KORN drummer Ray Luzier told Unwired TV in a recent interview (see video below) that the band might headline next year's edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour. Also rumored to take part in the trek are Connecticut hardcore/metal masters HATEBREED, whose frontman, Jamey Jasta, told Metal Mark of SkullsNBones.com in a November 16, 2009 interview, "We're gonna be on a very big summer tour, which I just can't say just yet, but most people will probably guess."

Last year's installment of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival featured SLAYER, MARILYN MANSON, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, BEHEMOTH, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, JOB FOR A COWBOY and more.

This summer, AOL's Noisecreep spoke with KORN frontman Jonathan Davis about the band's forthcoming disc, which is said to be a return to the group's earlier sound.

"It's really like the old school stuff ... like the first two records," Davis said. "It's just going back to our roots, working with [producer] Ross [Robinson, who also helmed the band's first two albums] ... It's just been amazing, and it sounds like nothing we've ever done. It's more in the vein of the first two records, and we're really excited about it. And working with Ross, it just sort of evolved out of us, naturally. He's got us going back to the old school-style of how we were writing, and how we all just sat in a room together and did all this stuff so. We're excited ... It's just how its been taking shape."
