KORN's MUNKY & Composer CHRIS HUNT Have A New Band Called VENERA

Their first song has Vowws on it, and it's real catchy.

Venera is the new band featuring Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and composer and filmmaker Chris Hunt. The duo is now streaming their debut single "Hologram" featuring Vowws, and man is it catchy.

"'Hologram' emerged quickly from our first session together," said Shaffer and Hunt in a joint statement. "A nearly unchanging drum machine pattern nested in warbling guitars. We don't interact much with holograms but they seem to offer an image of an alluring emptiness and light, which resonates well with the universe we are driven to explore."

Venera will release their self-titled debut album on October 13 via Ipecac Recordings. The album features additional guests drummer Deantoni Parks (The Mars Volta, John Cale) on "Erosion" and "Disintegration," Health's Jacob Duzsik on "Ochre" and Alain Johannes on "Triangle". Pre-orders are available here.
