KORN have commenced work on their new studio album with producer Dallas Austin, who has previously worked with TLC, MADONNA and MICHAEL JACKSON, among others. "The writing is going really good, we have wrote [sic] at least five songs already," KORN frontman Jonathan Davis said in a Jan. 28 online posting. "It's really tight, heavy, headbangin' shit.
"We are now working with Dallas Austin, he is one bad-ass producer — one of the best we have ever worked with. We are doin' some crazy, heavy, trippy shit with him.
"This album is gonna be slammin'.
KORN's last release, "Greatest Hits, Vol. 1" (Immortal/Epic),featuring highlights from the first 10 years of the band's recording career, was certified gold in December by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of 500,000 copies.
In addition to KORN's biggest songs, "Greatest Hits" also includes two brand-new covers — a remake of CAMEO's "Word Up" and a medley of PINK FLOYD's "Another Brick In The Wall, Parts 1, 2, & 3".
KORN are also planning on releasing a live DVD featuring footage mainly from last summer's Projekt Revolution Tour.
