Following great anticipation, Korn - one of the most influential rock bands of modern times - have announced their 12th studio album, The Serenity Of Suffering, and is set for release on October 21st. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones, Mastodon), the album features a special guest appearance from Corey Taylor of Slipknot. It marks the band’s welcomed return to Roadrunner Records who previously released 2010’s Korn III - Remember Who You Are and 2011’s The Path Of Totality.
Korn performed the first single 'Rotting In Vain' in front of 25,000 people during a thunderous set at Chicago’s Open Air festival.
“’Rotting in Vain’ was written about being in that black place, being in situations that I don’t like in life - be it relationships, or feeling when you’re stuck and you’re just being abused or you don’t like where you’re at, and you just sit there and rot,” shares frontman Jonathan Davis. “It takes you years and years to figure out how to claw your way out. That’s where ‘Rotting in Vain’ came from. I’m just sitting there, fucking dying and letting it happen for years and years and not helping myself to get out of that place. That’s the vibe that inspired the song.”
‘Rotting In Vain’’s macabre video - which made its premiere via Rollingstone.com - captures the essence of the song. StarringSons of Anarchy actor Tommy Flanagan, the video taps into the dark underbelly of a bizarre world. View the video—lensed by famed rock video director Dean Karr - here

When I sat down with Australian rockers The Delta Riggs lead singer, Elliot Hammond and bassist Michael Tramonte (Monte) all I knew them for was the fact that Elliot thinks he’s Noel Gallagher and they ruin people’s nights, but as we delve deeper into a fantastically, strange conversation I discovered that the people who say such things are false.
