EPIC RECORDS TO RUSH RELEASE KORN’S ‘TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR’ INTO STORES THIS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21, FOUR DAYS AHEAD OF ITS PLANNED RELEASE DATE, DUE TO INTERNET LEAK;

BAND WANTS FANS TO IMMEDIATELY HEAR ALBUM IN ITS TRUE FORM

The countdown to the release of Korn's new album just got shorter.

Korn’s much-buzzed-about Take a Look in the Mirror album will now arrive in stores Friday, November 21--four days earlier than planned--as it was just discovered the album has been leaked to the Internet by an unknown source. Responding to the situation, Korn asked Epic/Immortal Records to rush release the album into stores this Friday, November 21, ahead of the originally scheduled Tuesday, November 25 release date.

Since the album is on the Internet in poor quality, Korn want their fans to have it as soon as possible in its true form. “When we heard this record was out there, we said, ‘Fuck release dates--our fans want it now!’" said Korn’s Jonathan Davis. “Korn fans have always been rabid when it comes to our music and if they can’t wait, we’re going to work with the label to put it out as fast as we can. We want our fans to hear the album the way it was meant to be heard.” Epic Records is working overtime to speed up the process to ensure that Take a Look in the Mirror will be in stores Friday, the same day Korn headline a sold-out concert at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

This marks only the second time a rock band has changed its release date due to an Internet leak--Metallica also moved the release of their St. Anger album earlier this year. This isn’t the first time Korn music has found its way to the Internet ahead of its release date. Unfinished versions of tracks from the band’s previous album Untouchables were leaked online months before its release.

Take a Look in the Mirror--the band’s first self-produced record--comes as a special edition in deluxe packaging, featuring an expanded CD booklet, with early archival photos from the band’s personal collection, and extensive liner notes. The CD also contains a bonus track of Korn’s live performance of “One,” from their appearance at the MTV Icon event honoring Metallica earlier this year. Additionally, a special Take a Look in the Mirror digipak comes with a bonus DVD containing a mix of all Korn’s videos, including an exclusive video for "Right Now" you won't see anywhere else.

Take a Look in the Mirror comes on the heels of Korn’s acclaimed and riveting Ozzfest performances as well their in-progress “Back 2 Basics Tour” which launched November 10 in Las Vegas and wraps November 28 in Toronto. Of the group’s Los Angeles performance, Steve Appleford observed in the Los Angeles Times (11/13) “…the Wiltern was hardly able to contain the band's fiery storm of shouting, throbbing, riffing, confusion and self-loathing.” Korn also received early critical acclaim for the new record in the Korn Guitar World December cover story. Writer Rich Bienstock noted: “Take A Look In The Mirror is streamlined and straightforward…Davis is in prime scream mode throughout…behind him Munky and Head’s loping seven-string guitar riffs lock in with the rhythm section to produce a colossal wall of sound.”

Korn’s current radio track “Right Now” is climbing the rock charts and follows the album’s “Did My Time” single which appeared in the film Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life. The band teamed with actress Angelina Jolie (Lara Croft) for the “Did My Time” video.

Korn have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and have received widespread critical acclaim for their music. The band--Jonathan, Munky, Head, Fieldy and David--has redefined the parameters of heavy music, revolutionizing the genre by matching unsettling guitar textures and volcanic rhythms with jagged, introspective lyrics and intense vocal stylings. “Here To Stay,” from the band’s previous Untouchables album, earned Korn a Grammy for “Best Metal Performance” in 2003. This marked their second Grammy; the first was for Best Short Form Music Video (for “Freak On A Leash”) in 1999.
