Korn Will Not Be Playing “Follow The Leader” In Full At Upcoming 20th Anniversary Shows

Korn previously announced a few “Follow The Leader“ 20th anniversary concerts, but it doesn’t appear that they will be playing the album in full at these shows. Jonathan Davis told 93.3 WMMR radio the following:

“We’re not gonna do it in its entirety. There’s a couple of songs that are just dumb [laughs], that we don’t wanna play. We were really drunk when we made ’em. But we’re gonna play the majority of the record.”

Jonathan Davis Offers Tentative Timeline For New Korn Album

During an interview with WhatCulture, Jonathan Davis offered a tentative timeline for Korn’s new album. According to him, members of the group have been writing with different producers and that the effort may arrive in the spring of 2019. Here’s what Davis had to say:

“‘Head‘ and ‘Munky‘ have been writing with a couple different producers, working on riffs and putting them down, cataloguing everything. We’re gonna get together as a band in July and start putting their ideas together in the studio and start working on it. So, yeah, it’s in the future, definitely. When I get back after this European run I start writing vocals for the stuff that they’ve done. We’re gonna keep working through the year, so hopefully we’ll have one out, probably, this time next year.”

Korn’s Jonathan Davis Clarifies His Recent Comments Regarding Munky & Head Working With “Different People”

Korn’s Jonathan Davis recently made headlines after saying “Munky and Head have been writing with different people” for the band’s next album. Now, during a recent interview, he clarified his comments, saying that they have just been working with different producers, not songwriters. Here’s what he had to say:

“[Munky and Head] been working with a couple of different producers. I fucking hate the Internet, man. I say, ‘Hey, the guys have been working with a couple of people,’ and they say, ‘Oh, now they’re using writers, and they suck.’ I fucking hate it! They’re working with two producers. We’re writing everything. And when I get done with this [solo] tour, I’m gonna go back, I think, in July for a couple of days and start working with them. We’re just working on music. It’s just how it works. We’re still writing our own music. It’s all good. No worries, man — no worries.”

Jonathan Davis Says “Munky And Head Have Been Writing With Different People” For Korn’s Next Album

It looks like members of Korn have been using some outside help with the writing sessions for their new album. Jonathan Davis told Full Metal Jackie the following on “Whiplash”:

“I’m pulling double duty. Munky and Head have been writing with different people for a while now, getting songs together. And then we’ll all come together in L.A. in a studio. We’re gonna start writing some songs together for a week. So they’re gonna keep writing, and when I get back from [my solo] tour, I’m gonna jump right back in and write some more with them. And then we’ll start working on the record probably late this year.”

Korn Planning A “Cool Tour” For 2019

Korn only have a few dates scheduled for this year, but it looks like fans will have something to look forward to next year. While promoting his new documentary “Loud Krazy Love” on Fox 17‘s “Rock & Review”, Brian “Head” Welch revealed that the band will “resurrect some cool tour plans” in 2019. Since he used the word “resurrect” many have speculated that he may be talking about bringing back the “Family Values Tour,” though that is unconfirmed. Here’s what Welch had to say:

“Actually, we went to Australia and Japan. It was amazing. We played Download Festival with Prophets Of Rage… And then we played in Japan a few shows. So now we’re taking time off. We’re writing more music. We’re doing only four shows this year in America. Three… L.A., Vegas, San Francisco—that’s it. We’ve got some plans to resurrect some cool tour plans next year, 2019. But it’s cool to have time off.”

New Trailer Released For Upcoming Documentary On Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch

A new trailer has been shared for the upcoming “Loud Krazy Love” documentary about Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch. You can watch that over at The Hollywood Reporter. The film was directed by Trey Hill and Scott Mayo, and it will premiere this weekend at the Dallas International Film Festival. It will also be screened at the Nashville Film Festival, which is set to take place on May 10-19. A wide release is expected in the fall. Here’s a synopsis:

Thunderous. Angry. Cathartic. The sound Brian “Head” Welch helped pioneer with Korn in the early ‘90s provided identity to a generation of misfits and made him a global rock star. Famous, wealthy, and worshipped in the spotlight, an adolescent self-loathing relentlessly haunted him in the shadows—until the day a tiny miracle was born. By the time he walked out on a $23M record deal in 2005, desperate to kick a devastating crystal meth habit, all he wanted was to become a good father. The truly hard part had just begun. Loud Krazy Love details the harrowing journey of Brian and his daughter Jennea growing up together with chaotic courage and unconventional faith. Far beyond a rock doc, this transformative coming-of-age story grapples with teenage depression, the quest for identity, and the hope of a father willing to do anything for the one he loves.
