Korn’s new studio album officially has a name and release date. On Wednesday (June 26), the Bakersfield band announced the title and release date for their 13th studio effort. Titled The Nothing, the 13-track album is due out Sept. 13 (we see what they did there)via Roadrunner / Elektra Records. This marks the group’s first new album in three years.
The Nothing was produced by Nick Raskulinecz who worked on Korn’s last studio album, 2016’s The Serenity of Suffering. The album is currently available for pre-orders on Korn’s website where they are offering several bundle options for fans.
“Deep, within our Earth lives an extraordinary force. Very few are aware of the magnitude and significance of this place where good/evil, dark/light, bliss/torment, loss/gain, and hope/despair all exist as one- pulling at us every moment of our lives,” explains frontal Jonathon Davis in a press statement.
“It’s not something we can choose to navigate, but rather an awareness of this ‘presence’ that surrounds us with every breath, as if we are being watched at every moment. It’s the place where black and white energies attach themselves to our souls, and shape our emotion, choices, perspective and ultimately our very existence. There is a miraculous and small realm within this vortex and it’s the only place where balance between these dynamic and polarizing forces exists — where the soul finds its refuge. Welcome to…..THE NOTHING.”
To coincide with the new album announcement, the group unveiled the record’s lead single. Listen to “You’ll Never Find Me” above.
In support of the new album, Korn previously announced plans to embark on a summer tour with Alice in Chains. The forthcoming outing kicks off on July 18 at the Austin360 Amphitheatre in Austin and concludes almost two months later on Sept. 4 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.
