Korn are working on a new album, their first since guitarist Brian Welch returned to the band earlier this year
Korn are recording a new album.
The 'Blind' nu-metal group have returned to the studio to record the follow-up to 2011's dubstep influenced 'The Path to Trinity'.
The band - Jonathan Davis, James Shaffer, Reginald Arvizu and Ray Luzier - have also been joined in the studio by guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch, an original member of the group who left in 2005 and found God, but returned in January this year.
He told Rolling Stone magazine: "We knew we would have a blast playing together because we love each other so much, but we really wanted to make sure the music felt right before we committed to making a whole album together.
"But since we got in the studio, everything just started pouring out, now I can't wait until our fans hear this stuff!"
No material from the band's eleventh album has been previewed, but Brian - who is also in another band, Love and Death - has previously said he'd like it to sound like their 1994 self-titled debut.
He said: "I think that would be kind of cool to do [an album] like the very first."
The as-yet-untitled album is set for release at the end of summer after Korn have completed a world tour which starts in May.
