‘Are you reeeeeeeaaaaaaady?’ That’s exactly how the brief 30-second clip teasing the 2013 Family Values Festival kicks off, with Korn’s Jonathan Davis growling the line at the top of his lungs.
While it’s been a long time since a Family Values tour has kicked up some dust, this 2013 event will be a one-off gig headlined by Korn and set to take place Oct. 5 at a yet-to-be-revealed location.
If the clip above is aimed to foreshadow the bands performing at the upcoming festival, fans will get to seeRammstein, Stone Sour, Limp Bizkit, Ice Cube, Deftones and of course, the main attraction, Korn. All of the aforementioned acts have that date open on their schedule except for Deftones, who are scheduled to perform on Avenged Sevenfold’s tour that day in Indianapolis. So that raises the question if this clip is a preview of what’s to come or a celebration of past acts.
Rock fans may remember the annual Family Values tour, which was the brainchild of Korn. The trek kicked off its inaugural run back in 1998, combining the best of rock and hip hop with additional treks in 1999, 2001, 2006, 2007, making it one of the most anticipated rock tours each year. Throughout its existence, the Family Values tour offered up bands like Rammstein, Limp Bizkit, Primus, Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park, Evanescence and DMX, just to name a few.
While the video teaser is short on details, it definitely raises a lot of excitement over the new festival. The festival date falls on an off day mixed in with the string of intimate club dates the band recently revealed. Stay tuned as the festival details develop.
Korn’s new disc ‘The Paradigm Shift’ is due out Oct. 8, so the Family Values Festival will serve as the perfect record release party.
