Korn is hitting the road in celebration of a huge milestone.

On Tuesday, the legendary nu metal band announced that they're setting out on a massive North American tour in 2024 to coincide with their self-titled, debut studio album turning 30 on Oct. 11.

The group will be playing 25 dates at arenas and amphitheaters across the U.S. and Canada throughout the fall. They'll also be bringing along fellow metal stars on the road, including the Grammy-nominated French group Gojira and Canada's Spiritbox.

The "Freak on a Leash" band will kick off their live dates on Sept. 12 with a show in Tampa, Florida. They'll make stops in major cities like Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Phoenix and Houston, before eventually wrapping up with a final show in St. Paul, Minnesota on Oct. 27.

The Grammy winners confirmed their string of shows several weeks after they announced a special, 30th anniversary show. At the time, the group — fronted by Jonathan Davis — revealed that they were playing a single concert at Los Angeles' BMO Stadium on Oct. 5.

Korn took to social media to tease the gig with a trailer featuring footage from some of their most iconic music videos dating back to the '90s to get fans excited and show how far they've come. They also revealed that the show would feature an A-list lineup of supporting talent, including Evanescence, Daron Malakian, Scars On Broadway, Vended, as well as their tourmates Gojira and Spiritbox.

"Celebrating 30 years of #KORN," the "Coming Undone" group wrote in the caption. "Join us at BMO Stadium in Los Angeles for this historic, once in a lifetime event."

Fans proceeded to sell out the L.A. anniversary show, shortly after it was announced.

Korn was originally formed in 1993 by Davis, 53, guitarists Brian "Head" Welch and James "Munky" Shaffer, bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu and drummer David Silveria — all of whom remain in the band's lineup today, save for Silveria, who was eventually replaced by Ray Luzier.

One year after their formation, the California-bred band released their debut studio album, which featured songs like "Blind" and "Need To" and helped to pioneer the nu metal genre. Although the rockers found more commercial success with their sophomore release, 1996's Life Is Peachy, their debut established them as sonic purveyors and inspired a handful of other acts who followed and exuded a similar heavy, hip-hop-inspired rock sound.

Korn last released a full-length LP with 2022's Requiem, their 14th studio effort. The project debuted at 14 on the Billboard 200.

The "Falling Away from Me" band is hitting the road shortly after Welch, 53, founded Atlantic Behavioral Health, a treatment center that provides intensive outpatient treatment in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

In late 2023, the musician announced he was launching the facility — which addresses anxiety, depression, and various mental health disorders through individual and group therapy and medication management in an outpatient program — due to his own experiences dealing with depression.

Tickets for Korn's 2024 tour will kick off with a presale for Citi cardmembers, running now until Thursday at 10 p.m. local time. The artist presale also began today, which fans can gain access to on the band's website.

General ticket sales commence on Friday at 10 a.m. local time on ticketmaster.com.
