KORN And LIMP BIZKIT To Join Forces For U.K. Tour In December

KORN will return to the U.K. this December for an arena run in support of its hotly anticipated twelfth studio album, "The Serenity of Suffering", due on October 21 via Roadrunner Records. Co-headlining the tour will be KORN's longtime friends LIMP BIZKIT.

KORN says in a statement: "We’re really proud of our new album and we can't wait to play these songs for our amazing fans in the U.K.; they are some of the best in the world! This tour is gonna be sick!"

The dates are as follows:

Dec. 12 - Manchester - Arena
Dec. 14 - Glasgow - SSE Hydro Arena
Dec. 15 - Birmingham - Barclaycard Arena
Dec. 16 - London - The SSE Arena, Wembley
Dec. 18 - Cardiff - Motorpoint Arena
Dec. 19 - Nottingham - Motorpoint Arena

KORN will close all shows.

Tickets go on pre-sale at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, September 14 at LiveNation.co.uk and general sale at 9 a.m. this Friday, September 16. VIP packages are also available.

The follow-up to 2013's "The Paradigm Shift", "The Serenity Of Suffering" was helmed by Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz, who has previously worked with FOO FIGHTERS, DEFTONES, MASTODON and RUSH, among others. The CD features a guest appearance by SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor on the song "A Different World".

The cover art for "The Serenity Of Suffering" was created by acclaimed artist Ron English. It depicts a teenage KORN fan at a dystopian acid-nightmare funfair who is clutching a disembowelled and skeletal version of the doll who adorned 1999's "Issues".

"The Serenity Of Suffering" marks the second KORN album since the return of guitarist Brian "Head" Welch, who said, "This is a record to me that the intensity of KORN is back, and the live energy. Raw energy is there."

KORN will hit the road this fall with co-headliners BREAKING BENJAMIN for the "Nocturnal Underground Tour", which will kick off on September 24 in Fargo, North Dakota and run through late October.
