Korn earned yet another album in the Billboard 200’s Top 10 last year with Paradigm Shift, but rather than just rest on their laurels, they announced an expanded edition to come out later this month.

An interview with Billboard reveals the nu-metal band put together new tracks, with parts recorded separately. Songs not making it onto the original edition will also see the light of day.

Leading the June 23 release is a new single called “Haters,” which frontman Jonathan Davis considers their most empowering track to date. He told the magazine: "It's really, like, the first empowering song I've ever written. […] And everyone who's heard it loves it, and I think it's going to give people who get down on people picking on them and hating them, like, 'F--k this! I don't give a f--k what you think. I don't give a f--k what you say. You just f--kin' are a hater.' I think people will relate with that."

Following, a summer tour with a few U.S. dates begins in July.

Paradigm Shift, which dropped in October 2013, saw the return of guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, who left the band in 2003. The release ended up peaking at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 and generated two singles “Never Never” and “Spike in My Veins.”
