After touring with last year's disappointing Lollapalooza, Southern California Heavies Korn have decided to launch "Family Values," their very own traveling festival. No headliners are yet confirmed for the inaugural run this summer, but Korn's wish list includes the Deftones, Limp Bizkit, and Helmet. "We're going to cash in on the hard music major-label execs think doesn't sell," says vocalist Jonathan Davis, adding that Korn recently started a hard-rock record label named Elementree. But the band is most concerned with finishing their third album, which is set for a spring release. "It's groovier and harder and I sing a lot more," says Davis "We're now in a position to make something we're really proud of."
