Korn frontman Jonathan Davis says that the band have begun laying the groundwork for their next album.
And while he’s been working on the record and planning his upcoming solo tour dates, the vocalist has confirmed that guitarists James ‘Munky’ Shaffer and Brian ‘Head’ Welch have begun putting the first pieces in place for what will be their 13th studio album.
Davis tells on KLOS radio’s Whiplash: “I’m pulling double duty. Munky and Head have been writing with different people for a while now, getting songs together.
“We’ll all come together in Los Angeles in a studio. We're going to start writing some songs together for a week.
“They're going to keep writing and when I get back from tour, I'm going to jump right back in and write some more with them. Then we'll start working on the record probably late this year.”
Davis will kick off the European leg of his solo tour with a performance at Germany’s Rock Am Ring on June 1.
