Korn’s Jonathan Davis: “My Only Problem With Christianity Is The Fucking ‘Holier Than Thou, We’re Better Than You’ Bullshit”

During an interview with Metal Hammer, Korn’s Jonathan Davis discussed his feelings towards Christianity. The frontman says he takes issue with the religion due to its “‘holier than thou, we’re better than you’ bullshit.”

Davis had the following to say when asked if he has ever attended church with his Christian bandmates Brian “Head” Welch and bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu:

“No. I’ve been to church and I respect their beliefs; the world would be a much better place if people would just stop fucking sticking their noses where they don’t belong and respect people’s beliefs. My only problem with Christianity is the fucking ‘Holier than thou, we’re better than you’ bullshit.

But those two, especially Head, don’t talk about that stuff. He just kicks back and accepts everyone for who they are. We played a livestream in a church when we released the new record and that was cool! I love the actual buildings; I decorate my house like a church. I just don’t necessarily like what goes on in them. Ha ha!”

Korn’s Jonathan Davis commented:

“We’re looking forward to going on tour this summer and bringing our friends Evanescence out. Whenever Amy [Lee] comes to one of our shows, I always love seeing her on the side of the stage watching the whole set and rocking out. We’re gonna have a great time on this tour, and we can’t wait to see you there.”

Evanescence’s Amy Lee added:

“I fell hard into Korn’s music in high school. It was an inspiration during the formation of my own band. The chances we’ve had to play together over the years are special, a part of our history. They remain one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen. It’s an honor and a thrill to go out with our friends again, our first full tour together since ’07. We’re all really looking forward to this.”

Korn & Evanescence Appear To Be Teasing Something Together

Islander Share Lyric Video For New Song “Skin Crawl” Featuring Korn, Zao & Living Sacrifice Members

Islander have shared a lyric video for their new song “Skin Crawl.” The track, which features Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch, Zao’s Dan Weyandt, and Living Sacrifice’s Bruce Fitzhugh, appears on the band’s newly released album “It’s Not Easy Being Human.”

Islander’s Mikey Carvajal said the following about the song:

“‘Skin Crawl‘ is a song about how trippy it is just to be alive. If you really think hard about life and death, I mean REALLY think about it, it’ll hurt your brain and make your skin crawl.”

He also added the following about the album:

“It’s not easy being human. It’s something everyone can relate to. We know that this life isn’t easy, and as frequently as we’ve all heard the saying, ‘people are dealing with their own struggles that we may never know about,’ we want to actually apply that knowledge into choosing to be good to one another.

It’s as simple as the title says…It’s Not Easy Being Human, so we hope it encourages everyone to show each other a little grace in this crazy life. We included a ton of our friends on the record from Korn, Underoath, Zao, P.O.D., I Prevail, Bad Brains, Living Sacrifice, Lacey Sturm, Fire From The Gods, and Hyro The Hero.

I’ve always been interested in seeing my favorite artists work together and we wanted to do that on this record, by leaning on one another, supporting one another, and just having a musical party. We even had the wrestling icon Sting star in a video for one of the tracks. A lot of rap albums have guests all over them, so we were like ‘why not just do that with our friends?’”

Brian “Head” Welch Comments On Korn’s Tour Bus Being Hit By Gunfire

“A couple days ago in Iowa we received a bullet to one of our buses in the middle of the night, nobody on the bus thank God, and the bullet didn’t penetrate the interior of the bus 💪. Well, we’re back in Iowa and hoping for a better welcome tonight Des Moines?! How about bringing some Saturday night energy to a Monday night concert for your boys??!!”
