James “Munky” Shaffer Announces Solo Project
Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer has announced plans to release a new project entitled Fear and the Nervous System, due out August 8, 2008. The record will be released on his own label, Emotional Syphon Recordings.
The band features James Christian Shaffer (“Munky”) on guitars and vocals; Billy Gould (Faith No More), bass; Wes Borland (Black Light Burns), guitars; Brooks Wackerman (Bad Religion, Tenacious D), drums and percussion; Leopold Ross, programming and guitars; Zach Baird, keyboards and programming. The album will be produced by Shaffer, Ross and Jim Monti, with additional production by Tim Harkins, Leopold Ross and Danny Lohner (NIN).
Famed producer Ross Robinson (Slipknot, Korn) comments: “What can I do to ever come close to feeling James’ level of pure ruthless courage through a guitar? Since I’ve worked with him, I've tried to inspire, convince, beg, bleed, cry, prod and nearly die, hoping to hit that bar with others. I'm grateful to know what ‘it’ is, and where it always exists—in my brother, James. His solo band? Yes, please!”
