Korn, Gojira, and Spiritbox to Perform Shows in Camden and Newark

(CAMDEN, NJ) -- Following the announcement and sellout of their milestone 30th anniversary show in Los Angeles, two-time GRAMMY-award winning band Korn, announced their 2024 run of shows across North America. The rock cultural icons will embark on the 25-date Live Nation produced tour featuring special guests, GRAMMY-nominated band Gojira and Canadian heavy metal group Spiritbox. The tour comes to New Jersey for shows at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion in Camden on Friday, September 20, 2024 and the Prudential Center in Newark on Monday, September 23rd.

Korn changed the world with the release of their self-titled debut album in 1994. It was a record that would pioneer a genre, and blur others-leading into a larger cultural movement. Since forming, Korn has sold more than 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.

Gojira bend extremes to their whim, emerging as an entrancing enigma equally driven by intuition and intensity. Balancing metallic proficiency, primal grooves, and otherworldly melodies, the French quartet continue to facilitate heavy music’s progression into the future by burning down all boundaries. As such, they’ve unassumingly risen to the forefront of the genre as quiet trailblazers. Thus far, they’ve earned three GRAMMY® Award nominations and even claimed a coveted spot on Rolling Stone‘s “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time” with 2005’s landmark From Mars To Sirius. Their catalog spans groundbreaking records such as L’Enfant Sauvage [2012], Magma [2016], and their most recent studio album Fortitude [2021]. With restless creativity and infinite vision, Gojira always inspire thought, awaken passion, and incite catharsis as heavy music’s most unconventional, yet undeniable force.

Courtney LaPlante’s journey with Spiritbox has been a whirlwind of unexpected twists, from their humble beginnings to becoming a breakout sensation in the metal scene, as seen in their recent collaborations and Grammy nomination. Their latest EP, ‘The Fear Of Fear’, delves into themes of existential struggle and self-discovery, showcasing the band’s penchant for innovation and introspection. With each release, Spiritbox refuses to be confined to a single genre, embracing creative freedom and a commitment to personal growth. As they embark on the next chapter of their musical evolution, one thing is certain: the world of heavy music eagerly awaits their next move.
