KORN, who just released the 12th Planet-produced track “Way Too Far” as their third single from The Path Of Totality album, have announced another leg of their massively successful corresponding tour. The next segment launches on April 20 and finds the band hitting several cities and amphitheaters in Texas, which will be a mix of headlining shows and festival dates. Most of the dates go on sale this weekend, with more to be announced soon. Pre-sale tickets and VIP packages are available now - details can be found at korn.com.



This news comes on the tail end of the second leg, which ran in late winter packing houses and earning rave reviews along the way, featuring frontman Jonathan Davis spinning as his J Devil alter ego. J Devil and Talented EDM artist Sluggo will be opening on the next tour, to great acclaim.



KORN released their new album The Path of Totality (Roadrunner) this past December, where it debuted in the Top Ten on Billboard. The California-based band collaborated with some of the hottest names in electronic music, such as Skrillex, 12th Planet, Flinch, Excision, Datsik and Kill the Noise. The album has been met with near universal praise and KORN once again proved that they are ahead of the curve. In fact, not only has the album sold well, but has already garnered over 450,000 single sales--a staggering amount and a testament to the growing EDM following that KORN has amassed by experimenting with different genres--with other cuts from the album including Top Five rock hits “Get Up!” with Skrillex and “Narcissistic Cannibal” also with Skrillex and Kill The Noise.

The band released their first demo album, Neidermeyer's Mind, in 1993. Their debut album, Korn was released in 1994, where they featured the same musicians that had performed on Neidermeyer's Mind. The band began recording Life Is Peachy in April 1996, and released it on October 15, 1996. Follow the Leader is recognized as Korn's mainstream breakthrough, peaking at number one on the Billboard 200 in 1998, along with the following album, Issues in 1999. The band released Untouchables on June 11, 2002, and later released Take a Look in the Mirror on November 21, 2003. Their first compilation album, Greatest Hits Vol. 1, was released on October 5, 2004. See You on the Other Side was released on December 6, 2005, and Korn's untitled album was released nearly two years later on July 31, 2007. Korn III: Remember Who You Are, the band's ninth studio album, was released July 13, 2010 via Roadrunner Records.

Korn has sold 16.5 million albums in the US and over 35 million worldwide. Ten of the band's official releases have peaked in the top ten of the Billboard 200, eight of which have peaked in the top five. Eight of those releases are certified Platinum or Multi-Platinum by the RIAA, and one is certified Gold. Korn have released six video albums and 39 music videos. They currently have 39 singles, 27 of which have charted. Korn have earned two Grammy Awards out of seven nominations, for "Freak on a Leash" and "Here to Stay".
