Korn- Jonathan Davis’ Solo LP

Remember Korn? Who doesn’t? Lead vocalist and frontman of the nu-metal band, Jonathan Howsmon Davis, who has been known as everything from JD to J Devil, has finally revealed the title and release date of his debut solo LP. Black Labyrinth sounds quite fitting. We will be able to get our hands on it May 25, through Sumerian Records. Davis has long been known to make incredible music, with the album’s lead single having been revealed to be “What It is,” part of the American Satan thriller soundtrack. The album is set to present a change in tone from his generally dark material

In other news, Korn has had a new 12-year-old bassist, Tye Trujillo, to stand in temporarily for Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu and he is rocking the podium. Not to mention the fact that he is so much like his Metallica bassist father, Robert Trujillo. Furthermore, since it has been over two decades since Korn formed, the boys have become men, the “party’s stopped and it’s not insane.” Everybody is completely sober, states Davis, who himself is now 47 years old. We take breaks, everybody goes to their family, we come back and it’s like we’re a family, like brothers, it’s really a good experience. We have our ups and downs, and of course we get pissed off at each other sometimes, but that’s a given when you’re dealing with family like that.” It’s definitely nice to see some of the best bands from the ‘90s surviving well into the second decade of the new millennium.

As for a Solo Davis, expect to see him on tour starting April 6th, starting off from Portland, Oregon and zigzagging through the country before ending up in Camden, New Jersey on May 19th. It will be promoting Black Labyrinth, which is to have 13 tracks and surprise fans with its ingenuity.
