Jonathan Davis Lowers the Veil on Black Labyrinth

Jonathan Davis Debut Solo Album and Tour

Release Date: May 25th, 2018

If you’re a fan of metal music or grew up as a teenager in the 90’s, the name Jonathan Davis probably sounds familiar to you. After all he is the frontman for a band that transcended the metal genre as we know it, the band Korn lead by Jonathan was and still is a voice for a tormented generation filled with angst.

Throughout Jonathan Davis’s 20 or so year career, he has been able to find success through pushing boundaries both with and without Korn. He’s worked on film scores for movies like The Queen of the Damned, various major video games and even collaborating with artist like Skrillex, Steve Aoki and Linkin Park to name a few. All that experience and ability to break out of his comfort zone is what makes a solo album like Black Labyrinth possible.

Black Labyrinth is Jonathan Davis’s debut solo album, something years in the making. It is all part of Jonathan’s natural evolution which, like the album, is diverse and progressive. The album’s first single “What It Iswas well received both by critics and fans. The song debuted as the #1 most added single on rock radio. Other tracks from the album like “Final Days” are melodic and atmospheric, while the song “Underneath My Skin” is a rock anthem of sorts. Then there are songs like “What You Believe” and “Everyone” which will have a familiarity between the vocals, synths and guitars to long time fans of Korn.

Black Labyrinth will be released on May 25th, 2018 via label Sumerian Records, physical pre-orders for the album are available at HERE or HERE. Digital copies of the album can be pre-ordered on Itunes HERE. You can hear 30 second song clip previews of the album now by checking out the video below. The album’s artwork was done by artist David Stoupakis who has previously done album cover art/artwork for Korn, Mastadon and Kyng.

Jonathan Davis will be a busy man this Spring. In addition to the album release, he will be bringing the show on the road. Jonathan will embark on a North American headlining tour beginning April 6th in Portland, OR.
