Tempo Music acquires a majority stake in master recordings & compositions of seminal Korn albums See You On The Other Side & Untitled

The company has also acquired the perpetual license for the band’s MTV Unplugged album

New York, 1st November 2021 Tempo Music has acquired a majority stake in the master recordings and compositions of albums See You On The Other Side and Untitled by alternative metal legends Korn.

See You On The Other Side was the band’s seventh studio album featuring titles such as ‘Twisted Transistor’, ‘Coming Undone’, and ‘Politics’. The album was Platinum certified in 2006 and peaked at Number 3 on the US Billboard 200 chart.

Untitled was the band’s eighth studio album featuring titles such as ‘Evolution’, ‘ Hold On’, and ‘Kiss.’ The album was Gold certified in 2007, claiming the number one spot on the US Billboard Top Rock Albums and number two on the US Billboard 200 chart.

The company has also acquired the perpetual license (income stream) for the band’s MTV Unplugged album, which also contains many of their best known songs.

Korn was formed in California in 1994 and have to date sold more than 40 million records worldwide. Twelve of the band’s official releases have peaked in the top ten of the Billboard 200, eight of which have peaked in the top five.

The band have recently completed a sold out US summer tour and have scheduled a European headlining tour in 2022.

Josh Empson, Founder & CEO of Tempo Music said, “We have always been focused on acquiring ‘modern masters’ from bands or artists who still maintain a contemporary,  longstanding relationship with their audiences, an established place within their genre and the ability to support their catalog via touring and new releases. Korn fit that description perfectly. They are still creatively ambitious and hardworking after almost 30 years together, which is hugely inspiring.”
