“Essential” Korn Collection To Be Released
I am still a big Korn fan and can’t wait to hear this new collections record. I have all their albums including previous compilations, but this means the band is in the ranks of other world-famous Sony Music artists that have released these collection albums. Even though they are no longer with Sony it’s kind of big.
The “Essentials” collection will be released May 10th and is a two-disk, 29 song collection featuring classic hits like “Blind,” “Shoots & Ladders,” “Got The Life,” “Freak On A Leash,” “Did My Time” and a ton more. The album also includes current hits like “Oildale (Leave Me Alone)”, from last years Korn III: Remember who you are.
Munky from Korn told Pulse Of Radio,
“17 years into its career, Korn still finds new fans by bringing its music all over the world. Last year we went to South America and we did some shows, and did some countries that we never played before. Peru and Ecuador, I mean, great, great people — some of the best fans in the world. There was 300 people at the Lima, Peru airport. Man, there were police holding them back! We’re like, ‘What? Who is it? Oh, it’s us? They’re here for us?’ But seriously, like, you’ve got to go to them.
Last week I posted audio from Munky talking about the band prepping for the follow-up album to Korn III, with a possible spring 2012 release.
