Currently on the road in the US performing a few special shows to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their critically-acclaimed third album, ‘Follow The Leader’, it seems like we’ll be getting a new Korn album in a matter of months.
The news broke in a recent interview that drummer Ray Luzier had, in which he candidly shares some details about how their new record is coming along.
Whilst being interviewed by drum equipment company Sabian, who endorse Luzier, he revealed that the band’s thirteenth album and follow-up to 2016’s ‘The Serenity Of Suffering’ will “probably” be out in March 2019.
Luzier started the interview off by explaining where they’re currently at with putting the album together, stating that the demo stages are pretty much done, and he’ll be tracking drums in a matter of weeks.
“We’re heavily, heavily working on the new Korn record right now. We’re all just about done with the demo stages, and I’m starting tracking drums in Nashville when I get home.”
He then confirmed that they’ve returned to Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Deftones, Foo Fighters, Marilyn Manson) to produce the album, who also worked with the band on ‘The Serenity Of Suffering’.
“We love Nick. He’s like freaking Jack Black, man. I’ll be doing a drum track and he’s like rocking out with a broom stick and a hat on backwards going ‘Dude, check it out.’ and I’m like ‘Dude, I’m doing a take for the record. Do you mind going in there and doing your job?’ But he’s a passionate mofo, and he’s a great musician. I don’t have a drum tech on this record – he is my drum tech. What producer does that? He’s like ‘Hey, man. Your snare is a little bit- get out of here. Take five.’ He won’t even let me touch it. I don’t have a drum key anywhere near my kit. He hates when I pick a drum key up. He really hate it, ’cause he knows how to tune.”
You can take a look at his full interview with Sabian below.
More details surrounding the band’s forthcoming thirteenth album will be confirmed as it develops.
