Korn Releases New Single and the Ex-Drummer Seems a Little Jealous
The latest single from Korn has just hit the internet in the form of a lyric video and you can listen to it right here. “Never Never” is the first track to be released from the upcoming album The Paradigm Shift, which will be in stores October 7. It will be the first album in nearly a decade to feature original guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, after his 2005 departure. The new album is available for pre-order now and the single is also available for download.
In other Korn news, ex-drummer David Silveria recently spoke out on Facebook to answer some fan questions, saying, “For all the fans asking the answer is no I have not heard a new Korn song. All I can say is I’m sure it’s not funky and groovy like the original Korn. I don’t even need to hear it to know that.”
Silveria left the band in 2006 to retire and open a restaurant in California. He also stated “I am a funky groove drummer and Ray (Luzier, current Korn drummer) is a heavy metal drummer. That’s why Korn will never sound as unique as we used to . . . Korn lost their groove.” He also stated he would be open to rejoining the band, saying, “Until they have the real ‘funky drummer’ it’s just not gonna groove the way it could. I’ve made it clear that I would come back and restore the groove.”
I don’t know if I would want someone who seems so stuck up back in my group. It seems like he is just a little bit jealous that the band is still going strong without his ‘funky groove’ to keep them in time.
Lead singer Jonathan Davis said a while back that he felt Silveria had lost his passion for the music, “David was there to write beats but he wasn’t really there. He really didn’t like playing drums. The first two albums, I think, he really enjoyed playing drums and then after that he just lost his love for playing drums. It happens. Okay, good for him, he wanted to move on and do something else.”
Anyway, don’t let the ranting of a jealous ex-band member ruin why you’re really here though Buzzhead. You want to hear the latest single from Korn right? Well here you go, plus the track listing from the upcoming album. Enjoy!
