Korn's Head To Organize Christian Rock Festival In Light Of New Found Faith In God

Metalunderground.com can now confirm that recently departed Korn guitarist, Head, has been hard at work as of late. He is planning a summer-time three day festival that is going to be dubbed HEAVENFEST. The event will take place in an unknown venue in Salt Lake City, Utah. A few names have been tossed around and said to have been confirmed for the festival such as: Zao, Living Sacrifice, As I Lay Dying, Believer, and there is a talk about a possible Stryper one-time only reunion show! The event is said to be taking place during the month of August. Also, the festival is going to be sponsored by Peta and Greenpeace. There'll also be a chapel so anyone who attends the festival and would like to pray while rockin' out can do so. Tickets are said to go on sale sometime in June, as soon as the venue is confirmed along with a few other loose ends that need to be tied down.

Well Living Sacrifice are still "around" - just not actively touring/playing. They just put out a best-of CD with 3 new songs that kicks major ass.

Not only that, but Believer has been broken up for years and Stryper already did a reunion tour two years ago.

No, Rocky Gray is playing with Evanescence right now. I know about the "best of" set, but I think that was set out by their label, not them.
