With his solo album scheduled to release in May, KORN frontman Jonathon Davis confirmed the band is working on the next record. He said:
“We’re in the process of writing right now. The guys are gonna be here tomorrow. The next day, we’re gonna start writing with me over here, hitting our studio in Bakersfield.
“We’re just in the middle of just getting into it, so I don’t know what it’s gonna turn into. But that’s just part of the process – we go through writing and these songs turn into different things, and it’s dope. I love it. I’m really excited for it.”
Last year, guitarist Brian “Head” Welch told Good Company that the album would likely be “a combination of maybe both [‘The Serenity of Suffering’] and [2013’s ‘The Paradigm Shift’]. We’ll try some new stuff though, but we’re gonna definitely focus on guitars again.” He added:
“Jonathan, he said he’s gonna spend more time writing with us this record. ‘Cause he just came in — the last two records that I’ve been back — he came at the last… like when we were done.”
