Jonathan Davis Announces Debut Solo Album “Black Labyrinth”

Korn frontman, Jonathan Davis will be releasing his highly anticipated debut solo album, Black Labyrinth on May 25 via Sumerian Records. Pre-orders for the physical album are available now, at jonathandavis.com or sumerianmerch.com.  Listen to a teaser of the album below.

Diverse and progressive, Black Labyrinth represents a natural evolution for Davis. In addition to the album’s first single, “What It Is,” the new album includes “Final Days,” a melodic and atmospheric track, accentuated by subtle hints of sitar and tabla, the straightforward arena-rock anthem “Underneath My Skin,” and ten other tracks primarily recorded live to tape, a departure from Korn’s heavily calculated, meticulous, studio approach to creation. Longtime fans of Korn will still find the familiarity of the band’s unique and unforgettable vocals, synths and commanding guitars in key track’s like “What You Believe” and “Everyone.”

Inspired in part by the Ganzfeld Experiment, and the out of body experiments and hallucinations that often accompany it, Davis focused on religion, consumerism and apathy throughout the album. “There’s a level of enlightenment I want to achieve,” he confesses regarding Black Labyrinth. “With all of the bullshit going, everyone is stuck on their fucking cell phones. This takes us way out of that. No matter how hard you try to fight bad things in your life, life will be what it is. It’s up to you to accept that, combat it, and move forward, or it’s up to you to be in denial. Then, it becomes a thorn in your side until you finally deal with it. This is it. Just deal with it.”
