully from it.

The bands popularity has remained very high through the years and no doubt Layne's death plays a part in that. But what plays the bigger part is the great music they recorded and I believe, will continue to record. To me what Cantrell has done is more about rewarding the fans for that undying loyalty. He rocorded a great new AIC record for the fans and the memory of Layne. I don't think it's as selfish of a motive as you think it is.

WTF? How do they go from playing Irving Plaza to playing MSG in under a year?

I was thinking that myself. They've been playing places that have about a 4 or 5 thousand capacity for the last few years. I know their popularity remains strong and maybe it's bigger than we think it is. All the dates here are arenas or amphitheater venues. I don't think their management would book these venues if they didn't think they would sell enough tickets.

As a long time fan it's actually cool to see them going back to the bigger venues. It's a positive as far as i'm conserned.

Dream Theater played the Molson Amphitheatre just last year and were able to sell enough tickets, so I think Alice in Chains won't have a problem at least matching what Dream Theater drew. Although most of those markets listed were already hit on AIC's last run, but as someone else mentioned having Deftones as main support will help out a bit.

Tickets will probably be really expensive though.

Don't forget that places like Toronto and NYC are far more populated than most cities. So it's easier for well known bands to play bigger venues there. If they did this in my city i'm not sure if they would sell enough for the HSBC arena. Even with people coming from the surrounding areas like Rochester and sourthern Ontario it'll still be tough I think.

I didn't know that about CMB. Around my area it got some airplay but not so much that I thought it was a #1 single at all. ALIV was played more often when the album was about to come out. I'm not surprised with Your Descision getting the top single spot. That song has become HUGE for them. The only time I listen to local radio is when i'm driving to and from work and they always seem to be playing it.

Oh I'd like to point out, after looking at the DOWNLOAD Fest 2010 lineup, Deftones is direct support for the headline on Saturday. RATM is the headline and they are both above MEGADETH...and Lamb of God. So if you questioned their popularity, there you go. It doesn't get much bigger than Download.
I didn't know that... don't know much about deftones honestly, but thanks for the information. Cool.

Little heads up. Had friend e-mail me presale info. Ticket info is kinda scary. Although for those SUPER AIC fans there is a $1500 VIP offer. All I remember is it involves a Cantrell signature series guitar. Wow. Don't think that's even in a Kiss VIP package. Anyway the prices I looked @ was for STL date. Tickets are $65. If I had to make a bet it'll average $50-75 depending on market. Save up kiddies!!!!

Official dates have been out for awhile but they're still adding dates I believe. They recently added a Fairfax, VA date on 9/26 that I'll probably go to.

Honestly I didn't read the note outside of the added gig. I just copied it off Alice In Chains, Myspace bulletin.

Kinda happy, but no matter what I'm sure I'm gonna be disappointed with a 30 minute Mastodon set.

No way their set is just 30 mins.

That's what it sounds like right now. Maybe 45.

I hate saying like this because the order of the bands is not right but this is how I see the tour happening:

Mastodon: 45 Minutes
Deftones: 60 Minutes
Alice In Chains: 75-90 Minutes

*really just change places with Mastodon and Deftones and it will be a better tour*

I probably still will, because I'd like to see Alice again and it's at my school, which makes it almost mandatory.

I really want to, but it's during school and it's tough for me to drive down there.
