Korn’s Brian ‘Head’ Welch Enlists Breaking Benjamin, Underoath, ex-Flyleaf Members on Solo Album
When Brian "Head" Welch stepped away from Korn in 2005, he began a solo career, releasing Save Me From Myself in 2008. Now, he's plotting his next solo full length and has recruited members of Breaking Benjamin and Underoath as well as a former member of Flyleaf to guest on it.
When speaking with "Good Company" (video below), the guitarist confirmed that he is "almost done" recording his new solo effort. It is not known if the album will be released under his name or the Love and Death moniker. In 2013, Love and Death, a re-branding of Head's solo project, released Between Here and Lost.
Revealing which musician he had been collaborating with on the forthcoming release, Head stated, "I'm working with Jasen [Rauch] from Breaking Benjamin and I'm talking to Spencer [Chamberlain] from Underoath about possibly doing something. He also confirmed that ex-Flylead singer Lacey Sturm will be singing on a cover song. "I can't tell you which song it is," Head teased, adding, "It's got to be a surprise."
The last single to be released by Head (aside from Korn) was "Lo Lamento" from his Love and Death project which featured members of Islander and RED. The song accompanied the guitarists's Loud, Krazy Love documentary.
Meanwhile, Korn's 13th album, The Nothing, arrives Sept. 13.
