Launch Radio Networks reports: KORN unveiled its new single, "Evolution", on rock stations around the country over the weekend and debuted it live at a Los Angeles radio festival on Saturday (May 19). But guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer told Launch that he's not sure when fans will get to hear more new songs live before the album hits shelves on July 31. "At this time, we are just gonna do the one, just the first single, and then we're going to probably do some more new songs, but we just, we have to kind of figure out which ones," he said.

KORN recently posted another new song at its MySpace page, called "I Will Protect You".

The band has not yet finalized a title for its eighth album, which will follow up 2005's "See You on the Other Side".

KORN will co-headline this summer's Family Values Tour with EVANESCENCE beginning on July 20 in St. Louis.

you guys are morons, Otep is good, not there fault you don't lik music with real lyrics...
anyways Korn will never be good again since they refuse to "rehash" their previous sounds, they need to go back to Issues and Peachy since those are their best albums, but whatever i won't buy this album or even listen to it just like with their last one...

Haven't you heard Freak on a Leash featuring Amy Lee? It sucks. Korns no good at slower songs. He's no good at singing slow sounds. He needs to stick to what he does best. Evanessence is an emo band anyways so why the hell do you care?

Yeah, Jonathan Davis should just stick to getting ass-molested and Amy Lee can just stick to kicking her band members out every three months. They should tour together because they're both lonely boring pieces of shxt that fail to entertain, even within their stunningly mediocre genres.

Oh, and I'd like to hear which Otep lyric is "real". The one about being possessed? Or the one about about being a messiah? The realest thing about Otep is that she's stale and boring and she is the perfect face for mainstream metal today. Overlooked, underpromoted, and labelless. That'll teach the b1tch to jump on the corporate bandwagon. I hope she suffocates to death on her own shxt.

I dunno. You gotta admit that Korn did do some good sh**. Korn at least HAD talent. They're getting old, you can't blame em for that.

She can't help what? Being a mental over controlling b****? Writing absolutely crap music? Making that crap music even worse by making half the songs sound the same? Help me out here.
