Watch Korn’s live video for Rotting In Vain


Korn have released a live video for their track Rotting In Vain.

It was shot at Chicago Open Air festival last month, a week before the studio version of the song was revealed alongside details of 12th album The Serenity Of Suffering, to be launched on October 21.

Frontman Jonathan Davis said at the time: “Rotting In Vain was written about being in that black place, being in situations that I don’t like in life – feeling you’re stuck and you’re just being abused, and you just sit there and rot.

“That’s where Rotting In Vain came from: I’m just sitting there, dying, and letting it happen for years and years.”

Guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer later said that the follow-up to 2013’s The Paradigm Shift was an album that proved Korn had become a “ship back on course.”

He continued: “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 tracked the songs from the beginning to the end. I think that’s why the songs feel alive – they weren’t put together in some computer and now we’re trying to figure them out.”
