Korn has been busy this past year traveling with Disturbed, Sevendust, and In This Moment, along with traveling around Europe and North America performing at various festivals. But with their tenth studio album, The Path of Totality, coming out on December 6, Korn’s taking no time off to relax. The band is performing this weekend at Mobile’s Bayfest, and that’s the kickoff date for their 14-stop club tour that will take them all around America.
The tour includes mostly stops along the East coast including Boston, New York, and Miami; although the band will also hit four clubs in Texas along the way. The biggest news is that stadium shows these are not, with all venues being some of the trendiest clubs in those cities. This may give Korn a chance to test out their new album live before taking it to larger crowds; but it’s also going to give fans a chance to hear one of the most iconic rock groups of our time in a small, intimate setting — an opportunity that comes around once in a lifetime.
And the club scene isn’t the only thing that might not come around again — the very sound of this album is something unique and special. As the band’s front man, Jonathan Davis, said, “The title of The Path of Totality refers to the fact that in a full solar eclipse, you must be in the exact right place in the exact right time. That’s how this album came together. I’m not sure it could ever happen again.”
The first single off the album, Get Up!, was released earlier this spring and the second track, Narcissistic Cannibal, is due out later this week. Just in time for fans to get a sneak peek before catching the live show!
