On April 24, long-running hard rock/metal band Korn will host KORN: MONUMENTAL, an immersive global live stream event from the set of Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience, promising a selection of fan favorites, deep cuts and songs from the group’s 2019 album, The Nothing (as touring for that record was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic).

Per a news release:

Tickets for this landmark global streaming event are on sale at www.KornLive.com at an early bird discount through Saturday, March 27th.  Fans can also purchase bundles and V.I.P. experiences, including exclusive merchandise, limited-edition autographed posters, and a virtual meet & greet with the entire band, which will be available as a digital download. KORN: MONUMENTAL will be available to stream for 72 hours through April 27th at 11:59 PM EDT. Please note, this is a fully virtual event, there will be no in-person attendance permitted.

KORN vocalist Jonathan Davis remarked “We hope you take part in this experience with us. And though it is not the same as performing live with you here, we still want to bring you some great music and a fun show.”

Tickets start at $20.

And a trailer:

The Nothing, released in September 2019, is Korn’s thirteenth studio album and is an especially intense listen for the band. From our album review:

Thirteen albums in, Korn doesn’t have to impress anybody. The band’s commercial peak was reached in the late 1990s, when their genre of dark “nu-metal” was all the rage. Since then, Korn’s tried new things, doing an electronic/dubstep-inspired album, sure, but mostly staying true to their signature sound of down-tuned guitars, crunching, metallic bass rhythms and Davis’ unmistakable presence on the microphone.

That’s very much the case with The Nothing, but it’s evident that working with producer Nick Raskulinecz (who produced 2016’s The Serenity of Suffering) brought out the best in the band, allowing them to tap into the strongest elements of their repertoire for songs that are both brutal and catchy — a dichotomy that has exemplified the band at its best over the years.
