KORN appears to have begun recording its new album in Tennessee. Drummer Ray Luzier posted an Instagram photo from his session at producer Nick Raskulinecz's Rock Falcon Studio inside the Nashville complex owned by the music and entertainment company Black River Entertainment. "Great day of tracking at Rock Falcon Studios," he wrote in the accompanying caption.
KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer seemingly confirmed that sessions for the band's follow-up to 2016's "The Serenity Of Suffering" have begun. He replied to Ray's tweet with a simple "Yes," and included emojis for a CD and a checkmark.
KORN frontman Jonathan Davis recently that there were "really good ideas" and "cool grooves" in some of the early material that had been written for the band's next album. The singer also shot down as false Internet speculation that the band is using outside writers for material for its next studio album. "We're writing everything; we're still writing our own music," he said.
KORN will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of the group's classic third album, "Follow The Leader", by playing three U.S. concerts at the end of the summer. The shows will take place on September 12 at the Masonic in San Francisco, September 13 at the Palladium in Los Angeles, and September 15 at the Pearl Theater in Las Vegas.
KORN plans to embark on a full tour of some kind in 2019, although no further details have been revealed.
