Rather than announcing a major worldwide tour marking the return of guitarist Brian "Head" Welch
to their ranks, Korn
have decided to please the hardcore crowd first, confirming a select number of North American club gigs this fall.
The trek will kick off September 26 in Philadelphia and feature Asking Alexandria
and "Head"'s very own Love and Death
as support acts. Including nine shows, the tour will keep the three acts busy through October 12.
"These shows are for the diehards,"
notes singer Jonathan Davis
. "Can't wait to play the new songs from 'TPS' and expect some surprise blasts from the past too because 'Head''s back."
Upcoming Korn record "The Paradigm Shift
" is scheduled for October 8 release via Caroline Records. The album was previously announced
with "Never Never
" single and the latest
"Love & Meth
" track snippet.
"The feedback has been incredible!"
Head stated regarding the new record. "Everyone is saying it's the best album since 'Issues' or 'Untouchables,' which is a huge compliment."
