"Every once in awhile you get to share the stage with a band so powerful they make you work harder," said RISE AGAINST in a statement. "After conspiring for years, we're excited to finally share the road with such an epic band. We can't wait to put DEFTONES and RISE AGAINST fans under the same roof in 2017."
Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, February 10 at 10 a.m. local time. In addition to regular DEFTONES/RISE AGAINST single-ticket options, fans in select cities will have access to a special 3- or 4-show Ticket To Rock package, which will include a lawn ticket to multiple rock shows at select venues this summer.

DEFTONES have released eight studio albums to date – including 2016's "Gore" – and have sold over 10 million albums worldwide. "Hard rock thrives on conflict and chaos, and no band has found more beauty and soaring aggression within those ingredients than DEFTONES," said the Los Angeles Times. The multi-platinum, Grammy-winning alternative rock band from Sacramento, California is vocalist/guitarist Chino Moreno, guitarist Stephen Carpenter, keyboardist/samplist Frank Delgado, drummer Abe Cunningham and bassist Sergio Vega.
Chicago-based band RISE AGAINST's most recent album is "The Black Market", which hit No. 1 on the Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock albums charts. Alternative Press awarded "The Black Market" four stars, noting, "Whatever meaning you take from them [the songs]…one thing remains solid — the sheer heart with which they were forged and the very visceral emotion they contain," and Kerrang! praised the album as "a magnificent wake-up call." RISE AGAINST is Tim McIlrath (lead vocals/rhythm guitar),Zach Blair (lead guitar),Joe Principe (bass) and Brandon Barnes (drums).
