Jonathan Davis warns of the dangers of conformity in his new video for “Everyone”, a track off the upcoming solo album Black Labyrinth. The clip follows a cult whose members partake in rituals that become more twisted as the song progresses. Though it’s almost impossible to not associate Jonathan Davis with Korn, this song does provide a fresh sound that’s catchy, but still retains the heaviness he’s known for. Watch the video below and catch his solo set at the MMRBQ on May 19th!

The 1965 Fender Telecaster that Bob Dylan used during his first electric tour will be put on the block as part of Julien’s Auctions’ upcoming Music Icons sale, set to take place May 19th, both in New York and online. The instrument is expected to fetch between $400,000 and $600,000, with a portion of the proceeds goings to the American Indian College Fund. The guitar was used on a handful of Dylan recordings, including Blonde on Blonde and The Basement Tapes. Prior to the sale, Julien’s will host a free exhibition of the items at the Hard Rock Café in New York City.
