KORN is planning to shoot a video for its next single, called "Politics", but singer Jonathan Davis told MTV.com that fans shouldn't actually expect to see the group get political in the clip. Davis explained, "(The song is) just about how I don't like to talk about politics. I mean there's politics in everything, and it's not necessarily governmental politics. There's who's going to sleep with whom to get ahead, who's going to do this to get that...That's what I'm talking about, not about the stupid crap that's going on with guys in suits and their views and their lobbies."
Davis said that while KORN has never been a "political band," he does have his views on certain issues. "I'm political to a point where it affects human life, from global warming to abortion issues to my gun rights, stuff like that," he explained. "Those are the kind of politics that I care about."
However, KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer told Launch that he and Davis are writing the score for an animated short film that does tackle national politics. "It's very political, probably the most politically involved plot that Jonathan and I will ever be involved in to this point," he said. "It's about oil and the president and aliens and futuristic, really cool...like, a chick superhero that's gonna save the world type of thing."
Davis has been home in Los Angeles recovering from a rare and potentially fatal blood disorder that forced KORN to cancel most of a European tour last month.
KORN will begin its headlining stint on the Family Values tour on July 27 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, with DEFTONES, 10 YEARS, FLYLEAF and others.
