Korn have shared the first episode of their “Korn TV 2.0” series. This video focuses on the rehearsals for their recent “Follow The Leader” 20th anniversary shows.
After previously saying Korn’s new album would be released in March, Ray Luzier has walked back on his statement saying the effort does not have a release date yet. He said the following:
“Tracking madness! BTW, disregard what I said in the Sabian interview, there’s no release date yet kids!”
UPDATE: Luzier has now walked back on his comments.
Ray Luzier was recently interviewed by Sabian cymbals during the Hollywood date of Korn’s “Follow the Leader” 20th anniversary run, and he revealed that the band are planning to release their new album in March. Aside from that, he also confirmed that KXM will release their new album this fall.
On September 12 at the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA, Korn took the stage for the first time since the tragic death of Jonathan Davis’ estranged wife Deven. The set mainly featured “Follow The Leader” tracks in honor of the effort’s 20th anniversary, but the band did play a number of other songs including “4 U.” After starting that track, Davis stopped with tears in his eyes and told the crowd that it was his “wife’s favorite song.” You can see footage of the heartbreaking moment below:
As you may recall, Marilyn Manson previously admitted that he used to piss on Korn‘s catering during an early tour with Danzig. Fast forward to the present, Manson attended the Hollywood, CA date of Korn‘s “Follow The Leader” 20th anniversary run and James “Munky” Shaffer took to Instagram to show Manson some gratitude for showing up and not urinating on the band’s food.
Korn kicked off their series of three “Follow The Leader” 20th anniversary shows at the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA last night (September 12). You can see footage and the setlist from the show below. As expected, the band did not perform the effort in full.
