Korn on Kimmel
It's a good thing the internet is my DVR or I wouldn't get to see stuff like Korn on late night TV. The band, featuring original guitarist Brian "Head" Welch, appeared Monday on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The best part is that Jonathan Davis' mic stand with the pointed metal tips is on full display on late night network TV ... Keepin' it classy, guys! That and they performed "Never, Never" and "Blind." Korn's album dropped Tuesday and they're on pace to chart very high. Will they get to number one? You can make that happen. Support music. Buy albums!
Inside their Head
Speaking of the new Korn album, it turns out that things weren't perfect when the band reunited with original guitarist "Head". But the tensions weren't about the earlier breakup, rather if the new album should be more dubstep/electronica or if it should be more rock. Davis says Head was there to provide some balance. Meanwhile, you may be wondering what's up with Head's other band Love and Death. Well, that future is uncertain. As of right now, he's moving forward promoting and touring on the new album.
There’s a whole bunch of stuff on the horizon to get excited about. Volbeat fans will be able to grab a special tour edition of the album Outlaw Gentlemen, and Shady Ladies featuring some new bonus tracks and a live DVD. That’s expected out November 4th.
Also our in November, Lamb of God will be reissuing their third album from 10 years ago. The reissue of the album As the Palaces Burn couldn’t happen without the band having to track down the master copies of the recording sessions. Once they did, they quickly put together the collection for the release. You can stream the remastered tune “Purified” online right now. The band also plan on releasing a documentary recounting the recording process.
Oh, and be on the lookout for new Monster Magnet October 15th. Titled Last Patrol. That will be followed by a full-blown North American Tour! The band will be up in Chicago November 16th at the Bottom Lounge.
