For KORN’s as-yet-untitled album due in the late summer via Prospect Park/Caroline, the band chose not to repeat the dub step/rock fusion of their previous album The Path of Totality, but remained intent on keeping the sounds fresh and new.
On the new album, they promise to mesh the classic dual guitar attack of James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian ‘Head’ Welch (returning for the first time since the band’s 2003 album Take A Look In The Mirror), with an all-new approach to the integration of electronics.
KORN is recording the album in Bakersfield, CA where they have taken over the historical Buck Owens’ Studios in the old River Theatre Building, which opened in 1939 and has hosted many top artists over the years including the likes of James Brown and Johnny Cash.
They’ll kick off a world tour on May 15th at the Rostraver Ice Garden in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania. For full tour dates, visit Korn’s website.
