All is not well in the bleak video for “You’ll Never Find Me,” the first single from Korn‘s upcoming 13th studio album, The Nothing.
The Andrej Gavriss-directed clip that debuted on Thursday morning (July 18) finds the long-running nu-metalers rocking a cracked desert expanse at sunrise as a story about a mysterious meteor unfolds around them.
The clip stars Black Panter‘s Roland Kilumbu as a young version of scientist Guyron Barnes — and D’Artagnan Woods (Cycles) as a slightly older version — who appears to rapidly de-age (or is it re-age?) as he does experiments on a blue crystal extracted from a meteor crater, ending with him covered in a deadly green moss that destroys his lab partners.
The Nothing is due out on Sept. 13 on Roadrunner Records/Elektra as the follow-up to 2016’s The Serenity of Suffering, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and received a Grammy nomination for best metal performance for the single “Rotting in Vain.”
In a statement, singer Jonathan Davis said of the new album: “Deep within our Earth lives an extraordinary force. Very few are aware of the magnitude and significance of this place where good/evil, dark/light, bliss/torment, loss/gain and hope/despair all exist as one, pulling at us every moment of our lives. It’s not something we can choose to navigate, but rather an awareness of this ‘presence’ that surrounds us with every breath, as if we are being watched at every moment. It’s the place where black and white energies attach themselves to our souls and shape our emotion, choices, perspective and ultimately our very existence. There is a miraculous and small realm within this vortex, and it’s the only place where balance between these dynamic and polarizing forces exists — where the soul finds its refuge. Welcome to… The Nothing.”
