KORN: New Song Posted Online

April 27, 2007

A brand new KORN song, entitled "I Will Protect You", has been posted on the group's MySpace page. The track is expected to appear on the band's as-yet-untitled eighth studio album, due on July 24. "We mixed it last night and we are really excited about this album," vocalist Jonathan Davis wrote in an online posting. "The label will probably get pissed, but fuck it."

Although famed drummer Terry Bozzio worked on much of the record, KORN announced earlier this month that he would not be joining the band on tour. Original KORN drummer David Silveria is taking a hiatus.

The schedule for this summer's Family Values Tour, co-headlined by KORN and EVANESCENCE, has been announced. The 30-city tour will begin on July 20 in Missouri, ending in early September in California. The lineup also includes FLYLEAF, HELLYEAH, ATREYU, TRIVIUM, NEUROSONIC and DROID. KORN has also revealed that SLIPKNOT's Joey Jordison will be the band's guest drummer for both Family Values and this summer's European festival shows. Jordison said, "I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to perform with bands that have influenced me as a musician over the years. When I first heard KORN they blew me away and I've been a fan ever since. I'm looking forward to playing drums with these guys for the next five months!"
