KORN frontman Jonathan Davis has revealed to Billboard.com that the band is “getting ready to start writing a new record.” According to the singer, the follow-up to 2011’s “The Path Of Totality” probably won’t embrace the same electronic path that the band’s last album did. “Our motto is to keep ever-evolving,” Davis says. “I’m sure there’ll still be some electronic influence in there, but I don’t think it’ll be like the last one and go to all those different guys again. We’ll switch it up and try to do something new, ’cause that’s how we work.”
KORN will release “The Path Of Totality Tour – Live At The Hollywood Palladium” on September 4 on both DVD and Blu-ray. The disc captures a sold-out concert on December 6, 2011 during the band’s trek in support of its 10th studio album, “The Path Of Totality”. In addition to the show, the set features interviews with all four members of the group plus a bonus live CD of the concert.
“The Path Of Totality” arrived last December and featured KORN teaming up with dubstep producers and DJs to add a whole new electronic layer to their sound.
Davis told The Pulse Of Radio that he enjoys being in a group that takes risks. “We’re one of those bands that take the chance and we really just want to put out music that we like making,” he said. “We don’t care if the people hate or if the people love it — we just want people to have open minds. I think it takes balls as a band to do something like that and to throw something out different, ’cause most bands are scared and they end up sounding the same every record.”
Among the dubstep artists who contributed to the set were 12th Planet, Kill The Noise, Noisia, Downlink, Excision and Skrillex.
Several dubstep artists have opened for KORN on its recent tours, while singer Jonathan Davis even did some opening sets as DJ J Devil.
