We’re excited to see everyone again out at Petco in November.”

Earlier this year, bassist Sergio Vega confirmed he had left the band after 12 years. Though it sounded like a messy break up, Vega thanked his former bandmates and Deftones fans for making a lasting impact. “I want you to know that I appreciate all the years we spent together: writing, performing, being taken into your worlds," he said in a video statement. "I learned a lot from each one of you, when you brought me in, you created a new sense of passion for music that I will always cherish and carry with me. You truly changed my life.”
