Korn Lines Up Tour, Studio Time As David Talks Injury

After making the rounds with Metallica, Kid Rock, and System Of A Down on the Summer Sanitarium tour, Korn and Powerman 5000 will head out on their own with Papa Roach in tow.

The triple bill gets rolling on July 18 in Fargo, North Dakota and will visit another 17 cities before wrapping up in Detroit on August 20.

Meanwhile, the likelihood that injured drummer David Silveria will be rejoining Korn for either the Summer Sanitarium tour or its jaunt with PM5K and Papa Roach looks to be slimming. Silveria recently told MTV News that he wants to be fully recovered in time to record with the band later this year, which may mean a tour-free summer for the drummer.

"I really, really wanted to do the summer tour," Silveria explained last weekend at the KROQ Weenie Roast. "I'm going to be very disappointed if I can't, but I would rather take the time off to recover to be 100 percent

rather than do the tour and take a chance on not being able to complete the tour and then put the other guys in a situation again where we have to get Mike [Bordin] to come in and help us out to complete the tour. I don't want to do that. I want to make sure I'm 100 percent, so I'll make a decision soon." [RealVideo]

As we previously reported, Silveria reinjured his wrist during a show in Fargo in March (see "Korn Sidelined By David's Injury"). He told MTV News that he's still not not sure what's ailing him.

"I'm still trying to work it out," he said. "[I've] done every kind of test you can imagine, and I have some more tests scheduled. Trying to find out why it goes weak when I start playing -- 20, 30 minutes into a show, it just goes dead."

In the meantime, Silveria said that Bordin will continue to fill in on the road this summer and that he hopes to be behind the kit when Korn hits the studio in

October to begin work on a new album.

"If I don't go [on the road], I'm going to be out there all the time writing," Silveria said. "I've got to get ready for the record."
