Korn lead singer Jonathan Davis recently announced his upcoming world tour. The 47-year-old musician will also be releasing his first solo album this year.
Davis' shows in North America will kick off on April 6 in Portland and will end in Camden, New Jersey on May 19. The European leg of Davis' tour will commence on June 1 in Nuremberg, Germany and will end on June 22 in France. Other cities that Davis will visit include Seattle on April 7, Vancouver on April 9, Los Angeles on April 13, and more.
Jonathan Davis' Album Will Be Available This Summer
Last week, Davis dropped his first solo single, "What It Is," with the song's official music video. The track is part of the singer's untitled album, which he started working on in 2007. The singer's album will be available this summer.
"It took me 10 years, and I'm so glad this project is finally out. It is something that is very close to me and I'm excited for the world to finally hear it. This time, I'm pulling something out of the audience. I've bared my soul for so [expletive] long, I thought it'd be really cool to pull listeners in a different direction for once," said Davis.
Korn Inspires Fans
Before embarking on his solo career, Davis opened up about Korn and said that he was just basically a kid when they made their first record. The response to their first album was mostly positive, and Davis said he is pleased that his pain helped a lot of people.
Davis said that even though Korn was considered the black sheep of the music industry, he and his bandmates are happy to have touched the hearts of a lot of people. The singer has lost count of how many times fans told him how Korn helped them get through their biggest obstacles in life.
"We have sick fans whose last dying wish is to come and hang out with us. This is [expletive] heavy. How do you express yourself when someone says: 'I'm going to die and I want to meet you before I do?'" said David.
Korn has released over 20 albums since 1993. Neidermayer's Mind was the group's first album, and it was followed by their self-titled album in 1994. Three years later, Korn dropped Who Then Now? The group released another album in 1999, All Mixed Up, and the group continued to release original music from 2000 until 2016.
