It's basically an imprint now and I'm looking for a band that I really believe in and I can get behind. I hooked up with, and have always been a huge Deadsy fan and I've always taken them when they've been on different labels. I got them signed through Immortal, which is the label that signed us when we first started out with "Happy". . 

Patty - What's the future for Korn after "Family Values"? Jonathan- After "Family Values" I think we're going to be going back into the studio and making another record.
