“Nu-metal legends Korn formed in the early 1990s and quickly rose to prominence as one of the genre’s most influential outfits. Beginning with early hit albums like its self-titled debut and 1996’s multi-Platinum follow-up, “Life Is Peachy,” Korn began building a broad fan base thanks to its aggressive and inventive sound. Several decades and albums later, Korn continues to be one of the most innovative nu metal outfits recording music today. During every Korn tour, fans are treated to heavy-hitting live performances of the band’s greatest career hits and newest songs, including favorites like “Blind,” “Freak on a Leash,” and “Got the Life.” In 2015, the band returned to the studio to record their 12th LP. The Serenity of Suffering was released in late 2016. It featured the lead single “Rotting in Vain” and a guest appearance by Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor on “A Different World.” The set peaked at number four on the Billboard 200, their highest showing since 2010. In the midst of a global tour, they began recording their 13th album, The Nothing, with returning producer Nick Raskulinecz. Heavily influenced by the death of Davis’ wife in 2018, the emotionally intense set included the singles “You’ll Never Find Me” and “Cold.”
“Pennsylvania hard rock outfit Breaking Benjamin debuted with a brand of metal-tinged alternative that came to define the sound of mainstream rock in the early 2000s. Over the years, multiple lineup changes would impact the sound of the band, which developed into a more arena-friendly act by the late 2000s. Originally indebted to the minor-chord dirges of grunge rockers like Alice in Chains and the menacing darkness of nu-metal acts like Godsmack and Chevelle, Breaking Benjamin became one of the most popular rock groups in the United States, scoring a number one with the single “Breath” in 2007 and topping the Billboard 200 in 2015 with Dark Before Dawn. In addition, three of their albums — 2004’s We Are Not Alone, 2006’s Phobia, and 2009’s Dear Agony — have been certified platinum in the U.S.”
“BONES UK are on a mission of intent. “We want our music to empower, to make you feel like you’ve found your home, your gang, your army,” the London raised/LA based duo confidently assert. “We want to help you get out of bed in the morning – to be proud of every scar or beautiful imperfection, on or inside your body. We want our music to make you stand on your bed and scream “FUCK FITTING IN!”” Made up of vocalist Rosie Bones and virtuoso guitarist Carmen Vandenberg, the newly GRAMMY-nominated BONES UK don’t waste a second of their self-titled debut album, confronting everything from the beauty industrial-complex to toxic masculinity and music-scene sexism; embedding each track with choruses primed for passionate shouting-along. In between such epic tours and award nominations, the band have amassed further notoriety for their parties and various curated events hosted in across multiple global cities, each one a celebration of inclusivity and letting one’s inner ‘Filthy-Freak’ fly! They are also due to release their own 29 minute short film in January and are busily plotting their ways to use the upcoming film festival circuit as another vehicle to spread their gospel to an even wider audience.”
