Hot on the heels of their festival-stealing set at this year's Download, KORN have announced that their 12th studio album, 'The Serenity Of Suffering' will be released on 21st October.

You can pre-order the album from today at http://flyt.it/KORNSOS and grab the first single, 'Rotting In Vain' right away.

The video for 'Rotting In Vain' stars 'Sons of Anarchy' actor Tommy Flanagan and you can check it out in full below.

The band's frontman, Jonathan Davis tells us, "'Rotting in Vain’ was written about being in that black place, being in situations that I don’t like in life, be it relationships or feeling when you’re stuck and you’re just being abused or you don’t like where you’re at, and you just sit there and rot. It takes you years and years to figure out how to claw your way out. That’s where ‘Rotting in Vain’ came from. That’s the vibe that inspired the song.”
