ANNOUNCE U.S./CANADA DATES THIS JUNE
WITH SLUGGO, J DEVIL
BRAND NEW VIDEO FOR “WAY TOO FAR” OUT NOW
KORN REUNITES WITH BRIAN “HEAD” WELCH
ON STAGE AT CAROLINA REBELLION
KORN have just announced a string of June tour dates that will take the ground-breaking, multi-platinum band through the Northeast, Midwest and Canada. Openers on the tour include frontman JONATHAN DAVIS DJing as his alter ego J Devil, as well as dubstep talent Sluggo. Ticket information and special VIP packages can found at korn.com.
This touring news comes on the heels of KORN’s brand new video for “Way Too Far.” The comically surreal video, directed by Joshua Allen and produced by Sebastien Paquet, debuted at Noisey.com this week. Preceding the debut, several bizarre photos of the band from the video surfaced on their Facebook page—one featuring bassist Fieldy getting a face tattoo and another showing frontman Davis holding a rifle and then bloodied on the ground. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.
KORN released their new album THE PATH OF TOTALITY this past December, where it debuted in the Top Ten on Billboard and earned media accolades including a Sunday profile in the New York Times. The album has also been a fixture on Billboard’s Dance Electronic Albums chart and has sold over 500,000 digital singles from the album—a staggering amount for a rock band. The album also features the new single “Way Too Far” as well as “Get Up!” and “Narcissistic Cannibal,” the later two of which were Top Ten hits at Active Rock Radio.
KORN made waves this weekend when founding member Brian “Head” Welch joined his former bandmates onstage for the first time in nine years in front of 30,000 amazed fans at this year’s Carolina Rebellion Festival. Check out Revolver.com’s exclusive coverage HERE.
Meanwhile, KORN last month took home the REVOLVER Golden God Award for “Album of the Year,” presented by Marshall Amplification, for THE PATH OF TOTALITY (Roadrunner).
