Korn are gearing up to announce something, teasing fans with a cryptic message on social media this morning.

Over the last few months, fans have been eagerly awaiting news from Korn in regards to their new album.

Their first since 2016’s The Serenity of Suffering, the group have been recording their new album for quite some time now, with guitarist Brian “Head” Welch having previously described the new record as “so special”.

“I’ve never seen Jonathan [Davis, vocals] work so hard on a record since [2002’s] Untouchables,” Head began. “He’s always involved — don’t get me wrong — but he has a different passion, because he went through a lot last year.”

“He has time, he has energy, he has pain, and he just grabbed the record. It’s so special.”

However, when asked about whether or not the album would be released sooner rather than later, the Korn guitarist noted that some label politics had come into play.

“We are kind of in a little argument with the label about the date, so we’re trying to keep it all peaceful — things happen,” Head explained. “But it’s coming out.”

Now, it looks like we might finally be getting some news about the forthcoming release.

Sharing a series of posts on Instagram this morning, Korn urged their followers to sign up to their website for updates, before teasing the dates “06.26” and “Wednesday”, indicating that something would be announced on Wednesday, June 26th.

With the group currently booked out through July, August, and September with touring commitments, it’s unlikely that the news we receive will be related to a tour and more likely related to a new record.

While the artwork accompanying these posts is unclear, they all form part of a larger piece –ostensibly created by Justin Woolard – that will likely be related to Wednesday’s announcement.

Of course, Australians won’t be receiving this news until Thursday, which is undoubtedly a bit of a bummer, but will make our trek to the end of the week feel all the more easier.

Korn last visited Australia as part of the Download Festival in 2018. Check out our recap of the festival here.
