11th studio album confirmed...

Korn are set to release their new studio album 'The Paradigm Shift' later this year.

Nu-metal may be about as trendy as wearing a traffic cone on your head, but somehow Clash can't quite shake our teenage memories of relishing - utterly relishing - each new release.

Take Korn. Sure, the ideas aren't as strong as they once were, but the promise of a new album still fills us with a faint sense of hope. New studio album - the band's eleventh to date - will be named 'The Paradigm Shift' and will be released on September 30th.

Intriguingly, it marks the return of co-founding guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch for the first time since 2003. Working with Ron Gilmore, Korn recorded the material at Buck Owens' studio in their original hometown Bakersfield and at the NRG Recording Studios in Los Angeles.

Guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer introduces the new album: "It's a term encompassing different perspectives. You can view a piece of art from one angle and it takes on a certain image. If you look from another angle, it's a completely different image. We liken that to KORN in 2013. 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. It's a bigger, brighter, and bolder KORN."

'The Paradigm Shift' is set to be released on September 30th.
