Congratulations to Korn…#1 on Mainstream Rock Chart for the 1st Time
Just last week Korn’s Never Never hit #1 on the Active Rock Charts for the first time ever in their career….this week Korn’s Never Never hits #1 on the Mainstream Rock Charts for the first time ever in the 20 years they’ve been around!
— Korn: The veteran band collects its first No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock airplay chart, as “Never Never” rises 3-1. Of the band’s previous 25 visits to the tally dating to its first in 1998, it had risen as high as No. 3 with 2006’s “Twisted Transistor.”
KORN BLOW UP RADIO AS THEY CAPTURE THE #1 SPOT ON THE ACTIVE ROCK AIRPLAY CHART WITH THEIR SINGLE “NEVER NEVER”
THE SONG–FROM THE BAND’S 12TH TOP TEN ALBUM AND FIRST INDEPENDENT RELEASE OUTSIDE A MAJOR LABEL– ALSO VAULTS TO THE #2 POSITION ON THE ROCK CHART BAND IS GARNERING SOME OF THE BIGGEST RADIO SUCCESS IN THEIR CAREER
CO-HEADLINING ARENA TOUR WITH ROB ZOMBIE “THE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DREADS TOUR!” HAPPENING NOW
KORN are conquering radio as they capture the #1 spot on the Active Rock airplay chart with their single “Never Never” from their eleventh studio album THE PARADIGM SHIFT (Prospect Park). At the same time, “Never Never” has vaulted to the #2 position on the Mainstream Rock airplay chart. Having already sold over 30 million albums, the Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum hard rock innovators are garnering some of their biggest radio success of their career as they continue to artistically evolve in new and fresh ways. It should also be noted this is their first independent release outside of a major label.This latest news comes just as electrifying band’s co-headline arena tour with Rob Zombie–the aptly titled “THE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DREADS TOUR!”–launched last night (November 3) in Reno, NV (press release here: http://tinyurl.com/mypagga)
As previously reported, KORN–Jonathan Davis [Vocals], James “Munky” Shaffer [Guitar], Brian “Head” Welch [Guitar], Reggie “Fieldy” Arvizu [Bass] and Ray Luzier [Drums]–have also scored their 12th Top 10 Album with THE PARADIGM SHIFT (released October 8) which entered the Billboard albums chart at #8. According to Billboard.com, “…this debut ties KORN with Dave Matthews Band for the most top 10 albums by a band in the SoundScan era (May 1991-present). Among all acts in that time span, George Strait has logged the most, with 18.”
KORN are forever moving forward artistically. The “Never Never” single merges shuddering synths, entrancing ethereal guitars, and a funky beat for one of the group’s most irresistible anthems. Once again, they tread the line between electronic music and hard rock flawlessly. The band performed the song October 7 on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (http://tinyurl.com/mseulju).
For the “Never Never” video, the band teamed with director Giovanni Bucci who sets KORN performing against a surrealistic clock. It plays into the theme of love gone bad through the unexpected perspective of time as front man Jonathan Davis sings “I’m never going to love again.” View the video now at: http://vevo.ly/UaDV41
The band also premiered their second video “Love & Meth” from the new album on Rollingstone.com (10/16). Watch the haunting video directed by Giovanni Bucci here: http://tinyurl.com/ovq43vd
