Korn have shared a video of them performing Insane live at the Los Angeles Ace Hotel.

They played the invite-only show on the release day of their 12th album, The Serenity Of Suffering last week. Frontman Jonathan Davis recently said the title for the album was inspired by his “dark feelings.”

He said: “I felt this one I came up with really nailed what I was going through when I was writing the record. It’s a place I always go to – it’s the inspiration when I’m writing music.

“The title means I’ve always battled dark feelings in my life. I’ve been there so much that I feel more comfortable there than when I’m in a happy spot.”

He continued: “I’m not saying I don’t enjoy being happy, because I do. I’ve got lots of things to be happy about – I have a beautiful family, I get to tour the world and do what I love.”

Davis also credited producer Nick Raskulinecz with making the album heavier and more creative than it would otherwise have been.

He added: “Nick really captured the band. He really pushed me and wouldn’t let me say, ‘I don’t want to do that song.’

“He pushed me to the point where I actually came up with some really interesting stuff on the songs.”

The exclusive Los Angeles show will be broadcast all week on SiriusXM (opens in new tab).

Korn will return to the UK with Limp Bizkit in December.

New album, old sound: Nu metal's ultimate heroes Korn are back

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
