Kornzone.pl reports that former KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch will perform at this summer's Cornerstone Festival, set to take place June 30 – July 5 in Bushnell, Illinois.According to the festival's web site, Welch will make an appearance on one of the festival's side stages on the event's closing day, Saturday, July 5. Since leaving KORN in 2005, Welch has been working on his debut solo album, tentatively titled "It's Time to See Religion Die", but has yet to set an official release date for the CD. In a recent interview with the "Life Today" television show, Welch reportedly said that he is "almost done mixing" the album, but is waiting for God to tell him the right time to release it. "It's Time to See Religion Die" was recorded at Fortitude Studios in Phoenix, Arizona with the help of drummer Josh Freese (A PERFECT CIRCLE, NINE INCH NAILS) and bassist Trevor Dunn (MR. BUNGLE, FANTOMAS). Welch departed KORN in February of 2005 to devote his life to Christianity and spend more time with his daughter. The band has not permanently replaced him, using touring and session guitarists instead. Watch Brian "Head" Welch's appearance on the "Life Today" television show:
