MTV.com is reporting that KORN's one-off gig at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom on November 29 will be taped for a half-hour special on MTV2 airing December 3 at 9:30 p.m. and December 6 at 10:30 a.m. KORN will also be hosting MTV2's "T-Minus Rock Countdown" December 6 at 11 a.m., and the Hammerstein show will be available online via MTV Overdrive in early December.
KORN frontman Jonathan Davis told MTV.com that the band will embark on a full-scale, two-month U.S. headlining run toward the end of February; an itinerary is still being confirmed, he said. "The cities we don't hit, we'll hit when we come back this summer" as part of a second U.S. trek, the frontman promised. "It'll be a world tour — we'll start in the States, go overseas to Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia. We're hitting the whole world."
Virgin will release two versions of the group's new album, "See You on the Other Side", including a deluxe edition featuring a bonus disc of five tracks: "It's Me Again", "Eaten Up Inside", "Last Legal Drug (Le Petit Mort)" and two "Twisted Transistor" remixes. The disc will also include live footage shot during a KORN show in Russia.
Davis said he and the rest of KORN are especially proud of "See You"'s art, which features a weeping child clutching a headless teddy bear.
"It was done by a friend of mine named David Stoupakis. He's a local artist here in New York and I first saw his artwork at the CBGB gallery, when we did that free show there," Davis said. "I gave him this lyric from one of the songs ['Seen It All'] ... 'I'm just a child with a tear in his eyes/ And I'm holding this gift that is broken.' And I go, 'Paint that.' And he came up with [the cover], and it really blew everybody away."
"See you on the Other Side" is due out on December 6. Prior to the album's release, KORN will perform "Freak" and their new single, "Twisted Transistor", on "Saturday Night Live" on November 19.
