Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch Clarifies Solo Album Rumors

Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch recently revealed that he was working on a new album with a number a special guests and many assumed it was going to be a solo release. However, he has since confirmed to the “BREWtally Speaking Podcast” that the effort is actually a new Love And Death album.

Welch said the following:

“It’s gonna be the Love And Death record, I’m just gonna have some guests on there. We’ll see how all ends up. You plan and then you try your best and whatever happens. Some songs might not make it, we’ll see, but it’s 80% done, and yea Breaking Benjamin guitar players [Jasen Rauch] on it.

I was talking to Spencer [Chamberlain] from Underoath, since we’re hanging out with them a lot on this tour, and Lacey Flyleaf. Ben [Burnley] from Breaking Benjamin said he wants to sing on it, but I think getting him to do anything is really hard if it’s not Breaking Benjamin, so we’ll see. It’s just gonna be Love & Death, but just a new thing we’re doing, just collaborations, that’s all. It just sounded fun, so we’re gonna go for it.”
