Commenting on the honor, Korn frontman Johnathan Davis checked in with Noisecreep, saying, “Our new album, “KornIII: Remember Who You Are” really means a lot to us. It’s a return to our roots. So the fact that the Grammy committee recognizes one of our favorite tracks from that album is an immense honor and, to be nominated alongside Maiden — well, that makes it even more killer.”

In what promises to be the hottest tour of winter 2011, Korn and Disturbed, two of rock’s biggest acts, are teaming up to co-headline this year’s “Monster Energy Music As A Weapon 5 Tour”.

“We are thrilled to launch the Monster Energy Music As A Weapon 5 Tour with our good friends from Korn,” says Disturbed’s singer David Draiman. “Every year we try to up the ante, and this year, by having Korn co-headline, we really think it’s going to be our best tour yet. When the idea first came up, one of the main things both bands agreed upon and wanted to focus on was hitting a lot of smaller markets. It’s exciting to bring a show like this to cities that are usually skipped over on some of the other larger rock tours that only hit the major markets. We have a lot of loyal fans in these cities and we wanted to bring them a show that they deserve”.
