KORN Announce North and South American tour, 12-year-old to fill in on bass duties!

Apr 112017

Just a few weeks ago, KORN announced one of the biggest tours the band will have ever done. THE SERENITY OF SUMMER TOUR features a diverse lineup of epic proportions including COREY TAYLOR’S STONE SOUR on all dates. For the rest of the supports, the tour will be split into two legs with Japan’s BABYMETAL, YELAWOLF and Monster Energy’s ISLANDER taking on the first half (June 16 – 25) and SKILLET, YELAWOLF and DED covering the second leg (July 19 – August 2). The Serenity Of Summer tour’s stacked lineup has us reminiscing of KORN’s “FAMILY VALUES” branded tours of the past and we love it. The tour will also feature stops at CAROLINA REBELLION, ROCK ON THE RANGE, AND CHICAGO OPEN AIR festivals.

 

Another bombshell KORN recently dropped was that 12-year-old TYE TRUJILLO, son of METALLICA’S ROB TRUJILLO will temporarily fill FIELDY’S shoes on bass for the SOUTH AMERICAN leg of the tour. FIELDY is unable to attend the band’s upcoming South American tour dates. News of Tye’s addition certainly has caused mixed reactions from fans. KORN had the following to say on the subject “We are bummed Fieldy can’t join us on this run but excited to do a few gigs with a young player like Tye. We look forward to welcoming our brother Fieldy back when we return to the States in May."

KORN's latest album, "THE SERENITY OF SUFFERING” is out now with STONE SOUR set to release their new album titled "HYDROGRAD" in June. KORN track "A DIFFERENT WORLD" features a guest appearance from SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR front man COREY TAYLOR.

 

KORN singer JONATHAN DAVIS spoke about getting TAYLOR to appear on the song. "We were trying to figure out who we wanted to collaborate with, and I'm like, 'You know, that's the one, that's the guy,'" he said. "And I texted him, I'm like, 'Do you want to be on a new KORN track?' He's all, 'Hell yeah! When and where, what do I do?' So he did great on the song. I already did my parts, I'm like, 'Do what you do, man.' And I like the way he did it, the approach: he starts creeping in underneath the song, you can start slowly hearing his voice under mine, and it crescendos up into the middle part where he sings, and then it's just full-on at the end, so the song came out great."
