PitCam.TV recently conducted an interview with KORN guitarists James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian “Head” Welch. You can now watch the chat below.

KORN‘s 11th studio album, “The Paradigm Shift”, is due out on October 8. The follow-up to 2011’s “The Path Of Totality” features the return of 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 deluxe version of “The Paradigm Shift” will contain two bonus tracks and a 60-minute documentary chronicling Head‘s return to the band produced by the band’s behind-the-scenes “filmographer,” Sebastien Paquet.

KORN has unveiled the lineup for its one-day edition of the revived Family Values festival. This year’s show, which will take place at the 1st Bank Center in Denver on October 5, will include ASKING ALEXANDRIA, HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, MACHINE GUN KELLY and BEWARE OF DARKNESS in addition to the headliners.

KORN is bringing back the Family Values festival for one day, on October 5, at the 1st Bank Center in Denver, Colorado. Joining the headliners at the event will be HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, MACHINE GUN KELLY and BEWARE OF DARKNESS.

KORN launched what was initially the Family Values Tour in 1998, with additional runs in 1999, 2001, 2006 and 2007.

KORN singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio back then that the philosophy behind Family Values was simple. “The bottom line is having good bands and it’s all about the fans having fun,” he said. “Not necessarily any kind of statement, or any kind of like crazy thing we’re trying to get across, we just want kids to have the ability to come to a place and not have to spend a lot of money and have a good time. And see a lot of great bands.”

Among the acts that appeared on the tour were STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, LINKIN PARK, EVANESCENCE, PRIMUS and DMX, along with LIMP BIZKIT and RAMMSTEIN.

This is the first time that Family Values has been a one-off event.

The date falls three days before the October 8 release of KORN‘s 11th studio album, “The Paradigm Shift”, which features the return of founding guitarist Brian “Head” Welch after eight years away from the group.
