Now it is official. Korn is enlisting the help of Asking Alexandria for their fall tour. Early marketing that accompanied Asking Alexandria’s new album indicated the two bands would tour together in the fall, but now the allegations are confirmed. Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch’s band, Love and Death will open the tour, which is kind of ironic, given that a song on the new album is called “Love and Meth.”
The tour wraps around Korn’s official release date for The Paradigm Shift on October 8. The single “Never Never”and a snippet of “Love & Meth” have already been released, dividing Korn fans on the different sounds, but still keeping them anxiously awaiting the full album.
While Korn is in full-fledged touring mode, Asking Alexandria’s new album From Death to Destiny is receiving a warm welcome, hitting the charts with a top five debut, Sumerian’s highest to date. Check out how they match up with Korn at the following shows.
