See Korn Debut New Songs Live, Play Classics at Album Release Show

Intimate 'The Nothing' event saw band backed by acrobatic aerial performer

After months of anticipation, Korn celebrated the release of their 13th studio album, The Nothingon September 13th with a special intimate show at ShowBiz Studios in Los Angeles. The band performed a variety of classic cuts from throughout their career, and also debuted three of the new record's songs live for the first time: "Cold," "Can You Hear Me" and the exceptionally emotional "Finally Free." 

Throughout the nine-song set, seen in fan-filmed footage above and below, the band performed on a relatively tiny stage covered in large carpets while an aerial performer writhed and swayed as the ensnared figure on the album's cover art, a person wrapped and trapped in black cords. 

As Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer told us in a recent interview, The Nothing was a particularly challenging and cathartic album for the band to make, coming as it did shortly after the death of singer Jonathan Davis' wife Deven from a drug overdose. "Finally Free," for one, directly addresses her passing.
