JDEVIL, the nefarious DJ alter ego of legendary KORN frontman Jonathan Davis, has joined forces with Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie on their co-headlining “Twins of Evil” U.S. tour launching September 28. JDEVIL will perform DJ sets packed with his brand of chaotic electro-metal. This news comes on the heels of JDEVIL’s recent signing with cutting-edge label Dim Mak for the release of his debut EP (details TBA).
“I like to think of JDEVIL as the ‘anti-christ’ of EDM,” says Davis. ”To play alongside Zombie and Manson is going to be a f**king sinister night all around, and an unbelievable theatrical experience. I can’t wait.”
On August 7, prior to the kick off of the “Twins of Evil” tour, Mondo Sex Head, an album featuring new and unique remixes of Rob Zombie classics by some of today’s top producers/DJs, will be released (Universal Music Enterprises/UMe) featuring JDEVIL’s remix of White Zombie’s “Thunder Kiss ‘65” (J-Devil Number of the Beast Remix). It is available now on iTunes: http://bit.ly/MqcA3u.
DJing since Davis was 16 years old (years before he was to ever become one of the most notorious faces in rock), JDEVIL has created a sound that is a natural progression from KORN’s tenth offering, 2011’s The Path of Totality. The album saw the band collaborate with dubstep pioneers Skrillex, 12th Planet, Datsik, Excision, Downlink, Kill the Noise, Noisia and Feed Me. It yielded two hit singles with Skrillex, “Get Up!” and “Narcissistic Cannibal,” along withKill the Noise on the latter, and was met with critical and fan adoration. In the meantime, he unleashed his first formal remix, a gut wrenchingly catchy take on Hollywood Undead’s “Hear Me Now,” released as part of American Tragedy Redux.
JDEVIL is another side of the enigmatic singer who thrives on chaos and contradictions. He may reside in the darkest corners of Davis’ psyche, but he’s always ready to party. He may be spinning dance music on stage, but he lets out catastrophic screams at all the right moments. He may have black eyes and teeth, but he’s as close to Davis’ heart as it gets. His DJ sets opens up the door to the ultimate celebration inside of the inferno. Are you ready?
