Korn Guitarist Discusses New Band


Korn (2008) KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer has issued the following update:

"Let me start by saying I am not leaving KORN. I started this project because I want to express myself musically and show the world a different side of me, creatively.I want to thank all the fans that are willing to take a listen and choose for themselves.

"Right now I have 13 tracks done and I am currently working on the vocals. It is a challenge for me but I love it and my heart is in to it.

"I am sorry to say that FEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM will not be coming out on August 8, 2008. I don't want to rush this project and I want it to be the best it can be so please be patient and I won't let you down.

"Just to let everyone know, Wes Borland [BLACK LIGHT BURNS, ex-LIMP BIZKIT] will not be featured on the album. I love and respect Wes Borland and we have worked together but his priority is with BLACK LIGHT BURNS which I love and wish everyone would take the time to listen to. Wes has inspired me to express myself like he has but since we only had a limited time to work together. The tracks that he played on did not make the cut for the record. However, he is still involved in this project he painted the amazing cover art and I can't wait for everyone to see it."
