WHO:              “Hater” is featured on KORN’s newly released deluxe reissue, THE PARADIGM SHIFT: WORLD TOUR EDITION (released July 22 on Prospect Park) available exclusively at Best Buy. “Hater” invaded radio airwaves last month and has already vaulted into the Top 15 at Active Rock (as of 8/4). For the single, the group teamed up with hitmaker/producer Don Gilmore, who also produced THE PARADIGM SHIFT album, as well as the group’s #1 active rock radio smash “Never Never.” The song kicks into gear with the seminal grinding guitar volley of Brian “Head” Welch and James “Munky” Shaffer. Meanwhile, Reggie “Fieldy” Arvizu cranks out a throbbing bass bounce punctuated by Ray Luzier’s impenetrable percussion. At the eye of the storm, Jonathan Davis delivers a haunting verse that quickly blossoms into an eerily unforgettable chorus. Listen to “Hater” here: http://tinyurl.com/o2bl475. THE PARADIGM SHIFT: WORLD TOUR EDITION features brand new songs including single “Hater,” plus “The Game Is Over” and a bevy of live tracks recorded all over the globe and expanded artwork.
