KORN Release New Single ‘Start The Healing’; Announces ‘Requiem’ Album

Korn 2021

KORN has announced new album, Requiem, which will be released on February 4, 2022 via Loma Vista Recordings.

The official music video for the album’s first single, “Start The Healing,” directed by Tim Saccenti (FLYING LOTUSRUN THE JEWELSDEPECHE MODE), is available below. The clip is a live action and animated visual feast about death and re-birth amidst an array of preternatural creatures, humanoids and KORN‘s electrifying live performance symbolizing the dawn of a new era for the band.

Saccenti explained of the visual: “Our idea for this video was to mutate that aspect of the DNA of KORN, of what makes them so inspiring, their mix of raw power and transportive aesthetics and human emotion. I wanted to take the viewer on an emotional journey, as the song does, a visceral, cathartic death and rebirth that will hopefully help transport the listener through whatever their personal struggles are. Collaborating with 3D artist Anthony Ciannamea, we tapped into KORN‘s mythology and explored their vast well of light and darkness to create a surreal, liminal-pace body-horror nightmare.”

Requiem was created during the COVID-19 pandemic while KORN could not tour or play live shows for the first time in the band’s career. Because of the time afforded to them, and without the pressure, KORN embraced a new creative process and took the time to experiment together and more.
