Good news for Korn fans: the band has announced the first batch of tour dates in support of their upcoming album, The Paradigm Shift .
The group’s North American trek begins on September 26 in Philadelphia, PA, and will make stops in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, among other cities. The names of all the venues and information on purchasing tickets to the gigs will be revealed in the coming weeks.
Co-founding guitarist Brian "Head" Welch , who recently reunited with the group for The Paradigm Shift , will pull double duty on the upcoming shows: his side project Love & Death will support Korn on all dates. Asking Alexandria is also scheduled to open for Korn as well.
“These shows are for the diehards,” says frontman Jonathan Davis in a statement. “Can’t wait to play the new songs from TPS and expect some surprise blasts from the past too because Head’s back!”
The Paradigm Shift is due October 8. The album will be released in both standard and deluxe editions. The deluxe version will contain two bonus tracks plus a DVD of the new documentary, Reconciliation .
