Alice In Chains, Deftones and Mastodon Mega Tour
Over the course of the past week, message boards across the Internet have been buzzing about the tour following a series of mysterious videos and the countdown posted on the recently launched blackdiamondskye.com site.
"Rather than launch with a traditional tour announcement, we wanted to engage the fans first," says David "Beno" Benveniste, founder of Velvet Hammer Music and Management Group, who rep Alice In Chains and Deftones. "We gave them a cryptic clip featuring video snippets of each band and they lit up the internet. Now there's an entire online community talking about the tour and speculating about the bands involved. It's thrilling to see them communicate and respond so positively to this exciting tour." - more on this story
