KORN To Produce Themselves On Upcoming Album

KORN's as-yet-untitled follow-up to "Untouchables" will be a self-produced effort, according to singer Jonathan Davis, who told the Los Angeles Times recently that the change in the group's approach "is really cool. Don't have someone outside coming over to tell us what we need to do. It's the fastest we've ever worked — three weeks and 10 songs. And it's the tightest the band's ever been. We're getting along so great.

"We're at different places in our lives, and the scene we started has started to die off," Davis added. We're not trying to prove anything. We proved ourselves. This is just about making a good album. It's cool what's happening. We opened up a door that all kinds of bands came through and were accepted. But what happened is the record companies over-saturated the market. So it's really exciting to see new stuff going on."

With pre-production and music writing underway for the upcoming album, Davis may hit the road with a couple of friends to look for inspiration for lyrics.

"I'm going to take off on a tour bus and start writing," he said. "I never know what I'll write about until I'm doing it. I like the fact that I'll be on my bus and can go anywhere I want — just going to take off and hopefully write great stuff."

KORN's next CD may surface as early as June to coincide with the group's stint on the Ozzfest tour. In the meantime, Davis is also working on other projects, including having recorded the new TV theme for UPN's "The Twilight Zone", and composing and recording music with composer Richard Gibbs for a DVD "coffee table book," featuring the work of writer-director Clive Barker.
