Korn sign to Roadrunner

By | Published on Friday 26 March 2010

Korn have apparently signed a new deal with Roadrunner Records.

The band’s last two studio albums were released by EMI/Virgin, the result of a 360-degree style deal which saw the metallers get paid a $25 million advance in exchange for a cut of various revenues, including record sales, licensing, touring and merchandise revenues. The second album, which was left untitled, was their least successful to date, which may be why the band are no longer working with EMI.

Anyway, guitarist James ‘Munky’ Schaffer wrote on the band’s Modlife site on Tuesday: “Who wants to know something first? Korn has just signed to Roadrunner Records! [We’re] label mates with Slipknot! It rules!”
