Korn’s Next Album Will Be ‘Very Groove-Oriented’ Says Jonathan Davis
There's a new Korn album coming in 2019. Back in August, the band posted an update from the studio and drummer Ray Luzier later said the record would be out in March, retracting his statement shortly after. Regardless of what month it will be released, we know it will be "very groove-oriented," as Jonathan Davis offered up some details about how it's all coming together.
"It's going great. We're recording in Nashville and I'm gonna start working on some stuff when I get home. And when it's done, it's done. We're taking our time on this one," he said in an interview with DOMKcast (video below). "And the stuff that I've heard that we're recording is very groove-oriented," he continued, adding, "It's gonna be a good record. I'm really excited to get home and start singing on it."
Davis said that "there's a lot of moving parts" regarding Korn's process when it comes to new albums. "Sometimes records go real quick. A lot of times, you [get in the studio and things happen] really, really fast. And this could be really, really fast. I've just gotta get in there and do my thing. You never know," he posited.
Previous studio updates revealed that Korn were once again working with producer Nick Rasculinecz, who helmed The Serenity of Suffering and is credited as inspiring the band to return to the sound of their earlier, classic albums. Meanwhile, Davis has kept busy this year with Black Labyrinth, his debut solo album. He's currently on the road supporting the record now and you can see a list of remaining dates here.
