We’ve got some unfortunate news Korn fans, it appears that the album isn’t coming as soon as we thought.
Korn’s drummmer Ray Luzier has taken to Instagram to clarify his past comments about the band’s upcoming record’s release date.
In a past interview with Sabian Cymbals, the drummer gave an update to the band’s follow-up to the Serenity Of Suffering, where he shared that the new release would be coming out sometime in March.
While publications and fans alike were delighted with the new piece of information, a new Instagram post from the drummer has since clairfied that comment, sharing there’s no set release date just yet.
“Tracking madness!” The drummer shared in the post. “BTW, disregard what I said in the Sabian interview [where the March release date was originally stated] there’s no release date yet kids!”
Check out the post below:
It was recently reported that the band’s guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian “Head” Welch had started writing new material for Korn’s forthcoming 13th album, and according to the band’s frontman Jonathan Davis, the new material is coming along.
“I’ve listened to a bunch of stuff. There’s been really good ideas, really cool grooves. It really doesn’t start taking place until I get there and glue all the shit together with the arrangements and put my vocals on it.
He continued on to say:
“But they’re working with different producers and we’re gonna do the record and we’ll see – I’m really excited for it. It doesn’t suck, I know that. I’m not going, ‘Go back, please.’ I’m more impressed on these than I was with Serenity Of Suffering, so…”
While we’re not sure what to expect from the new album just yet, it appears that it might come sometime next year. Korn released their twelfth studio album the Serenity Of Suffering in late 2016.
