KORN Wants Fan Bullying Stories For 'Hater' Video

According to The Pulse Of Radio, KORN is preparing to make a video for the new song "Hater" and wants fans to get involved. The band is asking for people to submit video clips in which they speak about their experiences as victims of bullying, abuse or hatred and how it affected them. Some of the submissions will show up in the finished vide.

The group has posted several questions to address in the clips, as well some general format guidelines.

Among the questions are: "What did the bully, abuser, or hater do? List off the things they said or did."

A second question reads: "How did it make you feel? List off some of the thoughts and feelings going through your head."

Other instructions include items about keeping the videos short, keeping any background noises like TVs or air conditioners off and hiding any logos except KORN's.

Video submissions should be emailed to [email protected]

"Hater" is taken from the deluxe reissue of KORN's 2013 album, "The Paradigm Shift: World Tour Edition" (Prospect Park), which was made available at Best Buy stores in North America starting July 15.

KORN frontman Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio that the track is a direct rebuttal to the kind of person described in the title of the song. "Everybody has a hater," he said. "Everybody has someone that hates on you because you have something they want. And it's really, like, the first empowering song I've ever wrote where it's just blatantly telling you — I mean, the lyrics are: 'You can't bring me down/I've already had my life turned upside down/I ride a downward spiral round and round/But I keep flying, I keep fighting/You'll never bring me down.' That's like the most positive shit I've ever wrote. And it's so different. Everyone that's heard it loves it."

KORN is currently on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival with AVENGED SEVENFOLD. The trek pulls into Atlanta on Tuesday (August 5).
