KORN recently took part in a photo shoot for the cover of the October/November issue of Revolver magazine. The issue features a seven-page spread on KORN and notes the band's reunion with founding guitarist Brian "Head" Welch has "led to their best album in a decade."
Video footage of KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and drummer Ray Luzier talking about the Revolver cover shoot can be seen below.
KORN will be inducted into Guitar Center's RockWalk on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California on October 8, the same day that the band releases its 11th album, "The Paradigm Shift". KORN frontman Jonathan Davis said, "When you look at the names of the other people inducted here all you can say is 'Wow!' What an honor!" Shaffer added, "When we started out we were five guys in a garage with a dream. I'd like to think we tried our best to create some great music and an innovative sound but to be honest we are truly humbled to be included here."
RockWalk chairman Dave Weiderman said, "KORN is about as innovative and influential as they come. They have been purveyors of metal's progression since their formation, and are even credited with creating the nu metal subgenre. For these reasons, and many more, KORN is exactly the type of band the RockWalk is here to honor."
The Pulse Of Radio asked Welch what the most important thing would be that he would advise young musicians about being in a rock band. "You've got to get it in your head and your heart right now that you being this musician, it's not for you. It's for the fans," he said. "If you want to go out there and play onstage for a living, you are giving your life for your fans. And it's not about them worshiping you, it's about you giving a gift to them that they can appreciate. And once you make it about you, you're gonna start to shake and you're gonna break down and fall."
KORN kicked off a new North American tour last week and plays Monday night (September 30) in Toronto.
After this, KORN and ROB ZOMBIE will co-headline the "Night Of The Living Dreads" tour this fall. The 17-date run begins on November 3 in Reno, Nevada and wraps on November 26 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
