Both bands are touring in support of new records, with Korn pushing their #1 ARIA charting Requiem and Evanescence touring their career-reviving The Bitter Truth. When the tour was first announced, Lee stated "I fell hard into Korn's music in high school. It was an inspiration during the formation of my own band. The chances we've had to play together over the years are special, a part of our history. They remain one of the best live bands I've ever seen. It's an honour and a thrill to go out with our friends again, our first full tour together since '07. We're all really looking forward to this."
Requiem is Korn's tenth Top 10 album in Australia and third #1, following on from 1998’s Follow The Leader (home to the original version of Freak On A Leash) and 1999’s Issues.
