It's rumored that Korn singer Jonathan Davis is planning to release a new solo album in 2018 and will also tour in support of it. Davis is already confirmed to appear on his own at Hellfest Open Air in Clisson, France, with more touring in both Europe and North America expected. Further details on the album and Davis' live plans are yet to come.
- Davis has recorded and toured on his own intermittently over the years.
- He has composed music for soundtracks, most notably Queen Of The Damned, and has toured and DJed frequently over the years as his alter ego JDevil.
- Davis spoke more about his secret identity: "Yeah, he's my alter ego. It's everything that represents indulgence and being yourself and just evilness in a good way. It just fit for me. It's just like me unleashed, doing anything I want to do in the way I want to do it, and it's a project that doesn't interfere with Korn in any way, and it's music that I love making, and it's definitely a trip."
- Korn's last album, The Serenity Of Suffering, came out in 2016.
- Next August marks the 20th anniversary of Korn's 1998 breakthrough album Follow The Leader. Guitarist Brian "Head" Welch indicated in a recent interview that the band is mulling over plans to celebrate that milestone.
