Korn have released a new single from their current album Requiem, the album's closing track Worst Is On It's Way.

Speaking to Metal Hammer earlier this year, Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis said of the track: “Right now everything is going good, but always in the back of my head I’m just waiting for that next bad thing to happen. I thought it was an amazing way to end the record because it's all about me battling the darkness and coming out on top, but life is a never-ending loop and there’s always more bullshit ahead!”

Directed by Craig Bernard and Culley Bunker, the video for the single captures the Bakersfield band's performance of the song in greyscale as individual members of the band are decomposed into animated particles with a series of visual effects.

Watch the video below:

Korn recently announced that they will be hitting the road this summer with Evanescence for a co-headline tour across the US.

The last time Korn and Evanescence performed together on a run was in 2007, on Korn's Family Values Tour.

 “We’re looking forward to going on tour this summer and bringing our friends, Evanescence, out,” says Jonathan Davis. “Whenever Amy [Lee] comes to one of our shows, I always love seeing her on the side of the stage watching the whole set and rocking out. We’re gonna have a great time on this tour, and we can’t wait to see you there.”
