kornwithwelch2013newAccording to Korn.comKorn‘s much-anticipated 11th studio album, “The Paradigm Shift” [Prospect Park], has had its release date pushed back to October 8 from the previously announced October 1. The follow-up to 2011’s “The Path Of Totality” features the return of guitarist Brian “Head” Welch to the lineup after more than eight years away. His last album with the band was 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror”.

“Never Never”, the first single from “The Paradigm Shift”, will arrive online and at radio stations on August 12 and singer Jonathan Davis shared some insight with The Pulse Of Radio into what it’s about. “I mean, it’s about relationships,” he said. “it’s about anything. It seems like you try and try to make things work and you repeatedly fail at it. It’s just like, throw your hands up in the air and give up, and it’s that kind of vibe. I was feeling that towards life, basically.”

Other songs on the new set, which was recorded with producer Don Gilmore [Linkin Park, Bullet For My Valentine, Lacuna Coil] atBuck Owens‘ studio in Korn‘s original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles’s famed NRG Recording Studios, include “Prey For Me”“Love & Meth”“Spike In My Veins”“Mass Hysteria”“Paranoid And Aroused” and “Victimized”.
