JONATHAN DAVIS DISCUSSES KORN'S NEW ALBUM

7/30/2013

Korn's 11th album The Paradign Shift is out on Oct 1st. With a single nearly ready to drop in two weeks, singer Jonathan Davis told us what the experience was like having Brian "Head" Welch back in the studio, making this record extra special.

 

"Untouchables used to be my favorite, but this one's mine now. You know, it's just all those years of work and being able to be in a band this long with the guys. And having Head back bringing, you know, that ole chemistry back with him with Munky James Shaffer on the rock side and I was on the electronic side. It was good having the compromise on both sides. It was just good for the creative process, I think."

  • The album's first single "Never Never" drops August 12th.
  • The deluxe version of The Paradigm Shift will contain two bonus tracks and a 60 minute documentary chronicling Head's return to the band produced by the band's behind the scenes "filmographer" Sebastien Paquet.
  • In 2014, Korn will celebrate their 20th anniversary as recording artists.
  • Davis also revealed that he is doing just fine after discontinuing the use of anti-anxiety medicine he had been taking for many years.
  • Korn is set to appear on the cover of an upcoming issue of Revolver later this fall.
  • The band will be performing on August 6th in Sturgis, South Dakota at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and Festival.
