Korn play gig in the middle of a crop circle

Nu-metal band to stream Bakersfield performance online

Korn are set to stream a gig they recently played in a crop circle.

The band commissioned crop circle creators Circlemakers.org to make a crop circle near their hometown of Bakersfield in the US. They will stream the performance they recorded on their MySpace page, Myspace.com/korn, on July 12.

“The setting and the mood took us into a totally new direction musically,” frontman Jonathan Davis said. “We took the opportunity to stretch out and experiment with the performance. I don’t think we’ll ever be the same.”

He added: “We spent a lot of time fooling around in the wheatfields and cornfields surrounding Bako when we were kids, and it gets pretty spooky out there at night. That’s where we got the inspiration for the whole thing, so we decided to have some fun with the viral videos.”

Guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer added: “I felt like we were on some new frontier musically for Korn. This is definitely going to add a new dimension to our live shows.”

The band had recently been releasing viral crop circle videos online. Watch one below now:
