Deftones' Stef Carpenter to miss upcoming tour: 'I'm just not ready to leave the country yet'

A hometown friend will be filling in.

When Deftones perform in Europe and the UK this summer, they will be without guitar player Stef Carpenter, who says, "I'm just not ready to leave home and leave the country yet." The band's "good friend," Lance Jackman, will be filling in.

Carpenter issued the following statement this morning (see below): "As much as I would love to be on the road with my brothers, playing for all of our incredible international fans, I have decided to remain playing domestically for now. With everything going on in the world, I'm just not ready to leave home and leave the country yet. I wish I can see each and every one of you, but for now, our good friend from Sacramento, Lance, will be fulfilling my duties. Although I'm watching from afar, I'll be there in spirit with my Deftones family."

Fat, flat-earther bitch.


anonymous 85 days ago

I remember hearing this dumbass on a podcast saying he refused to get dental work done because they made him wear a mask in the waiting room. On top of the flat earth shit...clown city


evil_hero 85 days ago

is it his choice or the cucked liberal nations abroad?


anonymous 85 days ago

Thinks the plane will fly right into space once he leaves the country.


anonymous 85 days ago

Full blown retard.


anonymous 85 days ago

Guy has flown to Australia and claims he didn't know how he got there or if the world is indeed round. Eh, sucks for the 'tones to have that liability around.


anonymous 85 days ago

lol dude probably pees his pants just looking at a picture of a plane his little flat-earth brain just explodes


anonymous 85 days ago

People making fun of him are getting their 4th booster and still catching covid. Pfizer thanks you for your service, cucks/fats.

"I remember hearing this dumbass on a podcast saying he refused to get dental work done because they made him wear a mask in the waiting room. On top of the flat earth shit...clown city I know it's difficult for submissive little gays like you to comprehend men standing up against humiliation. Best lay off the cuck porn man" Yes because a straight, macho, tough guy, grown adult man would feel "humiliated" by being asked to wear a face mask in a medical environment... i cant believe the audacity of these 'submissive little gays'. Especially the fact that they wield the power of 'humiliation' towards these grown adult NON CUCK men.


anonymous 85 days ago

This is Lambgoat red meat. What a f*ing squeak.


anonymous 85 days ago

I too have not had my teeth cleaned in two years because I refuse to wear a mask or bend over to have my temp checked. Uncompromising master race/10


anonymous 85 days ago

lmao what a loser


anonymous 85 days ago

If you are ashamed to be in Deftones it's ok to just say that and that you hate being in that shitty band. We can all understand that! we all hate Deftones too!


anonymous 85 days ago

he dont want to leave because he knows ICE will be waiting for his ass when he comes back


anonymous 85 days ago

If you are ashamed to be in Deftones it's ok to just say that and that you hate being in that shitty band. We can all understand that! we all hate Deftones too! ^ Found the Emmure fan.

noble_hero 85 days ago

That sucks for the fans but at least they aren't canceling the tour.


anonymous 85 days ago

don't blame him after the 2015 debacle overseas. we could not confirm their safety and whereabouts


anonymous 85 days ago

All of you weasel dickswabs condemning the man for not wanting to fly internationally (presumably) because of the technocratic, medical tyranny-imposed regulations set by puppets of the WHO and WEF based on a glorified, gain-of-function cold created in a lab in a communist country, need to slap their muzzles back on their faces, stick another Q-tip up their ass, continue to inject themselves with an ineffective and unproven experimental cocktail and shut the f*ck up already.

You are absolutely crazy as shit. Coming to a no fly list near you sometime soon if not already there. Have fun with your crazy ass dark Maga stuff, you will never be one of us.


anonymous 85 days ago

I heard he's joining a band with John Joseph


anonymous 85 days ago

get vaccinated you trump loving pussy


anonymous 85 days ago

So everyone who paid good money in Europe gets to see Chino, Abe, and then a bunch of nondescript dudes who were like, Manson's 8th guitar player. Sweet - way to really show the fans you care.


anonymous 85 days ago

The country here. Stef, my man, If it means anything, I'm ready for you to leave.


anonymous 85 days ago

Yeah, the dude from Deftones who lives alone and has done nothing but smoke bales of weed and play dumb 11-string guitars for 30 years straight has this entire world and plane of existence figured out. We're all the dumb ones.


anonymous 85 days ago

I don't blame him for not going over there, they have their dates backwards. the covid vaccine is a farce and is worse than the virus it was "trying" to stop. get the damn cold and move on. unless you are 80 you will be fine just getting covid.


anonymous 85 days ago

BASED all y'all would do well to begin adopting this frame of mind. The days of freedom of movement are over. The days of freedom are over. It's time to pick a side or hunker down. If a burned out south Cali nu-metal leftover can understand the paradigm has shifted, what does it mean that you can't? God Bless.


anonymous 85 days ago

i don't blame him. america kicks the ass out of every other country. if you leave, there's no telling if they'll decide there's another covid crisis and the shithole country your in could prevent you from leaving, or that mental deficient Biden could keep you from re-entering. reservoir_dogs_fck_all_that.gif


anonymous 85 days ago

^^^ "your in" look out a dickless bitch posing as an intellectual online


anonymous 85 days ago

Good for him, experimental injections are for dumb cowards that will die young, not worth it.


anonymous 85 days ago

Half of the comments here from REAL MEN are f*cking pathetic. You sad little losers. Your parents did a piss-poor job.

Biden voters should shut up and drive far away.


carveyournamein 85 days ago

In fairness to Deftones, they probably don't want him to go.


anonymous 85 days ago

You are absolutely crazy as shit. Coming to a no fly list near you sometime soon if not already there. Have fun with your crazy ass dark Maga stuff, you will never be one of us. ^^^ don't want to be one of you injected sheep you coward weasel. No wisdom or balls. Enjoy those injections and muzzles! Don't forget to boost.


anonymous 84 days ago

Im with this guy. Do NOT bend the knee to the establishment. I have come to terms I will not be leaving the country any time soon either. f*ck the jab. ^^^ crazy how all of these metal head posters, these supposed counter culture types are absolutely buying this insane narrative that these experimental injections (literal) are good for them, without even apparently questioning a single thing about it. The same counterculture types buying hook line and sinker into a tremendous push by major media corporations and big pharma. Bunch of f*cking sheep. Zero conviction. So intensely foolhardy it's depressing.


anonymous 84 days ago

Who are the deftones?they don't seem like a metal band or like this matters


anonymous 84 days ago

anonymous 84 days ago

" I'm just not ready to leave the country yet " Sounds like an excellent idea. Let the inbred American fools continue to infect their own population, while the rest of the civilized, educated global populous who don't live in their families basements celebrate our fully functioning brains.


anonymous 84 days ago

Rich celeb, never had a real job, fried out of his mind, won't stoop to doing what the pleebs do. You guys are right… total people's champ here.

^MAGATs showing their true racist and genocidal desires


anonymous 84 days ago

Some of these comments give me hope…imagine being stupid enough to let Covid negatively effect your life. I got one month off of work (epic) and then went right back to doing every single thing I had been doing. If you're scared of the cold stay in your house and wear your mask in your car like the little bitch you are and enjoy your sterility from being quadruple boosted


anonymous 84 days ago

Man, libtards are coping hard with the fact that a big percentage of them is going to die in their 40s from heart conditions. Keep obeying, the future does not need weak dna.
