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 REDHead 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. Continue reading »

Billboard described “Loud Krazy Love” as “part rock doc, part faith testimonial, part family drama.” It’s a fearless coming-of-age story that grapples with faith, teen depression, the quest for identity and the hope of a father willing to do anything for the one he loves. The film explores the relationship between the Welches and how Jennea saved Brian‘s life, as he walked away from a $23 million record deal and overcame a crippling addiction to drugs to focus on becoming a good father.

Featuring exclusive access on tour and at home, as well as in-depth interviews with Brian, his family and his Korn bandmates, “Loud Krazy Love” subverts the standard sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll narrative to explore his identity as a father and the complicated relationship he shares with his daughter Jennea.”The intimate details of Brian and Jennea‘s life during the years he was absent from Korn are turbulent,” said Mayo. “‘Loud Krazy Love’ is really a backstage pass to heartache and triumph. You don’t have to be a Korn fan to empathize with Brian‘s decision to sacrifice all his success in an attempt to be a good father. Continue reading »

Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch has paid tribute to Chuck Mosley, saying that the ex-Faith No More singer and his former bandmates “were a huge part” of Korn‘s “everyday lives” in the early 1990s.

Mosley died last week at the age of 57. He sang on Faith No More‘s first two albums, 1985’s “We Care A Lot” and 1987’s “Introduce Yourself”. He was fired from the band and replaced by Mike Patton, who remains the group’s singer to this day.

In an Instagram post yesterday (Monday, November 13), Welch wrote: “I remember living in a tiny apartment in Burbank, California, living with most of the guys who would later form Korn. They were in their funk rock band called L.A.P.D. I was just hanging out drinking beer trying to figure out life. They were so into the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Faith No More, and I wanted nothing to do with those bands. Continue reading »
