KORN To Release 'Never Never' Single Next Month

KORN will release its 11th studio album, titled "The Paradigm Shift", on October 1. The disc is the first to feature original guitarist Brian "Head" Welch since 2003's "Take A Look In The Mirror". With a single nearly ready to drop in two weeks, singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio what the experience was like having Welch back in the studio, making this record extra special.

"'Untouchables' used to be my favorite, but this one's mine now," he said. "You know, it's just all those years of work and being able to be in a band this long with the guys. And having Head back bringing, you know, that ole chemistry back with him with Munky [guitarist James Shaffer] on the rock side and I was on the electronic side. It was good having the compromise on both sides. It was just good for the creative process, I think."

The album's first single, "Never Never", drops August 12.

"The Paradigm Shift" track listing:

01. Prey For Me
02. Love & Meth
03. What We Do
04. Spike In My Veins
05. Mass Hysteria
06. Paranoid And Aroused
07. Never Never
08. Punishment Time
09. Lullaby For A Sadist
10. Victimized
11. It's All Wrong
12. Wish I Wasn’t Born Today (bonus track on deluxe edition)
13. Tell Me What You Want (bonus track on deluxe edition)

The deluxe version of "The Paradigm Shift" will contain two bonus tracks and a 60-minute documentary chronicling Head's return to the band produced by the band's behind the scenes "filmographer" Sebastien Paquet.

In 2014, KORN will celebrate their 20th anniversary as recording artists.

Davis also revealed that he is doing just fine after discontinuing the use of anti-anxiety medicine he had been taking for many years.

KORN is set to appear on the cover of an upcoming issue of Revolver later this fall.

The band will be performing on August 6 in Sturgis, South Dakota at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and Festival.
