KORN Frontman Says Band 'Just Wants To Get Out And Play'
The Pulse of Radio reports that KORN is returning to work after nearly a year off with a series of festival appearances this spring and summer. The band will start with Columbus, Ohio's Rock On The Range event in mid-May before heading over to Europe. Singer Jonathan Davis gave The Pulse of Radio a simple reason for why the group has decided to end its break. "We just want to get out and play," he said. "Miss playing. We've been on a huge break, longest break we've had ever in our career, and I'm just getting itchy to play KORN shows. I mean, I've been out playing solo shows and doing stuff like that, but I wanna get out there onstage and do a KORN show and play for people and just do what I do."
KORN has been on hiatus since completing the touring cycle for its untitled eighth studio album, which came out in July 2007.
Davis also confirmed to The Pulse of Radio that the instrumental members of the band are in the studio now, writing new material for their ninth album. Recording and release dates are yet to be announced.
KORN is currently without a record label since completing its two-album deal with Virgin Records.
Davis has been working on music for his solo debut for several months now, although he is also not ready to announce a release date.
