“We’re looking forward to going on tour this summer and bringing our friends, Evanescence, out,” said Korn singer Jonathan Davis. “Whenever Amy comes to one of our shows, I always love seeing her on the side of the stage watching the whole set and rocking out. We’re gonna have a great time on this tour, and we can’t wait to see you there.” Evanescence’s Amy Lee added, “I fell hard into Korn’s music in high school. It was an inspiration during the formation of my own band. The chances we’ve had to play together over the years are special, a part of our history. They remain one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen. It’s an honor and a thrill to go out with our friends again, our first full tour together since ‘07. We’re all really looking forward to this.”
Korn stormed out of Bakersfield, California, in the mid 90s with a couple of heavy metal albums, Korn, and, Life is Peachy, brand new and innovative, the band ushered in a whole new scene. Combining hard-edged guitars with house-shaking bass and glass-shattering drums with elements of hip-hop, Korn was at the forefront of "nu metal" or "rap rock." Songs like "Blind," "Got the Life," "Freak on a Leash," and "Falling Away from Me" remain rock radio staples and have influenced a generation of introspective and somber rock bands. The current lineup features founding members James "Munky" Shaffer, on rhythm guitar, Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu on bass, Brian "Head" Welch on lead guitar, and backing vocals, and lead singer Jonathan Davis, with the addition of drummer Ray Luzier.
Formed in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1995, Evanescence is lead singer, pianist, and keyboardist Amy Lee, guitarist and baking singers Troy McLawhorn and Jen Majura, with bassist Tim McCord, and drummer Will Hunt. Their fourth studio album, The Bitter Truth, was released in March 2021, and is the band's first full album of new material since their self-titled third album in 2011, charting at number 11 on the Billboard 200, number 2 on the rock Albums chart, and number 1 on the Hard Rock Albums chart.
