KORN is asking fans to help pick the next single from the band's recently released, untitled eighth studio effort. A post at the official KORN web site reads, "Now that the album is out, KORN wants YOUR input on which song you like more...VOTE NOW on the message boards for your favorite of these three tracks!" The songs listed are "Innocent Bystander", "Bitch We Have A Problem" and "Hold On".

Singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse of Radio that "Hold On" is an especially personal track for him and was one of several inspired by the blood infection that nearly killed him last year. "'Hold On''s another one about the blood thing," he said. "It was like a song of empowerment. It's for people out there dealing with any kind of disease or f***ed-up relationship or anything. It's about just hanging in there. I wanted to write a song that people could listen to it and it would give 'em hope."

KORN's latest album arrived on July 31 and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart.

KORN will head out on a fall North American tour with HELLYEAH, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and DROID, which begins on September 22 in Reno, Nevada.
