Rock stars live one of the most unusual lifestyles in the world — always on the road, either touring or recording, working mostly at night and never staying in one place for very long. But according to KORN guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer, musicians like to spend the holidays at home just like everyone else. “It’s really much like any Christmas in any home across America or the world,” he tells The Pulse Of Radio. “It’s nice, ’cause we get to actually be home. You know, we’ve always said from the beginning that this band will always be home for Christmas. It’s a really important time for all of us, and especially now more than ever because we have kids and families.”
KORN‘s 10th studio album, “The Path Of Totality”, debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard album chart earlier this month, selling 55,000 copies in its first week of release.
The band has scored 11 straight Top 10 debuts, dating back to their second album, 1996’s “Life Is Peachy”.
For this effort, the veteran act teamed up with dubstep producers and DJs like 12th Planet, Kill The Noise, Noisia, Downlink, Excision and Skrillex to add a whole new electronic layer to their sound.
The band went out on a short run of dates last month to promote the record but has yet to announce its 2012 tour plans.
