After seven years together, Korn Again have become the world’s number one Korn tribute act. Initially formed in Liverpool in 2010 – Korn Again have since strived to replicate the raw and aggressive sound as well as the energy fuelled stage performance of nu-metal giants Korn . Watching Korn Again creates a reminiscence of seeing Korn when they first emerged pioneering the nu-metal genre in the early 90’s.
They have achieved great notoriety as a tribute by emulating Korn’s genre defining sound using the same instruments, amps and effects as the original band along with showcasing a custom made mic stand iconic to any Korn fan. The singer also plays the highland bag pipes live during their set, exactly as Korn’s frontman Jonathan Davis does for the intro to the song – ‘Shoots and Ladders’.
They have toured the UK extensively playing the likes of Liverpool’s world famous Cavern Club and the Krazyhouse (where Korn themselves once played in 1996) as well as numerous large scale festivals and well established venues.
Korn Again also has the stamp of approval from the original band, as they were joined on stage by Korn’s bassist ‘Fieldy’ and drummer Ray Luzier during a show in December 2016 to perform two of their biggest known hits – ‘Here To Stay’ and ‘Freak on a Leash’. News of this spread fast in the rock/metal media after KoRn posted an official video of the gig on the bands Facebook page –
Korn Again have since been featured in several major press outlets world wide such as NME, Metal Hammer, Alt Press and Kerrang to name a few.
In 2012 Korn guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer tweeted a promo shot of Korn Again dressed like the original band, emulating a well known poster that was shot during the first album. The tweet simply read: “Korn tribute band, wow… double take”. During the same year, the band were visited whilst performing on two different occasions by Skindred frontman Benji Webbe, who later in a radio interview expressed his very positive impression of the bands performance and likeness to Korn.
2017 will see the return of Korn Again’s ‘Family Values Tribute Show’, a joint headlined show played with Europe’s top Limp Bizkit tribute ‘Stiff Bizkit’. The show recreates the Nu metal extravaganza that was Korn’s Family Values Tour, which ran from 1998 – 2013. Both bands are set to hit the road for a national O2 Academy tour this Summer.
Like the original band Korn Again deliver an enthralling and intense performance without a stop for breath, a tribute act who take the musical and performance aspects of what they do very seriously, their attention to detail and authenticity is something to be witnessed and admired not only by Korn fans, but for anybody who appreciates live music. Their show is not to be missed.
