2021 will see Love And Death return with “Perfectly Preserved”, a blistering but accessible full-length follow-up, driven by the spiritual resilience inherent in the first record, combined with an even starker depiction of real-life struggle. Anger, broken relationships, lowered self-worth, and the collision of optimistic values with oppressive systems are all on display, from the arresting refrains of ‘Tragedy‘, ‘Death Of Us‘ and ‘Affliction‘ to the bold, conqueror driven anthem of ‘White Flag‘.
Love And Death harness soaring melodies and crushing riffs, weaponizing them like a supernatural dagger to strike at the blackened heart of disillusionment from both within and without. With an instantly recognizable relatability, for anyone who has felt discarded or without value, the band crafts invigorating anthems filled with earnest pleas for mercy and certainty amidst the chaos of an uncertain world. This is heavy music to vigorously confront depression, heartbreak, and pain.
The band began with similar raw, authentic emotional honesty to what drove singer/guitarist Brian “Head” Welch to multiplatinum and Grammy Award-winning heights as a co-founder of genre trailblazers Korn Forged as an outlet for recovery and redemption in a season of change, the creation of Love And Death resulted in the powerful and dynamic 2013 debut “Between Here & Lost”. The album spoke plainly to the hearts of similarly disenfranchised fans all across the world.
