Former SEVENDUST/current DARK NEW DAY guitarist Clint Lowery has commented on his decision to replace Rob Patterson as KORN's new touring/backup axeman.

Lowery is the second replacement for original KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch, who left the band two years ago to devote his life to Christianity.

Lowery made his debut with KORN last Thursday (March 1) when the band made its first appearance ever on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno".

Said Lowery: "As some of you know I appeared with KORN on the 'Jay Leno' show.

"Anyway, I got a call from Munky [KORN guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer] back in January asking if I would be interested in touring with them this year.

"First off, I've been a huge fan of his and the rest of those guys for along time and to be asked to be involved with them in any capacity is a huge honor. I will be touring with them this year but the new DARK NEW DAY record will be completed before I leave out with the KORN camp. My band has been very supportive about this and I love them for that.

"DARK NEW DAY will be recording over the next few months and it's gonna be a great record.

"I am very excited about sharing the stage with KORN. Their live show is crazy and I look forward to trying my best to add to what already is an amazing show.

"So to all you musicians that come from nothing always remember that it doesn't matter where your from anythings possible 'cause I'm from the middle of nowhere and I thank God every day for the chance to play along side of some great musicians (DARK NEW DAY, SEVENDUST, KORN). Cinderella story for sure. Again, please know that DARK NEW DAY's still on track and please come support the KORN shows I'm thankful to play."

DARK NEW DAY released its debut album, "Twelve Year Silence", in June of 2005. The disc featured the single "Brother".

In addition to Clint and Corey Lowery, who played in SEVENDUST and STEREOMUD respectively, the group features former members of DOUBLEDRIVE, SKRAPE and CREED.

I'm glad he's in Dark New Day and Korn, but not in Sevendust. Dark New Day seems to be a less heavy rip-off of a lot of Sevendust material, and Korn hasn't put out a good disc since "Peachy" Sevendust has gone back to the heavier stuff since he left, and "Alpha" is the best dust album since the debut.

Korn has a minimum of talent, but it doesn't justify the fact that their music is sh**.
