Californian nu-metal kings Korn have been working on their forthcoming thirteenth album for a little while now, which will act as a follow-up to 2016’s offering, ‘The Serenity Of Suffering’.
Though what we can expect from it hasn’t really been revealed much yet, guitarist Brian “Head” Welch has shared in a recent interview with Revolver that the band have been doing some writing and some demos with Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker, and also Goldfinger frontman and producer, John Feldmann.
You can read an excerpt from the interview pertaining to the new record below.
“The new record, I’m very stoked on. I can’t wait to get that done. There’s a lot left to do. What we have is really encouraging. We have been writing and we have tracked most of the drums. But we’ll probably write a couple more songs — that always happens. At the beginning of the year, we’re going to really focus and get it done.
We’re doing it all over. We’ve been to Nashville a few times, we’ve done a lot in L.A. We actually wrote with John Feldmann, too, for the demos. Travis Barker laid the temporary drums for some, and that was cool. We’ve known John Feldmann since ’87 — he was in Electric Love Hogs. So we’re writing with different people. We grabbed [producer] Nick Raskulinecz, and he’s very hands on and such a fan of music. It’s not a job or a gig to him.
The Korn album should be out by next fall. We have to get it out, because we want to get back to the fans next year and do our thing. We’re working hard. We’ve been through a lot. Now it’s time to get all those emotions and turn them into a positive with music. Jonathan is really good at that.”
