Korn Drops “Cold” With A Visualizer

Ahead of their upcoming album “The Nothing” Korn has released another song with an official “visualizer”. The song “You’ll never find me” was released earlier in the summer of 2019 with a visualizer which was later removed and replaced with a video. It’s basically a video that features art instead of the band. The visualizer for “Cold” dropped on August 2. In it, hand-drawn skate style creatures float through a twisting Escheresque landscape in time with the music. The song is straight forward Korn which will be a delight for fans. For everyone who has been waiting for another Korn… Read more »


Korn Goes Prog?

When Jonathan Davis refers to having the terrible twos behind him, it’s not a parenting reference. (His son, Pirate, will actually turn 2 in March.) “We always say that, musically, our 20s are the terrible twos,” the Korn singer explained. “When you are 20 you do the stupidest stuff to your body, you’re close-minded, you’re like a 2-year-old – just grown up and can drink. Once we hit 30, we started really playing the stuff that opened our minds up.” It’s with that open mind that the 36-year-old Davis was able to envision his metal band playing a 14-song acoustic… Read more »


Ex-Korn Guitarist Baptized in Jordan River

KIBBUTZ KINNERET, Israel – Former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch was baptized Saturday in the Jordan River, just weeks after quitting his band, drug habits and rock-and-roll lifestyle for religion. Welch, a founding member of the multi-platinum band, and about 20 other white-robed Christian pilgrims from a Bakersfield, Calif., church were immersed by their pastor, Ron Vietti. Welch said the ritual baptism had washed away his anger. “You know when you get angry and it builds up? I felt like hurting someone before, now I feel like hugging people,” he said. Vietti said Welch – who has “Jesus” tattooed across… Read more »


Korn Member Leaving Band for Religion

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – A founding member of Korn is leaving the band to focus on his religious beliefs. “Korn has parted ways with guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch, who has chosen Jesus Christ as his savior, and will be dedicating his musical pursuits to that end,” said a statement posted Tuesday on Korn’s Web site. Welch told The Bakersfield Californian that his decision might be surprising to some. “A lot of people think I’m crazy. I don’t care.” Welch said he’d become increasingly disenchanted with producing heavy metal music that invokes dark and morbid images. “Those guys in the band, they’re… Read more »


Korn Singer Says New Album About 'Relationships And Hate'

Korn lead singer Jonathan Davis told Rolling Stone that the band’s sixth album, Take A Look In The Mirror, is essentially about “relationships and f-kin’ hate.” Davis says the band, whose last album, Untouchables, sold disappointingly, has “that spark in us again…this is a really aggressive record. More edgy. The last record we were experimenting. This album is back down to the basics and heavy grooves and getting people pumped. You’ll have a lot of screaming on this one.” Take A Look In The Mirror is due out in November. Take A Look In The Mirror is the first Korn… Read more »

Korn Cancel End Of Pop Sux! Tour

Korn have canceled the final five dates of their Pop Sux! tour due to Jonathan Davis’ strained vocal cords. The string of scrapped dates begins Saturday. Shows in Binghamton, New York, Erie, Pennsylvania; Utica, New York; Reading, Pennsylvania; and Bridgeport, Connecticut were pruned from the itinerary, according to the band’s publicist. They will not be rescheduled. Davis’ doctors and his vocal coach advised that he could suffer permanent damage if he continues to perform, the publicist said. Nevertheless, the show must go on in Canada, apparently. Davis and bandmates bassist Fieldy, drummer David Silveria, and guitarists Munky and Head will… Read more »


Korn Promise To Be 'Even More Brutal And Awesome' On Tour

Even without a name, Korn’s upcoming tour looks to be a wicked, three-tiered assault on the senses, complete with crowd participation, a revolving stage and a mic stand with breasts. The Tour With No Name is scheduled to begin June 20 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and run through 26 gigs before wrapping up July 29 in Denver. For concertgoers already familiar with Korn’s new album, Untouchables, released Tuesday, they can expect the songs’ already vicious rumblings to become even more so. “These songs are just awesome,” singer Jonathan Davis said none too modestly, “and they’re even better live. The album’s great,… Read more »
