Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum hard rock innovators KORN will unveil their 11th studio album, THE PARADIGM SHIFT, in stores and via digital retailers on October 8, 2013 on Prospect Park.


THE PARADIGM SHIFT marks the emotional return of co-founding guitarist Brian "Head" Welch for his first album with KORN since 2003's Take a Look in the Mirror, and it serves as the follow-up to the band’s 2011 critically acclaimed trend-setting dubstep metal hybrid, The Path of Totality, which debuted Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was named Revolver Magazine's "Album of the Year."


THE PARADIGM SHIFT is also KORN’s first time working with super producer Don Gilmore [Linkin Park’s The Hybrid Theory, etc.] who recorded the album with the band at Buck Owens' studio in their original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles's famed NRG Recording Studios. They initially announced Head's return via a captivating clip on and went on to discuss the reunion together in this in-depth interview on


The rock luminaries recently embarked on their reunion run stateside headlining the sold out Rock on the Range Festival which drew over 40,000 fans in Columbus, OH and making stops at Rocklahoma and more. Currently, they are raging across Europe, playing coveted main stage spots at Download, Rock am Ring, Rock im Park, and more.


THE PARADIGM SHIFT holds a special significance for these musicians. Guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer explains, "It's a term encompassing different perspectives. You can view a piece of art from one angle and it takes on a certain image. If you look from another angle, it's a completely different image. We liken that to KORN in 2013. With Head back in the fold, all of the elements fans have loved since day one are there, but we're interpreting them from a new perspective. It's a bigger, brighter, and bolder KORN."


Be prepared for another staggering, seismic and soaring offering from KORN
