Korn To Mix Animation And Live Footage For New Video

As Korn prepares to wind down its post-Family Values tour with a concert at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium on Friday, the band is getting ready to film its long-awaited second video.

Korn will be shooting the clip for its next single, “Freak on a Leash,” on December 13 and 14 in Los Angeles with “Spawn” creator Todd McFarlane, along with the directorial team of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.

Plans currently call for the video to be a mixture of animation and live performance footage, a move which harkens back to McFarlane’s lastvideo credit, as he helmed the fully-animated video for Pearl Jam’s “Do the Evolution.” The renowned comic-book artist also created the cover art for Korn’s current album, “Follow the Leader.”

The directing duo of Dayton and Faris have won more than their fair share of Video Music Awards for their work, which includes videos for the Smashing Pumpkins, Scott Weiland and Neil Finn.

Korn’s video for “Freak on a Leash” is expected to start airing
on MTV in late January.
