KORN Frontman Is 'Really Excited' About Songwriting Process For Next Album

March 23, 2018

KORN is working on material for the follow-up to 2016's "The Serenity Of Suffering" album, Jonathan Davis has confirmed. Speaking to Ugly Phil of the Australian radio station Triple M, the singer said: "We're in the process of writing right now. The guys are gonna be here tomorrow. The next day, we're gonna start writing with me over here, hitting our studio in Bakersfield. We're just in the middle of just getting into it, so I don't know what it's gonna turn into. But that's just part of the process — we go through writing and these songs turn into different things, and it's dope. I love it. I'm really excited for it."

KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch told Good Company last year that the band's next disc would likely be "a combination of maybe both ['The Serenity Of Suffering'] and [2013's 'The Paradigm Shift']. We'll try some new stuff though, but we're gonna definitely focus on guitars again."

Welch noted one thing that will be notably different on the next disc, explaining, "Jonathan, he said he's gonna spend more time writing with us this record. 'Cause he just came in — the last two records that I've been back — he came at the last . .. like when we were done."

Welch added: "[Davis] is gonna come in and be involved with the music. So yeah, I think we'll have a good record, an even better record this time around because everybody [is] involved."

"The Serenity Of Suffering" featured a guest appearance by SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor on the song "A Different World".

"The Serenity Of Suffering" marked the second KORN album since the return of Welch.
