Korn will release "The Paradigm Shift," their eleventh studio album, on October 1. The album marks the return of guitartist Brian "Head" Welch, who took an eight-year hiatus to get clean from drugs and find religion. The experience is documented in his 2005 autobiography, "Save Me from Myself."
"With Head back in the fold, all of the elements fans have loved since day one are there, but we're interpreting them from a new perspective," guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer said the band's statement. "It's a bigger, brighter, and bolder Korn."
Welch wasn't the only member battling demons prior to the creation of this record. Frontman Jonathan Davis came into the studio after immediately finishing up a stint in rehab to address his struggles with drug abuse.
