I hate when bands do this.
Don’t re-sell your fans something. That’s just bad form, bro.
Yet, Korn will do it again, this time issuing an expanded version of their most recent album, The Paradigm Shift.
The opening of the new version of the LP will boast a new song called “Hater,” which will also be released as a digital single June 23.
Band frontman Jonathan Davis tells Billboard.com:
“Everyone has someone who hates on you ’cause you have something they want. It’s really, like, the first empowering song I’ve ever written. The lyrics are: ‘You can’t bring me down/I’ve already had my life turned upside down/I ride a downward spiral round and round/But I keep flying, I keep fighting/Don’t ever bring me down.’ That’s like the most positive shit I’ve ever written. And everyone who’s heard it loves it, and I think it’s going to give people who get down on people picking on them and hating them, like, ‘Fuck this! I don’t give a fuck what you think. I don’t give a fuck what you say. You just fuckin’ are a hater.’ I think people will relate with that.”
Another song that was kept from the album, “Hercules,” makes the new cut.
Davis also said he continues to work on Killbot:
“It’s like a digital metal record, but when I start singing the stuff there’s some heavy rock-dub shit going on, and I got a straight pop tune. It’s all over the place. It’s really cool and I’m working on this week to get it done before we go on tour. I’ve got six songs more to do. It’s some different shit that you’ve never heard before. It’s really cool.”
