Chino (Deftones / Team Sleep) has been seeing rumors posted on websites about bands they're supposedly taking on tour in 2006. One band he wanted to mention is The Warriors, and that Deftones will be taking them out sometime in Spring or Summer 2006. On another note, Todd WIlkinson of Team Sleep is at work in the studio on some solo material, and has also begun tracking new material for the next Team Sleep record. There is also talks of a collaboration with members of Dillinger Escape Plan; Todd and Chino have been exchanging music with Ben and Greg.
