Stephen Wayne of iRockRadio.com conducted an interview with KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch before the band's July 23 concert at Xfinity Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut. You can now watch the chat below.
Speaking about the powerful production of KORN's latest album, 2016's "The Serenity Of Suffering", and the band's plans for a follow-up effort, Welch said: "A lot of that was Nick Raskulinecz. All these bands that you guys hear out in the world, without the producer, we would not be at the level that we're at, as far as sound and how you feel the music — from all the bands. Producers bring it together. They're like the next bandmember. And so we look forward to working with Nick Raskulinecz again — hopefully this [next] record."
He continued: "Usually you stop a tour cycle and then you get together and you come up with the plan for the next record. So we're talking [about working with] Nick and there's other that we've talked about too, but we'll see. So we're still touring, and we're gonna do a little bit more touring — not in the U.S. anymore maybe. But we'll see next year what we're gonna do."
"The Serenity Of Suffering" came out at the end of October. The track "A Different World" features a guest appearance from SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor.
KORN and STONE SOUR have joined forces for a summer tour, which kicked off on June 16 at the USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City, Utah. The trek will continue through early August.
