‘Korn’ 23-Minute Video Recap of Performance at Australia’s ‘Soundwave’ Available


kornwithwelch2013newA 23-minute video recap of Korn‘s participation in this year’s Soundwave festival, which took place in February and March in Australia, can be seen below.

Korn‘s eleventh studio album, “The Paradigm Shift” (Prospect Park), sold 46,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on October 8, 2013 via Prospect Park.

“The Paradigm Shift” is the first Korn disc to feature guitarist Brian “Head” Welch since 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror” and follows up 2011’s dubstep experiment, “The Path Of Totality”.

Welch told Rolling Stone that the new album has “the old Korn vibe, but with a new twist . . . The end product is a really good mix of old Korn mixed with some new elements. It’s got a fresh new Korn 2013 sound.”

Welch left Korn in 2005, got sober and embraced Christianity, saying that as a single father he did not want his daughter around the rock and roll lifestyle. “The last two years I was in Korn, I partied non-stop and started doing speed every day,” he said. “I got so addicted that I got scared. I tried to go to rehab, but that didn’t work. No one could help me. Then I ended up seeing if Jesus was real, and He instantly took the drugs away. He revealed Himself to me and gave me the strength. Once I figured that out, I knew I was accountable to God.”

Welch pursued a solo career for several years before rejoining Korn onstage in 2012 at a festival.

In 2012 Welch reunited with the group permanently and recorded his first album with them in 10 years, “The Paradigm Shift” which is released on October 8 2013.
