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.
