Korn reveal plans for new album, club tour

, Staff

Korn have revealed plans to hit the road this fall for a rare club tour to preview material off their forthcoming album, The Path Of Totality. The band will perform at Boston’s House of Blues on Thursday, November 3. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $42 and $52. Datsik, Downlink and Dope D.O.D. will open the show.

The Path Of Totality, Korn’s tenth studio effort and follow up to 2010’s Korn III: Remember Who You Are, is scheduled for release on December 6. The band gave fans a taste of the new material by releasing “Get Up!” earlier this year and plan to release another single, “Narcissistic Cannibal” next week. The Path of Totality is being described by the band as an experimental record which finds them shifting gears and exploring new territory. For the new album, Korn collaborated with some of the leading dubstep and electronic music producers in the world, including Skrillex, Excision, Datsik, Noisia, Kill the Noise and 12th Planet.

“The title The Path of Totality refers to the fact that in order to see the sun in a full solar eclipse, you must be in the exact right place in the exact right time,” Korn frontman Jonathan Davis explained in a press release. “That’s how this album came together. I think all the producers feel the same way. I’m not sure it could ever happen again.”

The Path Of Totality will be released in two configurations: as a standard 11-song CD and a special deluxe edition that will include bonus tracks, as well as a DVD of The Encounter, a full-length video concert of Korn’s performance in the middle of a 900-foot long crop circle in a wheat field in Bakersfield.
