Korn have announced that their 11th studio album will be released on September 24.
It's the first album to feature founding guitarist Brian "Head" Welch since "Take a Look in the Mirror." He quit in 2005 to pursue a solo career and find God. Welch rejoined the band this year, and recently said that their new record was the best in their career. "It's my favorite [Korn] record by far," he said.
Fans who weren't into their last album "The Path of Totality" with dubstep producer Skrillex can breathe a sigh of relief; it won't feature as many electronics, and returns to their guitar-heavy origins.
"There's definitely some electronics on the new album," said guitarist Munky. "Not nearly as heavy as 'Totality...' but it feels fresh."We did go out on a limb there and take some chances - some people liked it, some people didn't - but with Brian back in the band it makes sense to have a very guitar-heavy album."
