It was only 2019 that Korn released their latest album The Nothing to critical acclaim. But idle hands are the Devil’s playground, and it appears that quarantine has given Korn time to write, because frontman Jonathan Davis has recently announced that the band are officially done writing their upcoming new album.
“We just got done writing a record,” Davis said in a recent interview with Kerrang!, as reported by The PRP. “I’m in Bakersfield, a couple of guys are in L.A. and a couple of guys are in Nashville. It’s like an act of God to get us all together to do anything. We have to plan that all out. I’m sure there are a bazillion other bands with new music to release, too. In the meantime, let’s just go out, play live and have some fun.”
Keep your eyes peeled for more news about Korn’s new album in the near future!
Meanwhile, fans who need the live Korn experience can rest assured that it’s on its way. In February, it was revealed that the band’s stadium shows with System of a Down and Faith No More were officially rescheduled.
The stadium gigs will take place on October 22nd and 23rd, once again at the Banc of California Stadium. Those who purchased tickets for the original show will have them honored, though if they can’t make it or prefer a refund, that option’s on the table, too.
“Our shows at Banc of California Stadium in May have now been rescheduled to October 22 and 23,” write System of a Down via their Facebook. “Your ticket will be honored accordingly. If you cannot make the new date or prefer a refund, you should have received an email with your refund options. If you did not receive an email, please contact your point of purchase. For more information please visit: livenation.com/refund.
“Hopefully this will be the last time the dates are moved because we’re very excited to see you all ASAP.”
