Following the release of their highly anticipated studio album Requiem via Loma Vista Recordings in February, Korn has shared a new video for the new “Worst Is on Its Way.”
The Craig Bernard and Culley Bunker-directed visual shows the band’s high energy performance of the song in greyscale as individual members of the group are decomposed into animated particles with a series of visual effects.
The nine-track album features the hit single “Start the Healing,” which peaked at No.1 on the Active Rock chart, in addition to the previously released tracks “Forgotten,” which Rolling Stone described as “explosive” and “Lost In The Grandeur,” which dropped as a final taste of Requiem just a few days before the record’s release.
Recently described by GQ as “bold and iconoclastic” and released to high acclaim including recent features on the covers of Revolver and King Kong magazines, Requiem was produced by Korn and Chris Collier.
The level of Korn’s reach transcends accolades and platinum certifications. They are “a genuine movement in a way bands cannot be now,” attests The Ringer. They represent a new archetype and radical innovation, their ability to transcend genre makes barriers seem irrelevant.
Energized by a new creative process free of time constraints, the band was able to do things with Requiem that the past two decades haven’t always afforded them, such as taking additional time to experiment together or diligently recording to analog tape – processes which unearthed newfound sonic dimension and texture in their music.
Additionally, Korn is slated to take their live show across a worldwide run of headline festival and amphitheater tour dates kicking off this summer and running into the fall. The extensive tour begins with a headline performance at Daytona Beach’s Welcome To Rockville festival before kicking off EU/UK dates in Amsterdam on May 25. The tour will see stops in Berlin, London, Stockholm, Budapest and more before returning stateside for dates in Denver, Charlotte, Dallas, Boise, and others.
