Korn Laying Off Korn-TV To Work On Album, Label

Harbingers of mayhem Korn are taking a little time away from their Korn-TV Internet broadcasts, but it doesn't mean the band is slacking off.

This Thursday will mark the band's last live Net broadcast for a while as Korn is turning its attention to its third album, which for now is titled "Follow The Leader." In the coming weeks, the series (which so far has featured appearances by special guest stars like Fred "Re-Run" Berry of "What's Happening," porn titan Ron Jeremy, "Loveline's" Adam Corolla as well as members of 311, Deftones, Sugar Ray, and Pharcyde) will offer reruns during its usual time slot (Thursdays at 4:30 p.m. Pacific time at www.korntv.com).

The band hopes to mount the grand finale of Korn-TV's first season closer to the release date of "Follow The Leader," which should arrive in late July or early August.

During the brief hiatus, the band will finish up its next album, and will also

firm up its upcoming tour plans, which include the inaugural outing of the group's Family Values tour. As we previously reported (see "Korn-Fed Family Values Fest To Hit The Road"), the band will be joined on that tour by Limp Bizkit and Orgy (the first signing to Korn's Elementree record label).

At least a bit of Korn's attention is consumed by Elementree as well, which recently inked a distribution deal with Reprise Records. The first offering from Elementree will come from Orgy, and should arrive this July.

The band may find it hard to leave the world of live cyber-entertainment. Its been a successful seven-week run for Korn's landmark Internet undertaking, as thousands of users have tapped into the band's shows. The band plans to launch the second season of Korn-TV when its tour kicks off later this year.
