Lead single “You’ll Never Find Me” introduces Rick Raskulinecz-produced set, due Sept. 13.
Korn announced Wednesday (June 26) that its 13th studio album, titled The Nothing, will arrive Sept. 13 on Roadrunner Records/Elektra. The set follows 2016’s The Serenity of Suffering, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and received a Grammy Award nomination for best metal performance for lead single “Rotting in Vain.” Nick Raskulinecz, who produced The Serenity of Suffering, also produced this project.
In a statement, singer Jonathan Davis said of the new album: “Deep within our Earth lives an extraordinary force. Very few are aware of the magnitude and significance of this place where good/evil, dark/light, bliss/torment, loss/gain and hope/despair all exist as one, pulling at us every moment of our lives. It’s not something we can choose to navigate, but rather an awareness of this ‘presence’ that surrounds us with every breath, as if we are being watched at every moment. It’s the place where black and white energies attach themselves to our souls and shape our emotion, choices, perspective and ultimately our very existence. There is a miraculous and small realm within this vortex, and it’s the only place where balance between these dynamic and polarizing forces exists — where the soul finds its refuge. Welcome to… The Nothing.”
