Korn will be in London. They will appear at O2 Academy Brixton on August 23rd.
American nu metal band, Korn, were formed in California in 1993 from the ashes of heavy metal group, L.A.P.D., by James Shaffer, Reginald Arvizu, David Silvera, Brian Welch and Jonathan Davis. They toured extensively during 1993, before being signed to Epic and releasing a demo album, Neidermeyer's Mind, which was poorly received, although the album was arguably the pioneer of the nu metal sound. A self-titled album came out in 1994, which was more of a success, and later bands like Slipknot and Limp Bizkit admitted that it was this Korn album which had inspired their own sounds. Four singles were released from the album, while the band toured to support it, through 1995. Their second album, Life Is Peachy, was released in 1996, the lead single “No Place To Hide”, earning a Grammy nomination. In 1998, Korn produced their own online TV show, in which they discussed the making of their next album and invited Q&A sessions with fans. That album, Follow The Leader, propelled the group to mainstream success, helped by a political-style campaign where they jetted across America answering fans' questions at pre-arranged conferences. The album got to No.1 in the Billboard charts and the videos for the singles “Got The Life” and “Freak On A Leash” were MTV favourites.
Their fourth album, Issues (1999), featured a cover design by a fan who'd won a contest, and also that year the group appeared in South Park, and played a sell-out gig at New York's Apollo Theater, the first time a rock concert had been held there since Buddy Holly in the 1950s. The band then went on hiatus, returning in 2002 with Untouchables, but the group were unhappy that songs had been leaked early on the internet. To combat this, their next album, Take A Look In The Mirror (2003), was released four days earlier than advertised, which seemed to pre-empt the 'leakers'. A greatest hits compilation came out in 2004, and in 2005, Welch quit the band to go into rehab for substance and alcohol abuse. See You On The Other Side, their first album without Welch, was released in December 2005, before the band then toured the festival circuit and worked on yet more music for their new label, Virgin. In 2006, Silveria embarked on an 'indefinite hiatus' from the band, before the group recorded an MTV: Unplugged session, which was one of the music station's best-ever selling DVDs.
In 2010, the band announced the “Ballroom Blitz Tour” in support of their new album, Korn III: Remember Who You Are, but the singles from the album did not sell well, despite the group still selling out live shows. In December 2011, their next album, The Path Of Totality, was released, following on from the moderate success of the first two singles from the record, “Get Up!” and “Narcissistic Cannibal”. The tour to promote the album got underway in Boston, Massachusetts, in November 2011, and will conclude in April 2012, in Bristol, UK.
