Contributed by eatdogs, Posted by

Deftones will be releasing a very limited LP to celebrate Record Store Day on April 16, 2011. The vinyl, which will be limited to 5000 copies, will feature the band's covers of songs from The Cure, Drive Like Jehu, The Cars, The Smiths, Lynryd Skynrd, Helmet, Sade, Jawbox and Duran Duran. Some of the songs appeared on 2005's B-Sides & Rarities [CD/DVD] as well as certain digital versions of Diamond Eyes and others. Check out the cover art here.
