Earlier this year we announced that Korn frontman Jonathan Davis would be headed out on a solo tour, but would be sadly skipping the Alamo City.
Did the gods of nu metal hear our cries? Possibly, since the “Got The Life” singer recently announced the San Antonio date for his Black Labyrinth tour, which hits the Vibes Event Center on Sunday, October 28.
Not that we’re necessarily blasting Korn over here on the regular, but we’re not ashamed to admit that we definitely owned and listened to those first couple albums (come at us, hipsters). Anyway, Davis just released his solo album Back Labyrinth
on Sumerian Records, which is sort of weird since the label tends to be the home to mostly metal bands like San Antonio’s Upon A Burning Body. (Fun fact: Bone Thug's Bizzy Bone actually put a record out through the label in 2010.)
Incorporating acoustic guitars and synths, the new single “What It Is” is a step away from the heavy-effects, low-tune guitar stylings of Korn and is actually a pretty decent listen if you dig the active-rock genre. No meth-fueled jibberish on this one though.
Also on the bill are spooky gothic rockers The Birthday Massacre and electronic rock act Julien-K.
