The official “lyric video” for KORN‘s new single, “Get Up!”, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s next studio effort, “The Path To Totality”, which will arrive on November 15. As previously reported, the set is experimental in nature and features the heavy rock group collaborating with a number of dubstep DJs and producers, including Skrillex, Kill The Noise, Excision and 12th Planet. Other songs set to appear on the CD include “Burn The Obedient”, “Illuminati”, “Kill Mercy Within”, “Narcissistic Cannibal” and “Chaos Lives In Everything”.
KORN vocalist Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio that the band was excited about the possibilities of combining its sound with dubstep artists. “Me and Munk [James “Munky” Shaffer, guitar] and Fieldy [Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, bass] and Ray [Luzier, drums] are really, really excited about this, and it’s cool to see Munk and Fieldy, when they first heard dubstep music, get a little spark in their eyes light up, going ‘Oh, that’s pretty cool.’ It was cool. It’s like when you’re a kid and you discover new music, that excitement, I love that, and those guys do too.”
The new disc will be KORN‘s 10th studio effort and will follow up last year’s “Korn III – Remember Who You Are”.
Ray Lazier told Download that he thought the move toward dubstep meant he might be replaced by a drum machine. He explained, “Normally it would drive me crazy because I think drum machines are soulless. But [Davis] said, ‘No, we’re going to experiment with triggers,’ which I’ve never done before. So we actually triggered the sounds Skrillex made with my kit — I’m actually playing them live. I was excited by that.”
