Korn have streamed their track Insane from upcoming album The Serenity Of Suffering.
The follow-up to 2013’s The Paradigm Shift is released on October 21 via Roadrunner Records.
Guitarist James ‘Munky’ Schaffer recently reported that the band had set out to “put the ship back on course” with their 12th title. He said: “We compiled a lot of material and looked at it in retrospect to our previous albums – how did it play a part? Was it touching things that maybe we haven’t touched on? We took a long time to do that.
“We actually started writing a lot of the material with eight-string guitars. That didn’t pan out the way Head and I thought it was going to.
“But we got a lot of great stuff and we transposed a lot of that music to our seven-string sound, and it made more sense. It sounded more like Korn at that point.”
The album features Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor performing guest vocals on the track A Different World. Schaffer said: “Corey listened to three tracks and he narrowed it down to this one song that he was feeling. It has a quiet moment in the verses, and then it has these big choruses, and then the middle part just opens up and it gets really heavy.”
The official promo video for Insane is expected to be released later today (Monday).
Korn are currently touring North America. The Serenity Of Suffering is available for pre-order now.
