In celebration of their twelfth studio album, ‘The Serenity of Suffering’, Korn are set to return for an arena run across six different venues in the UK this December. Gracing the likes of Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, London, Cardiff and Nottingham; the Californian nu-metal group have stated: “We’re really proud of our new album and we can’t wait to play these songs for our amazing fans in the UK, they are some of the best in the world! This tour is gonna be sick!”
After their beginnings in 1993, the group shot to mainstream success with albums such as Follow the Leader (1998) and Issues (1999); earning themselves fame in the alternative music scene and two Billboard 200 number ones in the process. 23 years later in the industry, and they’ve sold 35 million copies world wide, won a host of impressive awards across a range of categories, and carved out their own niche of original sound. Members include Jonathan Davis (vocals, bagpipes), James “Munky” Shaffer (guitar), Brian “Head” Welch (guitar, backing vocals), Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu (bass), and Ray Luzier (drums) – three of which originated from band L.A.P.D.
As for The Serenity of Silence, (released on 21st October via Roadrunner Records), the album was hotly anticipated, selling 57,000 copies in its first week of release alone. The two-time Grammy winners come back to the UK after co-headlining sold-out tours with Rob Zombie and Breaking Benjamin across America – and will be joined this time with longtime friends, Limp Bizkit; another famed nu-metal group.
Korn’s video for the album’s first single, ‘Rotting In Vain’ has just under 6 million views to date and stars Sons of Anarchy actor Tommy Flanagan together with Korn – and was directed by renowned rock lensman Dean Karr.
Both the ‘The Serenity of Suffering’ and tickets for the tour are on sale now.
