Roadrunner Records have announced that multi-platinum, genre-defining hard rock band Korn will be joining their roster, right in time to release a new album in June.
Korn III – Remember Who You Are is the band’s ninth album overall and their first album for their new label. In a suggestion that the band are moving back to their heavier, more explosive roots, the record was produced by Ross Robinson, who also manned the boards for the band’s definitive self-titled 1994 debut, as well as the follow up, 1996’s Life is Peachy.
“We called this record Korn III – Remember Who You Are because it really feels like a return to that attitude we had on the first two records,” bassist Fieldy said. “And when it came to putting this record out, we could not think of anyone better to help us than Roadrunner, the only label that even understands rock music anymore.”
The last couple of releases from Korn have been mediocre at best, so hopefully Remember Who You Are will be a welcome return to form for the rage rock/nu-metal pioneers.
Korn’s III – Remember Who You Are will be released in June 2010 through Roadrunner Records.
