Korn sued by ex-drummer David Silveria

Silveria left the group in 2006

Korn‘s former drummer David Silveria is suing the group for money owed after his former bandmates decided not to take him back after a seven year hiatus.

A founding member, Silveria left Korn in 2006 and was replaced by Ray Luzier. Having attempted to end the break in 2013, the 42-year-old was told he would not be allowed to return.

According to TMZ reports, Silveria’s law suit says his leave was only ever intended to be temporary, and as he never gave up his ownership interest in the group, he’s owed a cut of profits made in his absence. Silveria is also upset that Korn member Brian Welch was allowed to rejoin the group in 2013, having departed in 2005.

Korn, sans Silveria, are due to perform their 1994 self-titled debut album in its entirety at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on July 15 and London’s O2 Academy Brixton on July 16. The album was released in October 1994 and produced by Ross Robinson. The band have since released 10 more studio albums, the most recent of which being 2013’s ‘The Paradigm Shift’.
