In April, the seven-time GRAMMY® nominee released his fifth solo album, VENOMOUS RAT REGENERATION VENDOR, on his new Zodiac Swan label through T-Boy Records/UMe. The album debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, and has spawned two Top 10 Active Rock singles, “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Super Town” and Zombie’s current Top 10 spin on Grand Funk Railroad’s anthemic “We’re An American Band.” The song’s lyric video can be viewed HERE. The album cover art is below.

On his upcoming co-headlining tour with KORN, Zombie notes, “Some of the best times we’ve had on the road have been touring with Korn, so we’re thrilled to be doing it again!” Jonathan Davis adds, “We’ve had a lot of fun touring and playing with Rob Zombie over the years. It’s been a while and those shows were so much fun. We’re really excited about doing it again.”

These tour dates come on the heels of KORN announcing the return of their FAMILY VALUES FESTIVAL–a one–day spectacular taking placeSaturday, October 5 at the 1st Bank Center in Denver, Colorado with Hollywood Undead, Asking Alexandria, Machine Gun Kelly andBeware of Darkness–as well as their current cross-country record release “launch dates” tour (with support from Asking Alexandria and Love And Death) taking the band through October 12 when they wrap in Las Vegas.

This fall, Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare — the ultimate Halloween music and horror event – will terrify fans every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from October 10 through November 2 at FEARPlex in Pomona, just outside Los Angeles. Zombie will headline the closing night of music performances (November 2) during this bone-chilling experience combining the most advanced haunted house attractions with a not-to-be-missed music festival from top hard rock/metal, rock alternative, EDM, and Latin artists. The music lineup includes: Eagles Of Death Metal, Goldfinger, 3OH!3, The Used, Ozomatli, Beware Of Darkness, Butcher Babies, Ghost Town, Andrew WK, Motionless In White,Powerman 5000, TSOL, The Dickies, The Vandals, and Wallpaper.

THE PARADIGM SHIFT marks the emotional return of co-founding guitarist Brian “Head” Welch for his first album with KORN since 2003‘s Take a Look in the Mirror, and it serves as the follow-up to the band’s 2011 critically acclaimed trend-setting dubstep metal hybrid, The Path of Totality, which debuted Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was named Revolver Magazine‘s “Album of the Year.THE PARADIGM SHIFT is also KORN’s first time working with super producer Don Gilmore [Linkin Park’s The Hybrid Theory, etc.] who recorded the album with the band atBuck Owens’ studio in their original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles‘ famed NRG Recording Studios.

Rob Zombie has sold more than fifteen million albums worldwide and he is the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of six feature films with a worldwide gross totaling more than $100 million. Prior to VENOMOUS RAT REGENERATION VENDOR, his last solo studio album was the long-awaited HELLBILLY DELUXE 2, which came a decade after its predecessor, HELLBILLY DELUXE, the album that established Zombie as a solo artist after the breakup of multi-platinum group White Zombie. That triple-platinum album also yielded a string of successful radio singles, namely “Dragula,” “Superbeast” and “Living Dead Girl, which dominated the airwaves. In April, Zombie released his sixth motion picture, The Lords of Salem, which he wrote, directed and produced in tandem with the producers of theParanormal Activity franchise, with Anchor Bay Films.

KORN DEBUTS LEAD SINGLE “NEVER NEVER” FROM UPCOMING STUDIO ALBUM ‘THE PARADIGM SHIFT’

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, New Music, News, Previews, Releases with tags , , on August 9, 2013 by Randy

LISTEN HERE:  http://bit.ly/NeverNeverFB

PRE-ORDER THEIR 11TH STUDIO ALBUM ‘THE PARADIGM SHIFT’  AND PURCHASE “NEVER NEVER” BEGINNING  TUESDAY, AUGUST 13

‘THE PARADIGM SHIFT’ TO LAND IN STORES OCTOBER 8  ON PROSPECT PARK

Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum hard rock innovators KORN have debuted the lead single–“Never Never,” from their 11th studio album, THE PARADIGM SHIFT–today (August 9) on their Facebook page. “Like” KORN on Facebook and stream the new track here:http://bit.ly/NeverNeverFB

Beginning Tuesday, August 13, fans will be able to pre-order THE PARADIGM SHIFT–in stores and via digital retailers on October 8, 2013 onProspect Park–and purchase the single “Never Never.” The album from KORN–Jonathan Davis [Vocals], James “Munky” Shaffer [Guitar],Brian “Head” Welch [Guitar], Reggie “Fieldy” Arvizu [Bass] and Ray Luzier [Drums]–will be available in standard and deluxe editions, with the deluxe showcasing two bonus tracks and a documentary DVD titled Reconciliation.

The first single “Never Never” features slow hulking beat stomps into screeching electronics before bleeding out on a bouncy chorus evocative of the swooping prowess of “Got the Life” and “Freak on a Leash.” “It was an amazing night when we finished that song,” says frontman JONATHAN DAVIS. “It’s a relationship song. You go through that shit and you get hurt so bad. Then you think, ‘It’s not worth it anymore. I’m not going to fucking love again.’ You experience so many pressures to be a good dad, a good husband, a good lover, or whatever. Being in a relationship is a lot of work.”

THE PARADIGM SHIFT marks the emotional return of co-founding guitarist Brian “Head” Welch for his first album with KORN since 2003’s Take a Look in the Mirror, and it serves as the follow-up to the band’s 2011 critically acclaimed trend-setting dubstep metal hybrid, The Path of Totality, which debuted Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was named Revolver Magazine’s “Album of the Year.”

THE PARADIGM SHIFT is also KORN’s first time working with super producer Don Gilmore [Linkin Park’s The Hybrid Theory, etc.] who recorded the album with the band at Buck Owens’ studio in their original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles’s famed NRG Recording Studios. They initially announced Head’s return via a captivating clip on RollingStone.com and went on to discuss the reunion together in this in-depth interview on ARTISTdirect.com.

KORN have come a long way since their iconic self-titled debut, and they haven’t stopped challenging themselves or heavy music. Why is that? It all goes back to that irreplaceable and inimitable bond. “Our bond is at its tightest,” concludes HEAD. “Munky, Fieldy, Ray, Jonathan, and I strengthen each other. It’s incredible having my friends back in my life. The fans are amazing. This is all for them. We have a gift, and we’re giving it to them. They’re uplifted by what we do. That’s the biggest thing. There’s nothing better than that.” JONATHAN leaves off, “These are my brothers. We’re doing exactly what we want to do. Yeah, this is a new chapter. This is also fucking Korn.”

Be prepared for another staggering, seismic and soaring offering from KORN.

KORN to release “The Paradigm Shift” October 1st

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, New Music, News, Previews, Releases with tags , , , , , , on July 10, 2013 by Randy

Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum hard rock innovators KORN will unveil their 11th studio album, THE PARADIGM SHIFT, in stores and via digital retailers on October 1, 2013 on Prospect Park.

THE PARADIGM SHIFT marks the emotional return of co-founding guitarist Brian “Head” Welch for his first album with KORN since 2003‘s Take a Look in the Mirror, and it serves as the follow-up to the band’s 2011 critically acclaimed trend-setting dubstep metal hybrid, The Path of Totality, which debuted Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was named Revolver Magazine‘s “Album of the Year.”

THE PARADIGM SHIFT is also KORN’s first time working with super producer Don Gilmore [Linkin Park’s The Hybrid Theory, etc.] who recorded the album with the band at Buck Owens’ studio in their original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles‘s famed NRG Recording Studios. They initially announced Head‘s return via a captivating clip on RollingStone.com and went on to discuss the reunion together in this in-depth interview on ARTISTdirect.com.

The rock luminaries recently embarked on their reunion run stateside headlining the sold out Rock on the Range Festival which drew over 40,000 fans in Columbus, OH and making stops at Rocklahoma and more. Currently, they are raging across Europe, playing coveted main stage spots at Download, Rock am Ring, Rock im Park, and more.

THE PARADIGM SHIFT holds a special significance for these musicians. Guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer explains, “It’s a term encompassing different perspectives. You can view a piece of art from one angle and it takes on a certain image. If you look from another angle, it’s a completely different image. We liken that to KORN in 2013. With Head back in the fold, all of the elements fans have loved since day one are there, but we’re interpreting them from a new perspective. It’s a bigger, brighter, and bolder KORN.”

Be prepared for another staggering, seismic and soaring offering from KORN.

JDEVIL JOINS ROB ZOMBIE AND MARILYN MANSON ON “TWINS OF EVIL” TOUR LAUNCHING SEPTEMBER 28 RELEASING DEBUT EP ON DIM MAK

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, New Music, News, Releases with tags , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2012 by Randy

JDEVIL, the nefarious DJ alter ego of legendary KORN frontman Jonathan Davis, has joined forces with Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie on their co-headlining “Twins of Evil” U.S. tour launching September 28.  JDEVIL will perform DJ sets packed with his brand of chaotic electro-metal. This news comes on the heels of JDEVIL’s recent signing with cutting-edge label Dim Mak for the release of his debut EP (details TBA).

“I like to think of JDEVIL as the ‘anti-christ’ of EDM,” says Davis. ”To play alongside Zombie and Manson is going to be a f**king sinister night all around, and an unbelievable theatrical experience. I can’t wait.”

On August 7, prior to the kick off of the “Twins of Evil” tourMondo Sex Head, an album featuring new and unique remixes of Rob Zombie classics by some of today’s top producers/DJs, will be released (Universal Music Enterprises/UMe) featuring JDEVIL’s remix of White Zombie’s “Thunder Kiss ‘65” (J-Devil Number of the Beast Remix). It is available now on iTuneshttp://bit.ly/MqcA3u.

DJing since Davis was 16 years old (years before he was to ever become one of the most notorious faces in rock),JDEVIL has created a sound that is a natural progression from KORN’s tenth offering, 2011’s The Path of Totality. The album saw the band collaborate with dubstep pioneers Skrillex, 12th Planet, Datsik, Excision, Downlink, Kill the Noise, Noisia and Feed Me. It yielded two hit singles with Skrillex“Get Up!” and “Narcissistic Cannibal,” along with Kill the Noise on the latter, and was met with critical and fan adoration.   In the meantime, he unleashed his first formal remix, a gut wrenchingly catchy take on Hollywood Undead’s “Hear Me Now,” released as part of American Tragedy Redux.

JDEVIL is another side of the enigmatic singer who thrives on chaos and contradictions. He may reside in the darkest corners of Davis’ psyche, but he’s always ready to party.  He may be spinning dance music on stage, but he lets out catastrophic screams at all the right moments. He may have black eyes and teeth, but he’s as close to Davis heart as it gets. His DJ sets opens up the door to the ultimate celebration inside of the inferno. Are you ready?
