    NEW YORK, July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Corn Field in Times Square -- Korn
 announced today that they will be joining the effort to tour green by
 fueling all their vehicles with bio-diesel. This effort will lessen their
 environmental impact on this year's Family Values Tour by using
 domestically produced bio-fuels in all 16 of their touring vehicles. The
 band is working with Music Matters' SMART (Sustainable Minded Artists
 Recording Touring) program and Conserv Fuel to fuel their vehicles with
 domestically produced bio-fuel which can be derived from a variety of plant
 based matter including; soy, corn, and various other vegetable and animal
 oils. Korn is using bio- diesel for their biofuel needs which will reduce
 the CO2 emissions that tour produces by almost 50 tons. "We can't save the
 planet overnight but this is our way of saying everyone has to start
 somewhere. As a touring band it's our responsibility to start making a
 difference. We encourage all other bands touring this summer to do the
 same," said Jonathan Davis.
     In an effort to get the word out about alternative fuels, Korn will be
 launching their own brand of bio-fuel. The soon to be officially revealed
 recipe will be called Korntastic and more information will be available at
 http://www.korntastic.com.
     In another Korn first, soldiers on leave will be invited as Korn's
 guests to the Family Values Tour all over the country. In a partnership
 with the USO World Headquarters, tickets will be given free of charge to
 soldiers on leave in each local stop of this year's Family Values Tour.
 Distribution will be handled by the USO World Headquarters in conjunction
 with local bases.
     Korn's eighth studio album will be released by Virgin Records on
 Tuesday, July 31st. The untitled album features the hit single,
 "Evolution". In celebration of the release, Korn will play a free show for
 fans at the South Street Seaport's Pier 17 at 6pm. The event which is
 sponsored by J&R Music and Computer World will be free to fans and will be
 followed by a signing event back at the J&R store on 23 Park Row. Fans
 outside the NYC area can catch the event streamed live on the band's
 MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/korn.

 Filter, The Crystal Method, Primus, Staind, Mobb Deep, Ja Rule, and Method

 bands."
