In other news, KORN frontman Jonathan Davis will appear on KNAC.COM with host Philthy Phil on Friday, February 2 at noon PST.
KORN's video for the "unplugged" version of "Freak on a Leash", featuring a guest appearance by Amy Lee of EVANESCENCE, has been posted online at YouTube.com. The track comes off KORN's "MTV Unplugged" CD, which has had its release date pushed back to March 6 from the previously announced February 20. The performance, which was recorded December 9, 2006 at MTV's Times Square (New York City) studios, includes an additional guest appearance from Robert Smith of THE CURE on a cover of the CURE classic "In Between Days". The album version of the performance will also include KORN's cover of "Creep" by RADIOHEAD. The full "Unplugged" performance will air beginning February 24.
KORN is currently working with veteran rock drummer Terry Bozzio on its eighth studio album. The 56-year-old Bozzio is sitting in for KORN drummer David Silveria, who announced in December that he was taking a "temporary hiatus" from the group for at least one studio album and tour. Bozzio, long considered one of the greatest drummers in rock, is best known for his work with MISSING PERSONS and FRANK ZAPPA. He also worked with KORN vocalist Jonathan Davis on music for the soundtrack of the film "Queen of the Damned".
Silveria has reportedly taken time off to manage his two California restaurants, Tuna Town and Silvera's Steakhouse & Lounge, plus spend "quality time" with his family.
KORN leads the list of bands appearing on the "Family Values Tour 2006" CD and DVD, which arrived in stores late last month.
KORN expects to release its new album later this year.
