Korn have released a behind-the-scenes video showing how their Black Is The Soul promo came together.

The video for The Serenity Of Suffering track arrived earlier this month and showed a faceless woman wading through pitch-black water in an effort to reclaim her soul.

In the making-of clip, producers guide the viewer through the techniques used to create the visually spectacular video which was recorded in Los Angeles.

Speaking about the track, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis told Noisey: “Black Is The Soul is a song about being pulled away from the right path and the video reflects that experience of trying to navigate those conflicting emotions.”

Guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer added: “I feel that this songwriting and production paired with the aesthetic look of the video shows a maturity and growth from the band that is continually evolving.”

Korn will head back out on the road across North America from July 19. They’ll then return to Europe for a run of live shows in August which includes sets at the Reading and Leeds festivals.
