THE eighth studio album from the multi-platinum, award-winning hard rock band Korn is to be released on July 30, according to Virgin Records.

The untitled album was produced by Korn’s See You On The Other Side producer Atticus Ross (also known for his revolutionary work with Nine Inch Nails).

In releasing an album with no title singer Jonathan Davis commented: “We didn’t want to label this album. It has no boundaries; it has no limits and why not just let our fans call it whatever they wanna call it?”

Los Angeles modern rock radio station KROQ recently gave Evolution – the album’s first single – its world premiere and the band gave its 550,000+ friends on myspace the opportunity to hear it for themselves at www.myspace.com/korn

Commenting on the new single, Davis added: “Evolution is about us as a human race. We have not evolved since monkeys.

“Animals and humans are pretty much the same. Look at this war we’re fighting; we’re the bullies – same shit in the monkey world.”

To hear and see the behind-the-scenes making of Evolution, fans can log onto www.korn.com

The latest album follows the band’s ground breaking MTV Unplugged: KORN release, which debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 in March 2007 and will be previewed on the band’s upcoming run on the Family Values Tour in America.

The full track listing for Korn’s new album will be announced at a later date.
