“Take Me”—KORN‘s newest track–is about beating addiction but from the point of view of the substance, a song that front man Jonathan Davis says was inspired by old country tunes as well as Brad Paisley’s “Alcohol.” “Take Me” is the fourth offering from the band’s upcoming studio album THE SERENITY OF SUFFERING (out October 21 on Roadrunner Records), following the Top 5 Active Rock smash “Rotting In Vain,” “Insane” and “A Different World” featuring Corey Taylor.
The song debuted yesterday (October 11) via Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog, with Michael Calia stating, “Davis has said that the album is about his tortured relationship with suffering, that it makes him feel safe and, as the title says, serene. ‘Take Me’ ties into the over-arching theme of the album by focusing on addiction. The song takes the point of view of the substance, however, not the substance abuser.'”
Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones, Mastodon), THE SERENITY OF SUFFERING –KORN‘s 12th studio album—is highlighted by a return to a dual-guitar dynamic and some of front man Jonathan Davis‘ most inspired moments of self-reflection and expression. It finds KORN harnessing all the anger, power and trademark balance of darkness and light that made their name all those years ago. Pre-order the album here: http://flyt.it/KORNSOS

KORN built an immortal bond in 1993 the first time Jonathan Davis, James “Munky” Shaffer, Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, and Brian “Head” Welch decided to make music as a unit. They shed blood, sweat, and tears in the studio and on stage, fashioning an undeniable and unique sound that would permanently alter the course of rock music. After six seminal releases, two Grammy Awards, countless sold out shows, and selling 35 million albums worldwide, Head left the group in 2004 to face the demons of addiction. KORN soldiered on, adding drummer Ray Luzier in 2007 and releasing four more full-length releases. In 2012, a triumphant and tear-filled reunion happened on stage as the group headlined the Carolina Rebellion Festival with Head reprising his legendary part on “Blind.” The initial bond came back into focus, and it was time for their next studio album, The Paradigm Shift, which seamlessly melds the group’s ever-present spirit of innovation with their signature metallic catharsis, paving the way for the future yet again. In 2014, KORN started their 20th anniversary celebrations, playing their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album in its entirety. The shows were so well received, the group continued the festivities into 2015, performing the record on tour to fans around the world. Look for KORN to release their twelfth album The Serenity of Suffering this October.
