Why teach your furry friend to heel when you could teach them to Follow the Leader? This is the pet training philosophical question Korn's Jonathan Davis is posing with his latest business venture: a line of extremely metal accessories for your badass bestial besties.

Davis will preview the product lineup — called Freak on a Leash, because of course — at Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA, this Saturday (October 8) at the Take Me Home animal rescue tent, with an official launch to follow on October 28. (For those uninitiated, "Freak on a Leash" is the name of the lead single from the band's 1998 nu metal classic, which they recently performed with Evanescence.)

The first 100 festival attendees to buy from Freak on a Leash will also get a wristband to meet the Korn bandleader, with a portion of the proceeds from the items sold both at the festival and through the subsequent online store launch to be donated to the nonprofit animal rescue.

"These premium products are created for all, paying homage to the horror and rock music we love," the vocalist wrote in an Instagram post announcing the brand. "This first collection, designed exclusively by me, contains all custom products made with high-quality gunmetal hardware, leather, nylon and plushies that will set your pet apart from the pack."

You can sign up for email updates on the collection via the Freak on a Leash website, which currently features some cute B-roll footage of the nu metal maven posing with some pups.

The Korn bandleader follows in the paw prints of none other than Dolly Parton, who launched a collection of dog wigs and fashion accessories in August.
