Welcome to Rockville Artist Spotlight: KORN

Since forming in 1993, the iconic hard rock band KORN have sold nearly 40 million albums, toured the world dozens of times, and set records in the process that will likely never be surpassed. Originally from Bakersfield, CA, vocalist Jonathan Davis, guitarists James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian “Head” Welch, and Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu on bass ushered in the new wave of metal music in the ’90s with their self-titled debut in 1994 and 1996’s Life is Peachy, but have ridden that wave to even greater success and higher artistic water marks.
The band have battled personal demons and addictions but have found their way through to the other side. And now, highlighted by the force of drummer Ray Luzier, a return to a dual-guitar dynamic and some of Davis’s most inspired moments of self-reflection and expression, the new album The Serenity of Suffering finds KORN harnessing all the anger, power, and trademark balance of darkness and light that made their name all those years ago.
According to the Instagram account of Korn drummer Ray Luzier, Korn has begun the process of tracking drums for the upcoming thirteenth album. Brian Welch revealed to Revolver magazine an estimated release date of fall 2019 and named Nick Raskulinecz as producer. He also stated some of the tracks had been co-written with John Feldmann and that the band had tracked demos with Travis Barker on drums.
KORN will be headlining the opening day of Welcome to Rockville 2019.
