The band will be joined on multiple dates by Wichita heavy-hitters Signum A.D. and Laredo, Texas newcomers Broken Vision.
The Sammus Theory welcomes newest addition to the band, Bill Elliott, taking on the bass guitar. “I’m very excited to start a new chapter in my career. Having been a fan of The Sammus Theory myself for years, this is a dream come true for me”, Elliott says about joining the band. “Having listened to ‘See (it) Through’, the new album takes what made The Sammus Theory great and puts it on a whole new level. I’m really looking forward to meeting all of the amazing and loyal fans I’ve heard about across the country this summer.”
The Music as a Weapon V Tour with Disturbed and Korn is coming to the Pan American Center on Wednesday, with guests StillWell and In This Moment.
The rock and metal show starts at 7 p.m. and about 1,800 tickets were left as of Tuesday, said Bobbie Welch, the Pan Am’s booking and marketing director.
The last time Korn rocked Las Cruces was in 2000 and this is Disturbed’s first stop here.
Ryan Molina, 10, is hoping for a pair of tickets from his favorite band for his March 2 birthday.
“I really, really want to go see them!” he said. “If I was able to go and get a good view and they played ‘Shoots and Ladders,’ that’s one of my favorite songs, I will be amazed and start jumping around and really enjoy it. I’ll be like yaaaah! Yaaah!”
Not to spoil the surprise, but his mom Tracy Molina said she’s planning on it.
“I’m definitely going to try to get him tickets for his birthday,” she said. “He has always liked that kind of music.”

John Moyer had reason to celebrate when he performed with Disturbed in 2009 at the El Paso County Coliseum.
“It was pretty cool, man,” said the 1992 Coronado High School (El Paso) graduate of his first performance here with the Chicago heavy metal band he joined in 2003. “I’ve seen plenty of shows at the Coliseum growing up, but it was cool to go back and play.”
The band – singer David Draiman, guitarist Dan Donegan, drummer Mike Wengren and Moyer – released its fifth album in 10years, “Asylum,” in August. Band members have touted the album as just as heavy, but lyrically and musically more mature than its four previous studio efforts.
“Asylum” – just like the band’s three previous albums – debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard’s best-selling album charts.
The title “Asylum” represents a kind of dichotomy that’s often explored in Draiman’s cathartic lyrics. “It’s a place for the insane or people who are pushed too far by society,” Moyer explained, “but it’s also a place of refuge and safety. The dual meaning is what we were going for on this record.” – Doug Pullen
California nu metal group Korn makes a return trip to the Borderland. On Oct. 30, the group packed 28,000 into the parking lot of Speaking Rock Entertainment Center in El Paso for a free show. It’s their first show in Las Cruces since 2000.
The group – comprised of Jonathan Davis on vocals, James “Munky” Shaffer on guitar, Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu on bass and drummer Ray Luzier – burst on the scene in 1994 and has outlasted many of its peers, including Limp Bizkit, and influenced current bands, such as Slipknot.
After years of experimenting with its sound, Fieldy said, the band went back to the basics on its ninth studio album, “Korn III – Remember Who You Are,” released in July on Roadrunner Records. The album was helmed by their original producer, Ross Robinson, and recorded without today’s computer-driven technology.
“I think going into it this time it really felt like a band, getting into a little rehearsal spot and jamming out,” Fieldy said. “When you’re doing that, you kind of have a live feel to it. We kind of wrote knowing we’d be performing those songs live.”

IN THIS MOMENT
Southern California’s female fronted hard rockers In This Moment are making waves with their album “A Star Crossed Wasteland,” which was released in July. Dubbed a “modern metal masterpiece” by Alternative Press, the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Independent Charts and in the Top 10 of both the U.S. Hard Rock and Alternative Charts.
Singer Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth founded the group in 2005 and less than two years later, the group was touring with Lacuna Coil, Megadeth, Rob Zombie and Ozzy Osbourne. Brink is the face of the band, earning accolades for her vocals as well as her good looks. In April 2010, she was named the Hottest Chick in Metal at the Revolver Golden God awards.
Originally, Sevendust was slated to open the show, but was replaced by StillWell, a side-project of Korn’s bass player Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu. Arvizu plays guitar for StillWell, a street-metal band featuring rapper Q-Unique and drummer Wuv from P.O.D. StillWell’s first album, “Dirtbag,” should be released sometime this month.
