KORN Guitarist's FEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM: 21-Minute Documentary Posted Online

A 21-minute documentary on the making of the self-titled debut album from FEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM, the heavy and hypnotic new project from Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer, can be seen below.

FEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM will embark on its first tour beginning October 13 at Brixton South Bay in Redondo Beach, California.

This special jaunt will see the group perform four intimate West Coast shows, introducing the world to songs from their self-titled debut on stage. Expect a jarring and hyper-energetic performance from one of modern rock’s most celebrated guitar players. The album is available in stores and via digital retailers now through INgrooves/Fontana.

About the tour, Shaffer excitedly comments, "I've had these songs for quite a while, and I can't wait to share them with the world live. FEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM is unlike anything that I've ever done, and it's an incredible feeling to finally tour behind it."

This collective of musicians on the album handpicked by Shaffer includes FAITH NO MORE bassist Billy Gould, BAD RELIGION drummer Brooks Wackerman, REPEATER singer Steve Krolikowski, KORN touring keyboardist Zac Baird, and Leopold Ross on guitar. Tracked and mixed by Jim "Bud" Monti, the record encompasses a calculated metallic darkness wrapped in a haze of dark, dreamy industrial soundscapes. It's the ultimate sonic headtrip from some of hard rock and heavy metal's most daring musicians.

As a founding member of KORN, James "Munky" Shaffer has won two Grammy Awards and sold over 35 million albums worldwide. However, this is his very first solo effort.

Oct. 13 - Redondo Beach, CA - Brixton
