KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch recently spoke to Artisan News about how much of a priority his band LOVE & DEATH will be going forward while he continues to tour in support of KORN's 11th studio album, "The Paradigm Shift". Check out the report below.
LOVE & DEATH's debut album, "Between Here & Lost", was re-released on September 24 as a "deluxe" edition containing a brand new track, "Empty", along with remixes of the songs "The Abandoning" and "Meltdown" by the CD's producer, Jasen Rauch (RED, BREAKING BENJAMIN).
"Between Here & Lost" sold around 4,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 95 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was originally issued on January 22 via Tooth & Nail Records.
Recorded in Nashville with Rauch and mixed by Paul Pavao, Ben Grosse (MARILYN MANSON, DISTURBED) and Jim Monti (KORN), "Between Here & Lost" consists of 11 tracks, ranging from songs about personal struggle and triumph ("Chemicals", "My Disaster", "Paralyzed") to emotionally charged anthems ("Fading Away", "Watching The Bottom Fall") to a riff-heavy rendition of DEVO's 1980 hit "Whip It".
LOVE AND DEATH is comprised of Welch, lead guitarist JR Bareis, bassist Michael Valentine, and drummer Dan Johnson.
LOVE AND DEATH formed when Welch decided to have open auditions on YouTube in 2009.
