Watch KORN's "Insane" New Music Video...Written by James Zahn
On October 21, KORN will release their 12th studio album, THE SERENITY OF SUFFERING via Roadrunner Records.. As a longtime Korn fan (I first saw them on the infamous "Reckoning Day" Tour with Megadeth, Fear Factory and Flotsam & Jetsam back in '95), I'm digging what they've been putting out thus far, and with the first single, "Rotting in Vain" blowing up the charts, it's a little surprising that we're already getting a second single and video. "Insane" made its official debut over at Loudwire this morning, and you can now watch and listen below...
