Korn Get Big Hollywood Guns For 'Here To Stay' Video


It looks like Korn are determined to take no prisoners for their next video, considering they've hired Albert and Allen Hughes to direct the clip for "Here to Stay," the first single from their next album, Untouchables, due May 14.

The Hughes Brothers wrote and directed the gangbusters Hollywood shoot-'em-up "Dead Presidents" (1995) and the classic "Menace II Society" (1993). The duo also directed the 2001 Jack the Ripper flick "From Hell" and the 1999 documentary "American Pimp."

While the Brothers have directed videos for the likes of Too Short and KRS-One, "Here to Stay" is the pair's first rock video. Korn asked to work with the duo because they are all huge fans of their oeuvre, especially "Menace II Society."

The videos for "Somebody Someone" and "Make Me Bad" from Korn's 1999 album, Issues, were both directed by Martin Weisz (Filter, Live), and the clip for "Falling Away From Me" was shot by Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst. The band's "Freak on a Leash" was directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Smashing Pumpkins) and Todd McFarlane ("Spawn"). That clip won the Best Editing in a Video award at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards.

Korn's Untouchables was produced by Michael Beinhorn (Aerosmith, Marilyn Manson). The band is rehearsing for a South American tour that begins March 14 in Venezuela. U.S. dates will follow.
