Davis is currently on tour under his J Devil moniker, playing own headlining dates as well as five stops with the touring Identity Festival. J Devil will also be the support act for the Marilyn Manson-Rob Zombie Twins of Evil tour beginning Sept. 29. Meanwhile, Davis has prepared a J Devil EP for release (date pending) on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label, as well as another EP by Killbot, a “supergroup” with (Nick) Sluggo and Tyler Blue.
“I started doing (electronic music) for fun. I didn’t now what was gonna happen with it,” Davis tells Billboard.com. “Making electronic music and learning to produce and learning my new instrument — laptop, I call it — has been an amazing thing. I’m learning and I’m having fun playing my own tunes. I’ve really had to re-train myself. It’s totally different than writing rock songs.” And while he acknowledges that “because I’m Jonathan from Korn, it’s a celebrity thing” when he gets behind the turntables, he’s enjoying great acceptance from his full-time peers in the EDM world — including Skrillex, Datsik, Downlink and others he invited to be part of Korn’s 2011 album, “The Path of Totality.”

As featured on RollingStone.com, Datsik and & Infected Mushroom’s “unsettling” new video has made its official world-premiere…
Dubstep DJ Datsik is releasing his debut full length album Vitamin D on April 10th. The album’s latest single is the twitchy “Evilution,” which incorporates three different musical styles thanks to its guests Jonathan Davis and Infected Mushroom.
“Datsik and Infected Mushroom are both amazing and innovative artists that I have huge respect for, and I love working with them. This video was a ton of fun to make and it came out great in a very fucked up way,” Jonathan Davis explains of the bright yet unsettling piñata-filled video. “This was a meeting of three totally different styles, which is what makes it so fun.”
