Fan-filmed footage of bFEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM, the heavy and hypnotic new project from Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum KORN guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer, performing live on October 19 at B Ryder’s in Bakersfield, California can be seen below.
FEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM‘s first-ever tour kicked off on October 13 in Redondo Beach, California and wrapped on October 21 in West Hollywood.
This special jaunt saw the group perform four intimate West Coast shows, introducing the world to songs from their self-titled debut on stage. The album is available in stores and via digital retailers now through INgrooves/Fontana.
About the tour, Shaffer excitedly commented, “FEAR AND THE NERVOUS SYSTEM is unlike anything that I’ve ever done, and it’s an incredible feeling to finally tour behind it.”
This collective of musicians on the album handpicked by Shaffer includes FAITH NO MORE bassist Billy Gould, BAD RELIGION drummer Brooks Wackerman, REPEATER singer Steve Krolikowski, KORN touring keyboardist Zac Baird, and Leopold Ross on guitar. Tracked and mixed by Jim “Bud” Monti, the record encompasses a calculated metallic darkness wrapped in a haze of dark, dreamy industrial soundscapes. It’s the ultimate sonic headtrip from some of hard rock and heavy metal’s most daring musicians.
As a founding member of KORN, James “Munky” Shaffer has won two Grammy Awards and sold over 35 million albums worldwide. However, this is his very first solo effort.
