Last year, Korn’s James “Munky” Shaffer announced a side project featuring  Billy Gould (Faith No More) on bass, Brooks Wackerman (Bad Religion, Tenacious D) on drums and percussion, Leopold Ross on programming and guitars, Zach Baird on keyboards and programming, and himself on vocals and guitar. A definite all-star lineup.

The release date was set for August. Now, here it is May of 09 and still no sign of Fear and the Nervous System.

Out of nowhere in an interview with, Munky mentions the side project.

UW: Is that still going to be released?

M: Yeah, I’m still working on it. It’s like three quarters done. The music sounds great. I’m really happy with it.

I sure hope so. The lineup makes it look very interesting. The album will be produced by Shaffer, Ross, and Jim Monti, with additional production by Tim Harkins, Leopold Ross and Danny Lohner (NIN). I’d imagine it would sound like a pretty great industrial rock. I hope it’s released before the end of the year.
