The full details of Korn‘s upcoming summer tour with special guests Stone Sour have been revealed, following the leak of a few dates last month. The “Serenity Of Summer” trek will kick of on June 16th in Salt Lake City, coming to a close on August 2nd in Cleveland. Stone Sour will appear on all the dates, while support from June 16th through the 25th will come from Babymetal, Yelawolf and Islander. Warm-up acts from July 19th through August 2nd will include Skillet and Ded, with Yelawolf still on the bill as well.

- Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor told us what he likes most about doing summer festival-style tours: [“You get a bunch of great bands, a bunch of people that you know — it’s basically like going to a traveling summer camp and just having a blast, man, and just doing your best to support everyone, and just having a really great time. At the end of the day, if you’re not having a good time, then you might as well just be punching a time clock somewhere.”]
- Korn is touring behind its 12th studio album, The Serenity Of Suffering, which came out last October. The track “A Different World” features a guest appearance from Taylor.
- Stone Sour’s new album, Hydrograd, will arrive in June, just in time for the launch of the tour.
