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.

Lo_Lamento_908‘Lo Lamento’, a brand new song from Love and Death, the band led by Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, can be streamed below. Joining Welch on the track are Breaking Benjamin‘s Jasen Rauch, who produced the song, JR Bareis (from Islander and Love and Death) and Dan Johnson from RED. Head shares vocal duties on the track with Bareis.

Welch tells Loudwire: “‘Lo Lamento’ is a song that came from an idea producer Jasen Rauch and writer Mark Holeman had on our last album, ‘Between Here And Lost’. It was actually the original chorus for our song ‘I W8 4 U’, but it sounded way too melodic for that crushing song, as you can imagine. To me, ‘Lo Lamento’ paints a picture lyrically about infidelity and a once picture perfect relationship left in ruins.” Continue reading »

Brian Head Welch 2013Musician and New York Times best-selling author Brian “Head” Welch made headlines in 2005 when he abandoned heavy metal super-group Korn after a very personal spiritual encounter he had at his home in California. “With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles And Mistakes On My Way Back To Korn” — due out May 17 from Nelson Books — is the guitarist’s account of the brutal, eye-opening eight years he spent as a single dad after leaving Korn, leading up to his controversial decision to rejoin the band in 2013 and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family in the metal music scene. Written with Carol Traver, the book is 240 pages in length, featuring 16 full-color photos from Welch‘s personal archive.

“Save Me From Myself”, Welch‘s very public and disruptive conversion not only inspired him to leave a life of unbelievable excess with the band he helped found, but also gave him the strength he needed to overcome addictions to cocaine, alcohol, pills, as well as the drug that would almost completely destroy his life: meth amphetamines. Nevertheless, his instinct for bad decisions lingered, and what followed was a near decade-long trial by fire-from the perils of fathering a teen lost in depression and self-mutilation to the harsh realities of playing solo and surviving financial ruin-this intensely inspiring redemption saga is unlike any other.
