‘Korn’ Release “The Paradigm Shift” EPK, New Tour Dates


kornwithwelch2013newAn EPK [Electronic Press Kit] for Korn‘s 11th studio album, “The Paradigm Shift”, can be seen below. The CD is the first to feature original Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch in more than eight years. Welch rejoined the group permanently earlier this year after leaving in 2005.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, the melodic, almost pop-driven style of “Never Never” has met with some mixed reactions from Korn fans, which singer Jonathan Davis told Metal Hammer was his intention. He explained, “We put this out first cause I knew it was going to piss off a lot of people. And um, so I did it. That song ain’t for dudes, it’s for the ladies.”

Guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer told The Pulse Of Radio that the new disc is another big step forward for the band musically. “The melodies on it, on the tracks we did, they just sound like, so much like a mature band,” he said. “Sounds like they’re well thought out, the themes of, you know, the songs that Jonathan wrote about — it’s just where we are now. Every record’s just sort of a snapshot of where you are musically, personally . . . financially. [laughs].”

The band will kick off a headlining North American tour on September 26 in Philadelphia, concluding in Las Vegas on October 12. Dates & locations are listed below.
