One of the longest-running showcases at Austin's annual South by Southwest Festival will be especially eclectic this year: alt-metal genre-pushers Deftones and Scottish electronic pop outfit Chvrches have been revealed as headliners for SPIN's showcase at Stubb's.

The event, presented by Harley-Davidson and Bud Light, takes place from 11AM to 5PM on Friday, March 18. The full lineup will be announced in the coming weeks.

Deftones will be in support of their upcoming eighth album, GORE, set for release April 8. It'll be the first full-length from the Sacramento band since 2012's Koi No Yokan.

Chvrches released their sophomore album, Every Open Eye, last fall. They'll be the first band to play SPIN's party twice – they performed as a developing artist in 2013.
