Legendary rockers Korn have released “Forgotten,” their first offering of 2022 and the second song from their upcoming studio album Requiem, due February 4th via Loma Vista Recordings. “Forgotten” arrives with a visualizer created by EFFIXX, who did the VFX work in the video for Korn’s first Requiem single “Start The Healing,” which was directed by Tim Saccenti (Flying Lotus, Run The Jewels, Depeche Mode). “Start The Healing” now sits in the Top 5 at Mainstream Rock charts.
Over the last week, “Forgotten” has been teased via easter eggs across the internet with different stems from the song hidden on their website, newsletter, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and Makersplace in preparation for the single’s drop.
“Forgotten” arrives on the heels of Korn’s 2022 tour announcement, which begins March 4th and is produced by Live Nation. Korn will be accompanied by very special guests Chevelle and Code Orange on the 19-date arena tour. Tickets on sale HERE.
Korn is also performing four nights with System Of A Down beginning on January 31st in Phoenix followed by a stop in San Diego on February 1st and two sold-out shows in Los Angeles on February 4th and 5th at Banc Of California stadium. Tickets on sale HERE.

Korn changed the world with the release of their self-titled debut album. It was a record that would pioneer a genre, while the band’s enduring success points to a larger cultural moment. The FADER notes, “There was an unexpected opening in the pop landscape and Korn articulated a generational coming-of-angst for a claustrophobic, self-surveilled consciousness. Korn became the soundtrack for a generation’s arrival as a snarling, thrashing, systemically-restrained freak show.”
Since forming, Korn has sold 40 million albums worldwide, collected two Grammys, toured the world countless times, and set many records in the process that will likely never be surpassed. Korn has continued to push the limits of the rock, alternative and metal genres, while remaining a pillar of influence for legions of fans and generations of artists around the globe.
The level of Korn’s reach transcends accolades and platinum certifications. They are “a genuine movement in a way bands cannot be now,” attests The Ringer. They represent a new archetype and radical innovation, their ability to transcend genre makes barriers seem irrelevant.
