Korn's Jonathan Davis

Korn Recording Vocals For New Album


Though their thirteenth studio album is tentatively being lined up for a planned fall 2019 release date, Korn appear to currently be making headway in the studio. The band’s frontman Jonathan Davis revealed in the below Instagram post shared this weekend that he has been in the studio tracking vocals for the outing.

Davis stated this past fall that he has been more involved in this writing process for this record—something he admitted he hasn’t been for the band’s past three records.

While he understandably took some time off following the death of his wife Deven, who passed away this past August from an accidental overdose, he also spent a considerable amount of time touring in 2018 on his solo project—most recently playing the New Year’s Eve ‘Ozzfest‘ festival.

The band have been working with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Mastodon, Deftones) on the record, though early writing sessions also involved Travis Barker of Blink-182 and producer/musician John Feldmann of Goldfinger fame.

In this interview published late last month, the band’s guitarist Brian “Head” Welch said of their progress on the record at the time:

“At this time, guitars aren’t finished, and I don’t know if we’re done writing. We’ve written a lot, but I’m not sure if we’re done writing yet. Bass is not done. Most of the drums are done on the songs we have, and a little bit of vocals have been worked on.”
