KORN Management Confirms Drummer Exit

Launch Radio Networks reports: KORN's management has confirmed that temporary drummer Terry Bozzio has completed his work on the band's new record and is no longer working with the group. Bozzio, a legendary drummer known for his work with MISSING PERSONS and Frank Zappa, plays on some but not all tracks on the album. Bozzio will also not be joining KORN on the road, with a new touring drummer yet to be announced. Brooks Wackerman of BAD RELIGION played with the band two weeks ago at a youth volunteer show in Los Angeles, but is not expected to tour with them.

Bozzio replaced founding drummer David Silveria in January, after Silveriaannounced at the end of 2006 that he was taking a "hiatus" from KORN for at least one album and tour.

KORN's eighth studio effort is due out in June. The band will headline the 2007 Family Values tour starting in mid-July, with EVANESCENCE, HELLYEAH, ATREYU, TRIVIUM and FLYLEAF also on the bill. The on-sale date for most of the shows is April 28.
