‘Love & Death’ Filming ‘The Abandoning’ Video


Love And Death, the band led by former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, is filming a video for the song The Abandoning yesterday [Saturday, November 10] with director — and Underøath/ex-Norma Jean drummer — Daniel Davison. The track comes off the group’s debut album, Between Here & Lost, which will now be released on January 22, 2013 [postponed from the previously announced November 20] viaTooth & Nail Records.

Recorded in Nashville with producer Jasen Rauch [RED, Breaking Benjamin] and mixed by Paul PavaoBen Grosse [Marilyn Manson, Disturbed]and Jim Monti [Korn], the CD consists of 11 tracks, ranging from songs about personal struggle and triumph [“Chemicals”“My Disaster”, “Paralyzed“] to emotionally charged anthems [“Fading Away”“Watching The Bottom Fall”] to a riff-heavy rendition of DEVO‘s 1980 hit “Whip It”.

Like the album title suggests, Between Here & Lost captures the honesty of light and darkness, beauty and tragedy, good and evil, delivered by a band with intense passion and commitment to the message of its music.

“This record was birthed from trials, tribulations, pain, suffering, anxiety, depression, and drama,” states Welch. “However, we came out on top and the end result is a very real, raw and honest record. We are so stoked for people to hear it! From our opening song, ‘The Abandoning’, to our cover of DEVO‘s ‘Whip it’, to our collaboration with Mattie Montgomery from For Today on ‘I W8 4 U’, It’s an exciting piece of art and the listener will feel the different range of emotions with the lyrics and melodies of each song.”

Love And Death will be touring extensively in 2013 to support the effort.

Love And Death formed when Welch decided to have open auditions onYouTube in 2009. “I picked the guys and then had a jam session in Phoenix,” says Welch. “Over the last couple of years, there have been a few lineup changes as we went through normal growing pains. The current band has been together and touring for a while now and they are a big part of the new music and the future of Love And Death.”

The Chemicals video can be seen here. The intense, semi-animated clip was shot by POAB Designs/Martillo Pictures.
