"Along with Limp Bizkit, the Deftones are often considered to be disciples of Korn, but in fact, they've been around for just as long (if not longer). They were also one of the first groups to alternate heavy riffs and screamed vocals with more ethereal music and hushed singing — spawning a fair amount of imitators in their wake. Although the group was more heavy metal-based early on, the early '90s saw the Deftones expand their sound even further, obviously inspired by such groundbreakers as Tool, Rage Against the Machine, and Faith No More.
The band built a dedicated fan base the old fashioned way – by touring relentlessly, and each of the Deftones four albums have gone Gold or Platinum and have collectively sold four million copies.
With their newest release, Saturday Night Wrist, the Deftones have combined the brutality of Deftones with the diversity of White Pony and added a new element of sonic maturity and adventurism that can be heard in the cinematic soundscape of “u,u,d,d,l,r,l,r,a,b,select,start,” the female stream-of-consciousness rant of “Pink Cellphone,” or the caustic clamor and majestic splendor of “Rats! Rats! Rats!”".

"How much does it cost to book Deftones for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Deftones booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Deftones charge for an event. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
There is low probability to book Deftones for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Deftones agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Deftones, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Deftones booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Deftones, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
