JONATHAN DAVIS On New KORN Material: ‘It Doesn’t Suck’

KORN singer Jonathan Davis shared an update on the band’s upcoming 13th studio album – which will mark the follow-up to 2016’s “Serenity of Suffering” – telling Metal Hammer“I’ve listened to a bunch of stuff. There’s been really good ideas, really cool grooves. It really doesn’t start taking place until I get there and glue all the shit together with the arrangements and put my vocals on it.

“But they’re working with different producers and we’re gonna do the record and we’ll see – I’m really excited for it.

“It doesn’t suck, I know that. I’m not going, ‘Go back, please.’ I’m more impressed on these than I was with [previous album ‘Serenity of Suffering,’ so…”

Jonathan was also asked whether the new material is a continuation of the KORN sound or moving in a new direction, to which he replied: “We’ll see. Sometimes they write it and then I start fucking with shit and it turns into something different.

“That’s when I come in and they get all pissed off or they just get scared. I’m like, ‘See that feeling right there? That’s progress. When you’re feeling comfortable, no. I want you to be scared.'”
