Professionally filmed video footage of former KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch's August 29, 2009 performance at the Exit concert event at the Thomas and Mack Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada can be viewed below.
Exit is a series of concerts organized by Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D. and Ryan Ries of THE WHOSEVERS, featuring live bands, the Metal Mulisha and much more.
Exit 2009 was a free show attended by nearly 18,000 fans! Other acts that performed at the event included FLYLEAF and BLINDSIDE.
Welch is continuing to tour in support of his debut album, "Save Me From Myself", which was released in September 2008 on his Driven Music Group label. His backing band consists of Scott Von Heldt (guitar), Ralph Patlan (guitar), Michael Valentine (bass), Dan Johnson (drums) and Brian Ruedy (keyboards, programming).
"Save Me From Myself", sold 7,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 63 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released through Driven Music Group (distribution by Ryko/Warner Music Group), the label Welch co-founded with music execs Greg Shanaberger and Mark Nawara.
"Save Me From Myself" was produced by Head, who recorded the music off and on for the past two years in Phoenix, Arizona. It features renowned musicians Tony Levin (PETER GABRIEL, DAVID BOWIE) and Josh Freese (A PERFECT CIRCLE, NINE INCH NAILS), and was mixed by Ralph Patlan and Bob Clearmountain. It's a testimony of Head's life as he battled with drug addiction and leaving KORN, and finding spirituality.
