In a career marked by a series of firsts, Korn have done it again. Got a problem with that? They've already revolutionized the heavy genre with their bold, unsettling music that defies categorization and presented it to their fans with unprecedented multi-media events.

Now they've taken their music to astonishing new heights with the release of their new untitled album. The result is the most revolutionary Korn album since their debut, a barb-wired, bastard son of blinding musical fury, dark and twisted lyrical candor, and searing, sociopathic tendencies. It's the culmination of everything Korn have come to represent musically, "Indeed, Korn is one step closer to crafting an album built for arenas and headphones alike." - Billboard

Preparing for their April tour, Korn have become renowned for bringing out some of the hottest bands turning their concerts into events…stay tuned as they have a few surprises in store.

In their 14 years of togetherness, Korn, the LA-based lineup, has both survived and thrived, and the songs on their latest and untitled record are rife with detritus of decadence and lessons learned. That fervor and authenticity is felt and appreciated by both fans and peers, Korn’s groundbreaking sound spawned a plethora of imitators. But the fans know where it began, and show their loyalty.

“Now we have a new generation of young kids at our shows,” observes Davis. “When we started, most of our fans were 14, 15, and now they’re lawyers and doctors who are bringing their kids. We’re transcending generations. It’s cool.”

And Korn will not disappoint. On the 2007 FAMILY VALUES TOUR, the band serves up its biggest stage show ever, and in the set list are songs they haven’t performed in 10 years. “It’s definitely different for us. Fans are going to be very happy,” believes Davis. “The statement Korn wanted to make with this record and tour was, ‘yes we're down three members, but we're still very creative and still love making music.’ We're so happy to be doing this 14 years later. This is our eighth studio album, but eleventh release overall. [And eight of those releases sold platinum or platinum-plus]. What a career, and we don't see any end coming soon! I measure my success by challenging myself and seeing if I can help take Korn to new levels,” Davis concludes. “If we wrote the same records over and over but were still commercially successful, I would consider that a personal failure.”
