New Audio Interview Posted Online With ‘Brian “Head’ Welch’


Kingsmen Media recently conducted an interview with former Korn guitarist and current Love And Death frontman Brian “Head” Welch. Brian spoke about Love And Death‘s new single, Paralyzed, reaching the No. 1 position on the Gospel Rock chart; his battles with the “Flesh,” fighting the Demon and giving his life to Jesus Christ. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.

Regarding his decision to call his group Love An DeathWelch recently said, “I put this band together in 2009. Since then, we’ve experienced some very intense highs and lows. Michael ValentineDan JohnsonJ.R. Bareis and myself have toured around the world playing a lot of killer shows, but we’ve also had some heart-shattering difficulties along the way.To us, the name Love And Death symbolizes everything we’ve been through as a band over the last few years. We love this band so much and we’ll go through hell to connect with our fans. We’ve proven that to ourselves over and over again.”

With Love And Death, the music now lives under its own banner.

“Many people have confused my speaking dates and our band dates because they were both being booked as Brian ‘Head’ Welch,” saidWelch. “I have wanted to use a band name for branding my music for a few years. It has been an ongoing discussion with my management, but we were just starting to tour and I was in the middle of supporting my third book and it seemed like a bad time to switch names. Now with the new music coming out, it’s time to really separate the things I do. I want the music to be about music. I will still be doing public speaking under Brian ‘Head’ Welch. I am happy that all the confusion will be over.”

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 below. The intense, semi-animated clip was shot by POAB Designs/Martillo Pictures.
