A few months back we learned that Korn had officially entered the studio to start tracking their next (and thirteenth) album due out sometime in 2019.
In a new interview with Revolver, guitarist Brian "Head" Welch has let some new interesting details slip about the record, and while it seems there's still a ways to go before it's complete, there are some interesting names involved including Blink 182's Travis Barker and Goldfinger's John Feldmann!
Additionally, he's said that the album is due out in the 'fall', or Australian spring, which is a little longer than we'd hoped, but beggars can't be choosers. Read the interview snippets below:
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
