Hear KORN's MUNKY team with HEALTH on VENERA's eerie new song "Ochre"

Electronic project's debut album due out via Mike Patton's Ipecac label

Revolver has teamed with Venera for an exclusive color vinyl variant of their self-titled debut. Only 300 made — order yours.

Venera — the experimental electronic project helmed by Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and composer-filmmaker Chris Hunt — are about to drop their self-titled debut, and today (October 12th), the duo have offered up their latest single, "Ochre."

The swirling song features contributions from L.A. trio HEALTH, and not surprisingly, it boasts the same sort of ghostly vocals, pulsing beats and neon-streaked atmospherics that make up the industrial-rock heroes' signature sound. Stream "Ochre" above via its visualizer video.

"'Ochre' came early on in the recording process of the album," Hunt commented. "For me, it recalls a beast stealthily moving through a dark space, or a strange ritual unfolding in moonlight."

HEALTH's Jake Duzsik added: "It was refreshing to contribute to a track that is focused on creating atmosphere and feeling rather than simply capitulating to the endless regurgitation of standard verse/chorus structure. It is grounding to reconnect to the building blocks of music making that are elemental and emotional, and I wish I got to do it more often."

In addition to HEALTH, Venera's debut includes guest appearances by VOWWS singer Rizz, Queens of the Stone Age collaborator Alain Johannes and former Mars Volta drummer Deantoni Parks.

Venera is out October 13th via Mike Patton's label, Ipecac, and Revolver has an exclusive colored vinyl variant — limited to 300 copies — available over at our shop.
