Korn’s James “Munky” Shaffer Unveils New Digital Duo Venera

Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer has joined forces with composer/filmmaker Chris Hunt to type a brand new digital outfit named Venera. The duo has introduced its self-titled debut album, together with releasing the one “Hologram” that includes Rizz from the band VOWWS.

Venera’s debut LP will arrive on October thirteenth through Ipecac Recordings. “Hologram” really follows lead single “Swarm,” which was quietly and mysteriously launched final month.

As for the brand new tune, Shaffer and Hunt state, “’Hologram’ emerged shortly from our first session collectively. A virtually unchanging drum machine sample nested in warbling guitars. We don’t work together a lot with holograms however they appear to supply a picture of an alluring vacancy and light-weight, which resonates effectively with the universe we’re pushed to discover.”

Along with VOWWS’ Rizz, the album options visitor drumming from Deantoni Parks (Mars Volta, John Cale), and vocal contributions from Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Eleven) and HEALTH’s Jacob Duzsik.
