Watch Employed To Serve, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Etc. Members Cover Deftones’ “Elite”

Last month, Justine Jones (Employed To Serve), Sammy Urwin (Employed To Serve), Billy Rymer (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Kevin Antreassian (The Dillinger Escape Plan), and DJ Scully (The Number Twelve Looks Like You) performed a quarantine cover of Deftones’ “Elite” as part of Metal Injection‘s “Slay At Home” event. You can see footage of that below:

In related news, Jones also recently discussed her love for Deftones’ “White Pony” with Revolver:

“This album is one of my favorites for all-night tour drives and was a big part of me transitioning from teenager to adult. The Deftones catalog in general grows with the fan — there’s an album for every mood. White Pony‘s lyrics are amazing as Chino [Moreno]’s lyrics come across more like dialogue between fictional characters rather than things he’s going through in his life, which was the first I’d noticed a vocalist doing that at the time.”

She also added the following about covering “Elite”:

“It’s one of my favorite Deftones songs that I’ve always wanted to cover. The lyrics are perfect for social media culture right now — despite it being released in 2000! We kept it more or less the same because the song is perfect in my eyes.”
