KORN Changing Musical Direction?
Always liked Jonathan and crew.
It’s still the greatest episode of “South Park” ever.
And over my career I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing former member “Head” Welch a few different times.
But I always get a little worried when an established, super-band, like KORN, start talking about “changes” and “new directions”. Especially when their sound in particular is so distinctive.
For their next album, they’re working with a LA DJ named Skrillex (I swear, I saw that guy open for “The Blue Man Group” once).
The first single is called “Get Up”, and Jonathan Davis said recently “I heard a few of Skrillex’s remixes and really felt there would be a good chance that he would have the right sensibility to connect us to a new hard sound and direction, but still keeping Korn guitars and our vibe. We were just thinking of trying something new, to be honest, so I had my manager reach out to the Skrillex camp. When we got into the studio the connection was instant!”
Give it a listen and tell us what you think!
