The gang is still promoting their latest studio album, 2013’s “The Paradigm Shift,” and has only several upcoming gigs until the end of the year.
Apart from a string of European festival appearances, the boys are gearing up to rock Bucharest, Romania on August 3, live at the Arenele Romane. Five days later, team Korn will fly to Canada to rock the Heavy Montreal festival in Quebec on August 8.
Finally, the group will visit Brazil on September 19 to perform at this year’s edition of the prestigious Rock in Rio festival. During the current year, Korn have rocked out on tour with Slipknot, but also did their own headlining runs, covering Europe and North America with their returning longtime guitarist Brian “Head” Welch.

Consisting of vocalist Jonathan Davis, guitarists James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian “Head” Welch, bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, and drummer David Silveria, the band dropped their eponymous debut album in 1994, changing the face of rock music as we know it.
By the turn of millennia, the band became a worldwide sensation, selling over 18 million copies in the US alone. These figures were boosted by a string of hits coming from 1996’s “Life Is Peachy,” 1998’s “Follow the Leader,” and 1999’s “Issues.”
The band tackled every subject they felt inspired by, delivering a mixture of bone crushing metal riffs, and funky hip hop vibe that defined the nu metal genre in many ways.
The band was constantly struggling with drug addiction and internal turmoil, which led to Silvera’s firing and nearly a decade-long absence of Head from the group.
The band always managed to seemingly triumph over their demons, and they are now stronger than ever. With 11 studio albums under their belt and over 35 million copies sold around the globe, they are a force not to be reckoned with.
Korn have influenced a plethora of bands in many ways. Their musical expression is unique and difficult to authentically replicate, but their impact on popularization of seven string guitars was quite a massive one.
Around 2010s, Korn have made a brief departure into the realm of dubstep which was not met with positive remarks from fans, but ultimately they got back on the rock track with 2013’s “The Paradigm Shift.” As their latest studio effort, the album marked the return of Brian Welch, during whose departure Korn operated as a one-guitar unit.
Korn have toured frantically during their earlier days, reaching status of one of the tightest live acts in the world.
