KORN Charts 12th ‘Top 10 Album' Of Their Career, Tying Them For “Most Top 10 Albums By A Band” In The Soundscan Era.

Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum hard rock innovators KORN--Jonathan Davis [Vocals], James "Munky" Shaffer [Guitar], Brian "Head" Welch [Guitar], Reggie "Fieldy" Arvizu [Bass] and Ray Luzier [Drums]--have scored their 12th Top 10 Album with their new release THE PARADIGM SHIFT (released October 8 on Prospect Park) which entered the Billboard albums chart at #8. According to Billboard.com, "…this debut ties KORN with Dave Matthews Band for the most top 10 albums by a band in the SoundScan era (May 1991-present).  Among all acts in that time span, George Strait has logged the most, with 18." The band also premiered their second single "Love & Meth" from the new album on Rollingstone.com (10/16). Watch the haunting video directed by Giovanni Bucci here:  http://tinyurl.com/ovq43vd

The band recently appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" (10/7) to perform "Never Never" on national television (http://tinyurl.com/mseulju).  Catch the band again on November 1 for the premiere episode of the Award-winning music television series "Guitar Center Sessions" at 9pm ET/ 10pm PT exclusively on DIRECTV's Audience Network (channel 239).

THE PARADIGM SHIFT marks the emotional return of co-founding guitarist Brian "Head" Welch and it serves as the follow-up to the band's 2011 critically acclaimed trend-setting dubstep metal hybrid, The Path of Totality, which debuted Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was named Revolver Magazine's "Album of the Year." THE PARADIGM SHIFT is also KORN's first time working with super producer Don Gilmore [Linkin Park's The Hybrid Theory, etc.] who recorded the album with the band at Buck Owens' studio in their original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles's famed NRG Recording Studios.

Look for the rock luminaries on tour this fall in support of THE PARADIGM SHIFT. The band's co-headlining tour with Rob Zombie titled "THE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DREADS TOUR," kicks off November 3 in Reno, NV. For a full list of tour dates and ticket links, visit: http://korn.com/events.
