KORN's JONATHAN DAVIS To Release Solo Album In 2018: 'It's Turned Out Amazing'

KORN singer Jonathan Davis has confirmed that he will release a new solo album in 2018 and will also tour in support of it. Davis is already scheduled to appear on his own at several European festivals — including France's Hellfest — with more touring in both Europe and North America expected.

During a December 18 Facebook Live session, Davis stated about his solo plans (see video below): "I'm finishing my record finally. It's been… I started it in 2008, so I guess it'll be 10 years of work. It's the J.D. S.F.A. [Jonathan Davis and the SIMPLY FUCKING AMAZINGS] record, but J.D. S.F.A. is no longer. Unfortunately, since Shane's [Gibson, former KORN touring guitarist and a member of Davis's solo backing band] passed, that band's done and it can't be recreated. So this is J.D. right now."

He continued: "I'm really excited. I've been working on these songs for 10 years, and it's turned out amazing. So there'll be a record coming out next year. I just shot videos yesterday for a couple of songs, and the tour will be next year."

Davis has recorded and toured on his own intermittently over the years. He has composed music for soundtracks, most notably "Queen Of The Damned", and has toured and DJed frequently over the years as his alter ego JDevil.

KORN's last album, "The Serenity Of Suffering", came out in 2016.

Next August marks the 20th anniversary of KORN's 1998 breakthrough album "Follow The Leader". Guitarist Brian "Head" Welch indicated in a recent interview that the band is mulling over plans to celebrate that milestone.
