KORN fans around the world will be able to hear the entire ground-breaking new studio album from the band exclusively on MySpace websites around the world a week before the album is in stores.

Virgin Records will release the eighth studio release from the multi-platinum, award-winning hard rock band globally on July 30.

But the worldwide KoRn MySpace listening event starts on July 24 and runs until the album is available in-stores and online on the 30th.

“This is an album that we’re really proud of and we really wanted the fans to have a chance to hear it first,” explained KoRn singer Jonathan Davis.

There will be front page placement on all International MySpace homepages announcing that fans can hear the full new KoRn album before it is available in-stores.

Fans will be able to access information to the event on the front page of all International MySpace sites announcing that they can hear the full Korn album before anyone else and before its available in stores.

James “Munky” Shaffer added: “Wow, our fans love MySpace, and we’re stoked that so many people will have the chance to hear the album before its out.”

KoRn competition

Fans also have a chance to win the ULTIMATE KORN FAN prize – backstage passes and lifetime tickets to any KoRn show in the world!

The MySpace sites running this promotion are: UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Canada.

KoRn’s brand new untitled album was produced by Korn’s See You On The Other Side producer Atticus Ross (NIN) and features the first single Evolution which is currently a Top 10 rock track in the USA.

Evolution is also out now in the UK on limited edition white vinyl 7” and CD and download. The CD features exclusive Dave Aude remix of Evolution.

In releasing an album with no title, Jonathan says: “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?”
