KORN Guitarists Discuss BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH's Return To Band (Video)

Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach conducted an interview with KORN guitarists James "Munky" Shaffer and Brian "Head" Welch on the "black carpet" at the fifth annual Revolver Golden Gods awards on May 2 at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles, California. You can now watch the chat below.

KORN has completed work on its 11th studio CD and first with founding guitarist Welch back in the fold since 2003's "Take A Look In The Mirror".

Welch told Rolling Stone, "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!"

KORN singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio he never felt completely comfortable without Welch in the group. "He's like my other half, you know," he said. "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?"

The band made Welch's return to the studio official with a new video posted online.

The new KORN set is due out in late summer and will follow up 2011's "The Path Of Totality", which found the group experimenting with dubstep.

The new record will feature four-fifths of the original KORN lineup, with only founding drummer David Silveria not on board.

KORN will kick off a world tour tonight (Wednesday, May 15) in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania. This will be Welch's first full run of dates with the band after playing one song with them last year at the Carolina Rebellion festival.
