Former KORN Guitarist BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH Sets Release Date For Solo Debut

Former KORN guitarist and founding member Brian "Head" Welch will release his debut solo album, entitled "Save Me From Myself", on September 9 via Driven Music Group/H2C Records, and distributed by Ryko/Warner Music Group. The CD's first single, "Flush", will be made available exclusively via iTunes on July 8.

A video blog from Head making the announcement can be seen at www.brianheadwelch.net.

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.
