Jonathan Davis thanks fans for making ‘pain bearable’ during difficult time as he starts vocals on KoRn’s new album

"What I’m going thru has not been easy by any means"

Jonathan Davis has thanked fans for their support since his wife died, and with it has provided an update about KoRn‘s new album.

The nu-metal legend, who last year released his debut solo record, posted an image of himself recording vocals for what will be the band’s 13th album.

Alongside the photo shared yesterday (January 6), Davis wrote: “I want to thank you all for your kind words over the last couple months what I’m going thru has not been easy by any means. You all helped make the pain bearable. In return I promise to give you my all on this amazing new @korn_official record we all can heal together. #recordingvocals”

Davis’ estranged wife, Deven Davis, died in August 2018 from an accidental overdose. He later issued a statement explaining that Deven, “had a very serious mental illness and her addiction was a side effect.”

In December last year, KoRn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch gave an update about the forthcoming record.

He told Consequence of Sound that “fans are going to be pleasantly surprised by the album” and added that the band have “some amazing tricks up our sleeves.”

Welch also looked back on the previous 12 months, saying: “We all have our lives, our personal lives, and some of these guys have young children, so we decided to just take a year off, and just kind of take our time. Everyone is really enjoying time at home with their kids, so we work and then we take a break, and we work, and take a break.”

He added that the band would “love to get it out before the end of [2019].”
