KORN have pushed up the release date of their "Take a Look in the Mirror" CD due to an online leak, according to MTV.com.
The band's sixth album will now drop on Friday, November 21 instead of Tuesday, November 25.
"We really wanted to put it out [early] because we want the kids to hear it the right way," frontman Jonathan Davis said. "Because when you get the album on the Internet, it's all screwed up. We produced it ourselves and we want them to hear it the way that we did it."
Davis said the decision to bump up the release was made late last week after the webmaster for www.korn.com noticed songs "Break Some Off", "Deep Inside", "Ya'll Want a Single" and "Right Now" online.
"From our end it was cool, but once it goes out to the plant ... When you make a million records, you have boxes of them lying around, and I'm sure someone just picked one up and took it," Davis said.
"The hardcore people might buy the album anyway," he added, "but if people could get it for free, they'll get it. Why would they go out and buy it? They don't care about the artwork. I think kids who are downloading music are basically killing our industry."
