Earlier this month, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis announced that he was starting up a new business venture, that being a horror-metal themed pet product company called “Freak on a Leash.” In the initial statement Davis provided regarding this company, he said, “These premium products are created for all, paying homage to the horror and rock music we love.”

Now in a new interview with Variety, the Korn singer provides more insight into this company. The interviewer starts off by playfully commenting that the band’s song, “Freak on a Leash,” came out in 1998, so Jonathan must have been sitting on this idea for a while now. Davis replies with the following:

“I really haven’t! It took shape about a year ago. Me and my girl Bee were talking about how much we love our animals and how cool would be to start a pet line of leashes and other dog and cat products, and she said, ‘How funny would it be if we called it Freak on a Leash?’ We went out and found a company to work with that wanted to do it, and the rest was history.”

Some of the toys associated with Davis’ company involve horror imagery, like one chew toy that looks like a severed-hand. The interviewer then asks if Jonathan came up with the idea for all the toys himself, and also comments on the severed-hand plushie.

“Isn’t that rad? Yeah, we wanted to get these more towards my style. I would go into pet shops to buy something for my dog, and there was nothing that spoke to me. I wanted collars and leashes that used colors that I like, and things that make my animal an extension of me. I think a lot of owners want to dress them up how they would dress.”

Later on in the conversation, the interviewer brings up the idea of a “Satan’s Lair” box, to which Davis says, “I’m totally down for that! Satanic catboxes — let’s go!”
