After months of anticipation, Korn celebrated the release of their 13th studio album, The Nothing, on 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.
