Korn Back In the Studio With Founding Guitarist
Korn has found their way back to the studio and this time they managed to drag original member and founding guitarist Brian “Head” Welch back with them. And what could they possibly be doing in the studio? Recording a new album, that’s what! So get excited.
This will be Welch’s first album with Korn since 2003’s Take a Look in the Mirror, and you can expect the new album sometime in the later half of the summer. All of the original members except drummer David Silveria will be on the album. The band even released a video to officially announce Welsh’s return, and you can check it out below. Welsh told Rolling Stones in a recent interview, “We knew we would have a blast playing together, because we love each other so much, but we really wanted to make sure the music felt right before we committed to making a whole album together. But since we got in the studio, everything just started pouring out, now I can’t wait until our fans hear this stuff!”
The band is set to kick off a world tour on May 15th in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania and will be Welch’s first time playing a whole set with the band after he joined them to play a single song at the Carolina Rebellion festival last year. Lead singer Jonathan Davis said he never felt truly comfortable without Welch and said, “He’s like my other half, you know. I got Munky here and I got, I always had Head there. It’s always been missing something. I mean, we’d been doing fine, we’ve had guitar players come in and everything, but you know, there’s that magic, you know what I mean?”
