Korn’s Jonathan Davis To Release New Solo Album In 2018, Planning Tour

During a Facebook live chat, Jonathan Davis (Korn) confirmed that he is working on a new solo album and that he plans to release it next year. He is also lining up a tour in support of the effort as well.

Davis said the following:

“I’m finishing my record finally. It’s been… I started it in 2008, so I guess it’ll be 10 years of work. It’s the J.D. S.F.A. record, but J.D. S.F.A. is no longer. Unfortunately, since Shane‘s [Gibson] passed, that band’s done and it can’t be recreated. So this is J.D. right now.”

“I’m really excited. I’ve been working on these songs for 10 years, and it’s turned out amazing. So there’ll be a record coming out next year. I just shot videos yesterday for a couple of songs, and the tour will be next year.”

In other news, Davis has also launched a new clothing line called SomberOne.

Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch On Chuck Mosley: “We Are Losing Too Many People To The Disease Of Addiction”

Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch has shared a tribute for the late Chuck Mosley (ex-Faith No More). You can read what he had to say in the below Instagram post:

I remember living in a tiny apartment in Burbank California living with most of the guys who would later form Korn. They were in their funk rock band called LAPD. I was just hanging out drinking beer trying to figure out life. They were so into the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Faith No More, and I wanted nothing to do with those bands. Little did I know that Faith No More would grow on me so much that it changed my whole outlook of what metal could sound like. I remember Fieldy waking the whole house up every single day singing the background vocals for the song "We Care A lot" by Faith No More. Every morning he would scream "whoa whoa uh oh!" Drove us all crazy but looking back now it's a funny memory. Faith No More with Chuck Mosley were a huge part of our everyday lives back then. Guys, we need to learn from all this. We are losing too many people to the disease of addiction. It's a plague that's sending the angel of death to wipe so many of our people out and it's got to stop! Please, get help with whatever you're struggling with. Initiate conversations with the Lord everyday. Religious people make prayer out to be some holier than thou thing, but all it is, is talking to God like a friend. Face-to face. Heart-to heart. RIP Chuck Mosley, I'm so grateful that you and your family came to see us a couple months ago at our show 🙏🏼
