New York City (2008 – present)

Fear and the Nervous System is an / band based in New York City and formed by Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer.

In early 2008, Shaffer announced plans to release a new project entitled Fear and the Nervous System (a reference to Michael Powell’s 1960 film “Peeping Tom”). The record was said to be released in late 2008, through his own label, Emotional Syphon Recordings, but was eventually released in late 2011.

Munky described the recording sessions as really unorthodox and more like a jam session then a regular recording session. The band also used different tunings to make the music stand apart from Munky’s previous work with Korn.

On July 15, Munky announced on the project’s MySpace profile that the album will not be ready for the previously mentioned August 8, 2008 release because he did not want to rush production. He also stated that Wes Borland’s appearance on the record did not make the final cut, however the cover art designed by Wes will still be used.

On August 21, 2008, Jonathan Davis mentioned on his live stream that he has heard one song from Munky’s solo project, and that all Munky has to do is the vocals, which Jonathan was personally excited about. Munky has reported that the record is three quarters done with all of the music done and recorded for the record and he has been working on the lyrics.
