Spouky Kids - A Tribute to Marilyn Manson | Korn Again - A Tribute to Korn

Hail to the Antichrist for Spouky Kids - the UK's only Marilyn Manson tribute. Playing all the greatest hits of the Antichrist Superstar with a full replicated stage production Spouky Kids intend to shock and rock the UK and Europe.

Korn Again are the world's premier live tribute to Korn endorsed by the original band. After forming just seven years ago, they have wasted no time in cementing their claim as the world's greatest Korn tribute act, and have managed to replicate the band’s trademark raw and aggressive sound, effortlessly translating it to the live arena through countless high-octane live performances. Korn Again also have the stamp of approval from the original band themselves, as they were joined on stage by Korn's bassist 'Fieldy' and drummer Ray Luzier during a show in December 2016 to perform two of their biggest known hits - 'Here To Stay' and 'Freak on a Leash'. News of this spread fast in the rock/metal press after Korn posted an official video of the gig on the bands Facebook page.
