KORN Bassist: 'New Track Is The Most Bangin' Song We've Ever Done'

KORN's contribution to the film "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" is "the most bangin' song KORN's ever put out in our life," bassist Fieldy told MTV.com. "It's headbanging."

The song, "Did My Time", will be featured in the film, but not on the movie's soundtrack.

A video for the track will be shot by Dave Meyers. The song should hit airwaves June 23, and the movie is set for theatrical release on July 25.

KORN have recorded music for all 10 songs on their upcoming album, and frontman Jonathan Davis is currently writing lyrics and recording vocals.

"I was on a trip going around the country writing lyrics and stuff, and now I'm done with that," Davis revealed. "I'll be done probably in a couple weeks."

Regarding the album's musical direction, Davis said, "It's a way big departure from the last album ['Untouchables']," he said. "It's not so overproduced. This one is more pissed off and more raw. Personally, I've been having tough times to dwell on and it inspires me to write tough things."

KORN decided to record the new disc a year after its predecessor because on their last tour they realized their newest songs weren't gelling onstage.

"'Untouchables' was something that we had to do, but a lot of the songs we didn't end up playing live," Davis explained. "Some of them didn't connect, some of them were weird. At one point, we were only playing two or three songs off the album and we went, 'You know what, man? We gotta go back and do the album we want to do.' "

KORN's new album is tentatively slated for release later in the year through Immortal/Epic Records. The band will embark on this year's Ozzfest beginning on June 28 in San Antonio, Texas.
