Korn Playing Smaller Venues On Ballroom Blitz Tour
Korn's Ballroom Blitz Tour will take the band through GA ballrooms and clubs performing new material in anticipation of their new album, Korn III: Remember Who You Are, tentatively set for a summer 2010 release.
"There is no sitting down on this one!" explains singer Jonathan Davis. "We nicknamed this tour the Ballroom Blitz because that's what we want to see out there, the die-hard Korn fans going nuts on the floor."
The album is produced by Ross Robinson, who produced the seminal first two Korn records and played a big part in forming the band's raw sound. Since the new album is a return to Mecca for Korn fans: raw, heavy as hell and old school, the tour is meant to recapture their early days, starting out.
Jonathan Davis on the new album: "On Korn III: Remember Who You Are it was the first time we've worked with Ross [Robinson] since our 2nd album and these were the types of gigs we played back then. Those early tours were some of the best times of our lives. Now we are looking to bring that vibe back in a big way."
Joining Korn as openers are Los Angeles rockers 2 Cents, whose current single "Get What!" has made them one of the hottest young hard rock bands today.
Seven dates from Korn's Ballroom Blitz are being announced today, with more May dates to come in the following weeks.
