In April 2021, Korn unveiled 'Monmental', their first livestream event. Filmed in Los Angeles on the set of the Stranger Things: A Drive-Into Experience, the set featured a combination of fan favourites and rarities, including the live debut of Victimized, from their 2013 album The Paradigm Shift.

Speaking to Hammer ahead of the show, guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch explained that the band's delayed entrance into the world of live-streaming was a result of Korn wanting to ensure each event was unique, enthusing that "[the set] has got LED massive screens everywhere and is on top of a building, giving it this really unique vibe. Considering what you can do with drones these days, we got incredibly excited like, 'now that’s how you do a livestream!'"

So far, Korn have released the two singles Start The Healing and Forgotten from the new album.

Recently, the group additionally announced that they will be hosting a special An Evening With… live in-person Q&A and discussion at London's 900-capacity Union Chapel on June 13.
