Korn has selected Puddle Of Mudd and Deadsy as the support acts for its forthcoming North American tour, which, as previously reported, will kick off June 20 in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Only a handful of venues have been announced for the 15-date track aside from the opening show, including a June 23 stop at New York's Madison Square Garden and a July 11 visit to Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky.

As previously reported, Korn's fifth Immortal/Epic album, "Untouchables," is due June 11. First single "Here to Stay" has been an immediate hit at U.S. rock radio outlets, and is No. 7 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and No. 13 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks tally this week.

Puddle Of Mudd continues to gain steam on its first North American headlining tour, which hits Phoenix tonight (April 18) and wraps May 18 in Washington, D.C. The group's Flawless/Geffen album "Come Clean" is No. 17 in its 33rd week on The Billboard 200 and has moved nearly 2 million copies in the U.S. to date, according to SoundScan. The single "Blurry" is No. 7 on the Hot 100 and No. 2 on both Mainstream and Modern Rock charts.

Deadsy, fronted by P. Exeter Blue (the son of Gregg Allman and Cher), will release its long-delayed DreamWorks debut, "Commencement," on May 14. Korn frontman Jonathan Davis sings on first single "The Key to Gramercy Park."
