Korn Unveil Lineup for 2013 Family Values Festival
Last week, Korn excited fans with a short video teaser announcing that they were resurrecting 'Family Values' as a one-night-only festival. While the teaser featured bands like Rammstein, Stone Sour and Deftones, it turns out that those acts were just a celebration of past Family Values tours. Now, Korn have revealed the actual lineup for the 2013 Family Values Festival.
The one-off event will take place at the 1st Bank Center in Denver, Colo., on Oct. 5, with tickets going on sale this Friday, Sept. 6.
“We wanted to celebrate our new album release in a big way since Head is back and since this record means so much to us. What better way but to bring back Family Values and the Korn Kage for one big f---in’ special night!," says Korn singer Jonathan Davis.
The Family Values show occurs smack in the middle of Korn's upcoming North American tour with Asking Alexandria and Love & Death. That trek kicks off Sept. 26 in Philadelphia.
Both the tour and the Family Values festival show will serve as a celebration of Korn's new album, 'The Paradigm Shift,' which hits stores on Oct. 8. The disc marks the return of founding Korn guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch to the group. In addition to the first single, 'Never Never,' the album also features the blistering track 'Love & Meth.' You can hear a clip of the latter song in the most recent edition of 'HeAd's KoRner,' which is Welch's monthly column for Loudwire.
