Korn will release its first album as part of its new deal with Virgin/EMI just in time for the holiday season. Due Dec. 6, "See You on the Other Side" is led by the single "Twisted Transistor," which is quickly making substantial noise on U.S. rock radio outlets.

The cut debuted last week at No. 27 on Billboard's Modern Rock airplay tally and jumped 31-19 on the Mainstream Rock chart.

"See You on the Other Side" was produced by Korn frontman Jonathan Davis in tandem with Atticus Ross and, more surprisingly, the pop hitmaking team the Matrix (Liz Phair, Hilary Duff). Additional album details have yet to be revealed.

The project is the follow-up to 2003's "Take a Look in the Mirror," which peaked at No. 9.

Having recently wrapped a European tour in Moscow, Korn is in the planning stages of a North American run.
