Curious about the new Korn album, Korn III: Remember Who You Are, sounds like? Until July 13, Crave Online is exclusively streaming the entire album, when the album is officially released for purchase.
Need some convincing the new album is worth listening too? I recommend reading the album review at The New Review, the author gave the new album a 5 out of 5 rating. After listening to the first few tracks while writing this, can’t say I disagree.
In addition to making headlines with the release of the new album, Korn started a groundswell by announcing they are boycotting all BP products during the band’s tour this summer. Other artists have responded by supporting the boycott as a result of the man-made disaster in the Gulf Coast. Although the issue regarding a boycott is complex, as we reported here, the tragedy continues to worsen with no end in sight. Over the weekend, tar balls hit every states along the gulf coast as well as Lake Pontchartrain, which is north of New Orleans. More information available at Discover.
Jared Leto from 30 Seconds to Mars had this say:
“As someone born in Louisiana, this hits close to home. It is an already fragile ecosystem hit by this terrible and senseless tragedy of unprecedented proportions; it is heartbreaking that this has happened. As people work to find solutions to help deal with this catastrophe hopefully there will be new measures put in place to address the dangers of our complete and total reliance on fossil fuels.”
