TICKETS ON SALE THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 10
The "NOCTURNAL UNDERGROUND" arena tour will kick off on September 24 at Scheels Arena in Fargo, ND taking KORN deep into the heart of America through late October. On this out, the band will pass through such markets as Omaha, Cedar Rapids, Charlotte, Biloxi, Tampa, Jacksonville, Tulsa and beyond. In between, KORNwill appear at the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, KY on October 2. KORN's full tour routing-which also includes the Return of the Dreads Tour (their co-headlining trek with Rob Zombie this summer)-can be found below.
It's no secret KORN have been hunkered down in the studio working on a new album, as Brian "Head" Welch told Billboard earlier this year, "We're focusing on guitars and spending a lot of time on them. It sounds really good, and I think it's going to end up a heavier record." It's quite possible new tracks will be heard this fall.
KORN built an immortal bond in 1993 the first time Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, and Brian "Head" Welch decided to make music as a unit. They shed blood, sweat, and tears in the studio and on stage, fashioning an undeniable and unique sound that would permanently alter the course of rock music. After six seminal releases, two Grammy Awards, countless sold out shows, and selling 35 million albums worldwide, Head left the group in 2004 to face the demons of addiction. KORN soldiered on, adding drummer Ray Luzier in 2007 and releasing four more full-length releases. In 2012, a triumphant and tear-filled reunion happened on stage as the group headlined the Carolina Rebellion Festival with Head reprising his legendary part on "Blind." The initial bond came back into focus, and it was time for their next studio album, The Paradigm Shift, which seamlessly melds the group's ever-present spirit of innovation with their signature metallic catharsis, paving the way for the future yet again. In 2014, KORN started their 20th anniversary celebrations, playing their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album in its entirety. The shows were so well received, the group continued the festivities into 2015, performing the record on tour to fans around the world. At present, KORN is back in the studio hard at work on their twelfth album set for release in 2016.
