Korn will release their first album in five years in October. ‘The Serenity of Suffering’ will be the 12th album for the band.
The first song from the album ‘Rotting In Vain’ debuted live at the Open Air Festival in Chicago on 16 July, 2016.
“Rotting in Vain was written about being in that black place, being in situations that I don’t like in life–be it relationships, or feeling when you’re stuck and you’re just being abused or you don’t like where you’re at, and you just sit there and rot,” says Jonathan Davis. “It takes you years and years to figure out how to claw your way out. That’s where ‘Rotting in Vain’ came from. I’m just sitting there, fucking dying and letting it happen for years and years and not helping myself to get out of that place. That’s the vibe that inspired the song.”
Korn 2016 is Jonathan Davis (vocals), James “Munky” Shaffer (guitar), Brian “Head” Welch (guitar), Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu (bass) and Ray Luzier (drums).
The album was produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones, Mastodon) and features a special guest appearance from Corey Taylor of Slipknot.
‘The Serenity Of Suffering’ will be released on October 21, 2016.
