Ex-KORN Guitarist BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH Schedules New Jersey In-Store

Former KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch will take part in a signing session at the Vintage Vinyl store in Fords, New Jersey on Friday, September 26 beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Welch's debut solo album, entitled "Save Me From Myself", is scheduled for release on September 9 via Driven Music Group/H2C Records, and distributed by Ryko/Warner Music Group. The CD's first single, "Flush", was made available exclusively via iTunes on July 8. A video for "Flush" was completed in Los Angeles with director Frankie Nasso of Nova Entertainment (MUDVAYNE, HATEBREED, ALL THAT REMAINS, WALLS OF JERICHO).

According to a press release, the storyline for the "Flush" video "takes a surprising turn away from what the conservative press would expect from Head and his spiritual awakening and takes an 'in-your-face,' gritty, but very honest look at the depths to which individuals will go to satisfy their drug/alcohol addictions or other vices. Wrapped with footage of real-life stories, and overlayed with other innuendo, Head's performance steals the picture and will answer anyone's questions as to whether he can still rock as hard or harder than his earlier days in KORN. The literal message in the final screen will get viewers thinking long and hard about any pre-conceived judgments they have about those in society typically viewed as losers."

Check out behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the video below.

Welch's memoir, "Save Me from Myself: How I Found God, Quit Korn, Kicked Drugs, and Lived to Tell My Story", rocketed into the New York Times bestsellers list after its first week of publication last year, debuting at #20 on the "Non-Fiction" list.

For more than a decade, Brian "Head" Welch was lead guitarist for the controversial rock band KORN, but in early 2005 he shocked the international music community when he abruptly quit the band and announced that he had been saved by Jesus Christ. His announcement in front of 10,000 people in Bakersfield, California set off a media frenzy, as people from around the world sought to understand what led this rock star into the light.

In the book, Welch talks for the first time about how his tumultuous life with the band led to his surprising decision to quit KORN.
