Korn Sue Former Drummer David Silveria For Allegedly Violating Terms Of Their Settlement

According to The Blast, Korn are suing ex-drummer David Silveria for allegedly violating the terms of a deal they made in 2016 after he sued them over royalties in 2015. Silveria, who left the band back in 2006, claimed he wasn’t receiving proper payments and that he never gave up ownership interest in Korn. He also tried to get a judge to force the band to reveal the amount of money they have made since he left, so he can get his rightful share. The group countersued and they ultimately made a deal in which Silveria would be given a lump sum in exchange for his rights to Korn’s royalties. Despite this, Silveria still tried to ask SoundExchange for his cut back in July 2018. The band said they contacted the drummer to tell him that this move was in direct violation of their settlement, but he has yet to withdraw his claim. SoundExchange has since placed a hold on all of Korn’s payouts, resulting in them losing $290,000. The band have responded with a lawsuit for breach of contract. They are also seeking to get Silveria blocked from collecting royalties.

Jonathan Davis Recording Vocals For New Korn Album

Korn’s new album isn’t expected to be released until fall 2019, but it appears frontman Jonathan Davis is already tracking vocals for the effort. He confirmed the news in the below post, while also thanking fans for their support following the death of his wife Deven.

Brian “Head” Welch On New Korn Album: “We’ve Got Some Amazing Tricks Up Our Sleeves That We Haven’t Done Before”

During a recent interview with Consequence Of Sound, Brian “Head” Welch offered another update on Korn’s new album. According to him, the band have “some amazing tricks up [their] sleeves that [they] haven’t done before.”

Welch said the following:

“At this time, guitars aren’t finished, and I don’t know if we’re done writing. We’ve written a lot, but I’m not sure if we’re done writing yet. Bass is not done. Most of the drums are done on the songs we have, and a little bit of vocals have been worked on.”

He also added:

“We’ve got some amazing tricks up our sleeves that we haven’t done before, some fun things that the fans are going to be pleasantly surprised by. I know that for a fact.”

Welch previously said the band are hoping for a fall 2019 release.

Brian “Head” Welch Says Korn Are Hoping To Release Their New Album Next Fall

Brian “Head” Welch and his daughter Jennea recently discussed their “Loud Krazy Love” documentary with Revolver and during the chat, Head talked a bit about Korn’s new album. If things go according to plan, he said it “should be out by next fall.”

Head said the following about the album:

“The new record, I’m very stoked on. I can’t wait to get that done. There’s a lot left to do. What we have is really encouraging. We have been writing and we have tracked most of the drums. But we’ll probably write a couple more songs — that always happens. At the beginning of the year, we’re going to really focus and get it done.”

He also added the following about the sessions and the people they are working with:

“We’re doing it all over. We’ve been to Nashville a few times, we’ve done a lot in L.A. We actually wrote with John Feldmann, too, for the demos. Travis Barker laid the temporary drums for some, and that was cool. We’ve known John Feldmann since ’87 — he was in Electric Love Hogs. So we’re writing with different people. We grabbed [producer] Nick Raskulinecz, and he’s very hands on and such a fan of music. It’s not a job or a gig to him.”

As for potential release plans, he said:

“The Korn album should be out by next fall. We have to get it out, because we want to get back to the fans next year and do our thing. We’re working hard. We’ve been through a lot. Now it’s time to get all those emotions and turn them into a positive with music. Jonathan is really good at that.”

Korn Guitarist Brian “Head” Welch’s “Loud Krazy Love” Documentary To Receive TV Debut In December

Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch’s “Loud Krazy Love” documentary will be airing on Showtime on December 14. The film was directed by Trey Hill and Scott Mayo and a trailer for it can be seen below:

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.
