KORN‘s new album, “The Paradigm Shift”, is due on October 8 via Prospect Park. The follow-up to 2011’s “The Path Of Totality” features the return of guitarist Brian “Head” Welch to the lineup after more than eight years away. His last album with the band was 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror”.

Singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio what the experience was like having Welch back in the studio, making this record extra special.

‘Untouchables’ used to be my favorite, but this one’s mine now,” he said. “You know, it’s just all those years of work and being able to be in a band this long with the guys. And having Head back bringing, you know, that old chemistry back with him with Munky on the rock side and I was on the electronic side. It was good having the compromise on both sides. It was just good for the creative process, I think.”

Songs on the new set, which was recorded with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, LACUNA COIL) at Buck Owens‘ studio in KORN‘s original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles’s famed NRG Recording Studios, include first single “Never Never”, “Prey For Me”, “Spike In My Veins”, “Mass Hysteria”, “Paranoid And Aroused” and “Victimized”.

The official trailer for the KORN documentary titled “Reconciliation” — which reveals exactly how guitarist Brian “Head” Welch returned to the band, the guitarist’s past drug issues and much more — can be seen below (courtesy of Loudwire). The film will be included with the deluxe edition of KORN‘s new album, “The Paradigm Shift”, which is due on October 8 via Prospect Park. The follow-up to 2011’s “The Path Of Totality” features the return of Welch to the lineup after more than eight years away. His last album with the band was 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror”.

In the documentary trailer, Welch says about his reasons for quitting KORN: “In 2005, it’s a blur because I was on like three different kinds of methamphetamine, but all I know is I wasn’t happy, I didn’t like being in the band, I didn’t like most of the guys and I didn’t like myself more than anything. Being a drug addict, not liking your surroundings and trying to raise a daughter all at the same time; it just doesn’t really work. Something needed to give. Something needed to change and I didn’t care what the cost was gonna be. I needed to live. I needed to come back to life because I was almost dead.”

According to The Pulse Of Radio, KORN guitarist Brian “Head” Welch is offering fans a taste of their new track “Love & Meth” in his most recent post for his monthly column “HeAd’s KoRner” on Loudwire. Welch and his bandmates are overseas promoting their new album, “The Paradigm Shift”, before their first gig in Shanghai, China but he revealed that they had made a plan before they left to release another song on top of their latest single, “Never Never”.

Brian wrote: “A few months ago, the KORN camp came up with the plan to release another song around the same time as the ‘Never Never’ single was released. We filmed two videos last week before we flew to Europe — one for the ‘Never Never’ single and the other for a bangin’ song called ‘Love & Meth’.” He went on to explain that the videos would not be done for a few weeks so he invited everyone to check out a 90-second clip of the track to tide them over.

“The Paradigm Shift” is due on October 8 via Prospect Park. The follow-up to 2011’s “The Path Of Totality” features the return of Welch to the lineup after more than eight years away. His last album with the band was 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror”.

“Never Never” was made available for purchase digitally on August 13. The track features slow hulking beat stomps into screeching electronics before bleeding out on a bouncy chorus evocative of the swooping prowess of “Got the Life” and “Freak On A Leash”. “It was an amazing night when we finished that song,” said frontman Jonathan Davis. “It’s a relationship song. You go through that shit and you get hurt so bad. Then you think, ‘It’s not worth it anymore. I’m not going to fucking love again.’ You experience so many pressures to be a good dad, a good husband, a good lover, or whatever. Being in a relationship is a lot of work.”

Other songs on the new set, which was recorded with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, LACUNA COIL) at Buck Owens‘ studio in KORN‘s original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles’s famed NRG Recording Studios, “Prey For Me”, “Spike In My Veins”, “Mass Hysteria”, “Paranoid And Aroused” and “Victimized”.

“The Paradigm Shift” is available for pre-order in standard and deluxe editions, with the deluxe showcasing two bonus tracks and a documentary DVD titled “Reconciliation”.
