KORN's BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH Taps BREAKING BENJAMIN, UNDEROATH, Ex-FLYLEAF Members For New Solo Record
August 15, 2019
KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch has confirmed to "Good Company" that he is "almost done" recording his new solo album. "I'm working with Jasen [Rauch] from BREAKING BENJAMIN," he said (see video below). "And I'm talking to Spencer [Chamberlain] from UNDEROATH about possibly doing something. And Lacey [Sturm] from FLYLEAF… She is singing on a cover song, but I can't tell you which song it is. It's gotta be a surprise."
Welch's last non-KORN release was the "Lo Lamento" single from his LOVE AND DEATH project, which came out in March 2016. Joining Welch on the track were Rauch, who produced the song, JR Bareis (from ISLANDER) and Dan Johnson from RED. Head shared vocal duties on the track with Bareis.
"Lo Lamento" was given away as a free download to everyone who purchased Welch's "With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles And Mistakes On My Way Back To Korn" book.
Welch's first solo album, "Save Me From Myself", came out in 2008.
LOVE AND DEATH's debut full-length, "Between Here & Lost", was released in 2013.
KORN has teamed up with ALICE IN CHAINS for a co-headlining amphitheater tour across North America. The trek kicked off on July 18 in Del Valle, Texas and is hitting nearly 30 cities before wrapping on September 4 in Mountain View, California.
KORN's new album, "The Nothing", will be released on September 13 via Roadrunner/Elektra. The follow-up to 2016's "The Serenity Of Suffering" was once again produced by Nick Raskulinecz.
