kornwithwelch2013newKorn has set a September 24 release date for its 11th studio album, the first to feature founding guitarist Brian “Head” Welch since 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror”.

Drummer Ray Luzier revealed the release date while sharing a photo of himself and his bandmates via an Instagram post with the caption: “Korn press Konference in France, we played them parts of 2 new songs off our SIC new record coming out Sept 24th. #korntour2013 #kornfans #korn #korn2013 #fieldy #brianheadwelch #munky #jdevil.”

Video footage of Korn‘s June 22 press conference at Hellfest in Clisson, France can be seen below.

With singer Jonathan Davis saying not long ago that he thinks the new disc is the best Korn has ever done, The Pulse Of Radio asked Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer for his assessment. “It’s heavy metal with lots of melody,” he said. “Jonathan‘s lyrics are — the way he elaborates and articulates on different subjects, his melodies are so killer. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”

The new Korn set will follow up 2011’s “The Path Of Totality”, which found the group experimenting with dubstep.

Welch left the band in 2005 to pursue a solo career and devote more of his life to Christianity, but rejoined them for one gig last year and several more in 2013, leading to plans to record together again.

Korn kicked off a world tour last month with a round of dates in the U.S. and is now on tour in Europe for a large chunk of this month and July This is Welch‘s first full run of dates with the band after playing one song with them last year at the Carolina Rebellion festival. Remaining European dates are listed below.
