Korn Goes Green With New Tour, Plans To Launch New Biofuel
Following in the wake of several major bands that have announced green tours, rockers Korn accounced today that their upcoming “Family Values Tour” will utilize domestically produced bio-fuels in all 16 of their touring vehicles. From the article,
“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.”
What makes this story a little more interesting than the others is that Korn is apparently going to be producing their own brand of biofuel. Apparently, this move is to make people more aware of alternative fuels. The soon to be officially revealed recipe will be called Korntastic. Hey, why not?
