Korn Frontman Shoots Videodrone Clip; Family Values CD/Video On Way

These are busy days for Korn’s Jonathan Davis.

As he and his Korn-mates prepare to launch a U.S. tour next month in Florida, the singer also recently shot an appearance in a new video from Videodrone.

Davis will be spotted trading vocals with Videodrone singer Ty Elam in the clip for “Ty Jonathan Down” when the video surfaces next month.

The band’s time with Korn goes back to the infancy of both acts in Bakersfield, California, and Davis even credits Elam with teaching him to sing. After attaining major label success, Korn did its old pals a solid by inking Videodrone to its Elementree Records label, which released Videodrone’s debut last year. The bands also did time together on Korn’s “Rock Is Dead” tour, which also featured Rob Zombie.

As we reported earlier on Tuesday, Davis has also made plans to enter the studio with Snot’s John “Tumor” Fahnestock and Mikey Doling on Tuesday night to record a track for “Strait Up,” the upcoming tribute album to late Snot
singer Lynn Strait (see “Korn’s Davis, Limp’s Durst, Others Line Up Studio Time For Snot Tribute”).

Meanwhile, plans are already moving ahead for this year’s incarnation of Korn’s brainchild, the Family Values tour. As we reported last year, a live CD and home video commemorating last year’s successful trek are on the way as well (see “Fred Durst Promises ‘Something Special’ On Family Values Live Set” ), and Interscope Records plans to deliver the offering this spring.

Speaking about the CD and video last fall, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst (whose band headlined last year’s Family Values outing) promised a fresh approach, saying, “It’s a different world today, and traditional things have been played out and really burnt down. I think you’ve got to go the extra mile and do something special for everybody, and I’m still trying to figure that one out.”
