(PCM) Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum hard rock innovators KORN–Jonathan Davis [Vocals], James “Munky” Shaffer [Guitar], Brian “Head” Welch [Guitar], Reggie “Fieldy” Arvizu [Bass] and Ray Luzier [Drums]–have announced dates for their upcoming U.S. tour leading into the release of their 11th studio album, THE PARADIGM SHIFT, in stores and via digital retailers on October 8 on Prospect Park. The tour–with support from Asking Alexandria and Love And Death–launches in Philadelphia, PA on September 26 and heads west where the band will finish up in Las Vegas on October 12.
Korn’s Jonathan Davis had the following to say about the upcoming shows:
“These shows are for the diehards. Can’t wait to play the new songs from ‘TPS’ and expect some surprise blasts from the past too because Head’s back!”
THE PARADIGM SHIFT marks the emotional return of co-founding guitarist Brian “Head” Welch for his first album with KORN since 2003’s Take a Look in the Mirror, and it serves as the follow-up to the band’s 2011 critically acclaimed trend-setting dubstep metal hybrid, The Path of Totality, which debuted Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was named Revolver Magazine’s “Album of the Year.” THE PARADIGM SHIFT is also KORN’s first time working with super producer Don Gilmore [Linkin Park’s The Hybrid Theory, etc.] who recorded the album with the band at Buck Owens’ studio in their original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles’s famed NRG Recording Studios.
KORN’s tour dates are as follows:
New York, NY
The Riviera Theatre
Los Angeles, CA
Las Vegas, NV
