Korn axeman Brian "Head" Welch recently confirmed that nu metal veterans are planing to schedule arena shows with some of the industry's bigger acts.
Whether or not we might have a full-on arena tour at hand yet remains undisclosed, but the talk clearly seems well under way.
"We're talking to some bigger bands to do some arena stuff, so [claps] - a lot different than my life last eight years man," Head told Artisan News.
"We're doing this tour for the album thing, we're doing the Rock Walk, we're putting our hands in the cement next to Eric Clapton, Metallica, the Eagles - crazy stuff like that. So that's an honor man," Head stated while discussing the upcoming Korn plans. "And after that we take a nap and we go and play 'Jimmy Kimmel,' the TV show - I haven't played that since like '03 when I was on meth [chuckles]. So I'm gonna be like 'Wow, this is cool - sober.'"
Head also confirmed that the band is looking to head over to Europe in January for a string of tour dates.
Meanwhile, guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and drummer Ray Luzier discussed the matter of priority change, pointing out that family now comes first. "All of us have kind of reorganized our priorities. It's like - family, then our music and then we have a good time and party," Munky explained.
As the band's new record, "The Paradigm Shift" is scheduled to drop on October 8 through Caroline Records, marking the 11th release in Korn opus.
