Korn dipped into dubstep for their 2011 album Path to Totality, but on their followup, they're shifting back to a guitar-based onslaught with the help of returning guitarist and original band member Brian "Head" Welch. This exclusive clip shows the veteran rockers laying down a winding, contemplative track in Buck Owens Studios in Bakersfield, California.
Welch last played with Korn on their 2003 album Take a Look in the Mirror, but the guitarist felt an instant reconnection with his bandmates. "We knew we would have a blast playing together, because we love each other so much, but we really wanted to make sure the music felt right before we committed to making a whole album together," Welch tells Rolling Stone. "But since we got in the studio, everything just started pouring out, now I can't wait until our fans hear this stuff!"
Korn's still-untitled album is due late summer. They'll kick off a world tour on May 15th at teh Rostraver Ice Garden in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania. For full tour dates, visit Korn's website.
