Korn announces new tour

Korn (2008) Korn will return to the road this spring after lining up plans to begin work on a new studio album.

The group kicks off the outing April 25 in Tucson, AZ, with the 23-city trek coming to a close May 31 in Des Moines, IA. Dates are included below.

The band is working on its ninth studio album, and the first since new drummer Ray Luzier signed on as a fulltime group member. Luzier has been touring with Korn since the 2006 departure of original drummer David Silveria.

Ross Robinson, who helmed the band's first two albums, will produce the still-untitled new album, according to The Pulse of Radio. The group's frontman, Jonathan Davis told the radio service that the group intends to go retro on the new record.

"It's gonna be very raw, it's gonna be old school like the first Korn records," he said. "Basically, it's gonna be recorded as a four-piece band, with just [guitarist James] Munky [Shaffer] on guitars and [bassist Reginald] Fieldy [Arvizu] and Ray and me. We really want to go back to that old-school vibe. It was just really intense and emotional and, you know, I have a lot of built-up aggression toward certain things that I need to get out for this record."
