The 30-date trek gets underway July 18 at the Austin360 Amphitheatre in Austin, TX and will go on to hit cities including Nashville, Holmdel, Cincinnati, and Denver before closing out with a final show in Mountain View, CA on September 4.
Korn’s most recent release, 2016’s The Serenity of Suffering, earned the veteran group their 10th Grammy nomination. The band has been hard at work in the studio in recent months wrapping up their highly anticipated 12th studio album, which is due for release sometime this year.
Alice in Chains will be hitting the road in support of their sixth studio album Rainer Fog, which hit shelves this past summer. The album reached the number one spot across Billboard’s Rock, Alternative, and Hard Music Charts, as well as earning the group a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album.
The upcoming run of shows will feature metal band Underoath as an opening act for the entirety of the tour, with hip hop group Ho99o9 and rock band The Fever 333 making appearances as special guests on select dates.
Who Is Korn?
Korn emerged in the 1990s as one of the most provocative groups to rise during the post-grunge era. The band released two full length albums before making their mainstream breakthrough in 1998 with their third album Follow the Leader, spawning two massive hit singles, “Freak on a Leash” and “Got the Life.” Follow the Leader propelled Korn to the top of the charts, eventually earning a five-time platinum certification from the RIAA. A winning combination of heavy rock and alt- metal, blended with hip-hop influences and dark lyrical content placed Korn at the forefront of the nu metal movement, and the group continued to enjoy commercial success in the years that followed, releasing subsequent albums Issues (1999), Untouchables (2000), Take a Look in the Mirror (2003), and See You on the Other Side (2005) to continued critical praise and chart-topping success. Korn has sold over 35 million albums worldwide, earned two Grammy awards, and several platinum and multi-platinum certifications, cementing their status as pioneers in heavy rock and the nu metal genre.
Who Is Alice in Chains?
Alice in Chains stepped into the spotlight at the height of the grunge movement, emitting a Seattle-heavy vibe while still creating a sound that set them apart from the rest of the crowd. With their roots laid in heavy metal (not punk like that of their alt-rock peers), the group rose to international fame on the strength of their breakthrough debut album Facelift in 1990. The album would go on to earn a Grammy nomination, becoming the first album of the grunge movement to be certified gold in September 1991 (it would later achieve double-platinum status). Facelift’s success set the tone for what would be a long and rewarding career for Alice in Chains. The band has released six full-length albums to date, all of which have charted in the Top 10 (two number ones) on the Billboard 200, selling over 30 million units worldwide. Their distinct musical style and harmonizing vocals have placed Alice in Chains at the front of the alt-metal and grunge genres, earning the record-breaking rockers 11 Grammy nominations and the title of one the most influential and successful music acts of the 1990s.
