The music video for Korn’s new single, “Worst Is On Its Way,” has been released. Korn will embark on a worldwide series of major festival and amphitheater tour dates this summer, beginning in the United States.
Korn has released a new video for the song “Worst Is on Its Way” following the release of their highly anticipated studio album Requiem on Loma Vista Recordings in February.
Individual members of the band are decomposed into animated particles with a succession of visual effects in the Craig Bernard and Culley Bunker-directed video, which portrays the band’s high-energy performance of the song in greyscale.
The nine-track album includes the hit single “Start the Healing,” which reached No. 1 on the Active Rock chart, as well as previously released tracks “Forgotten,” which Rolling Stone called “explosive,” and “Lost In The Grandeur,” which was released as a final taste of Requiem just days before its release.
Requiem was produced by Korn and Chris Collier and was recently hailed by GQ as “radical and iconoclastic.” It was released to critical praise, with recent covers of Revolver and King Kong magazines.
Korn’s influence extends beyond awards and platinum certifications. The Ringer says they’re “a true movement in a way bands can’t be right now.” They represent a new archetype and radical innovation, and their capacity to cross genre boundaries renders genre borders obsolete.
Energized by a new creative process free of time constraints, the band was able to do things with Requiem that they hadn’t been able to do in the previous two decades, such as take more time to experiment together or meticulously record to analog tape – processes that unearthed new sonic dimension and texture in their music.
Korn will also embark on a worldwide run of major festival and amphitheater tour dates beginning this summer and continuing into the fall. The extended tour kicks out on May 25 in Amsterdam with a headline performance at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Daytona Beach. Before returning to the United States for gigs in Denver, Charlotte, Dallas, and Boise, the tour will stop in Berlin, London, Stockholm, Budapest, and other cities.
