Video: KORN Working On New Studio Album With Original Guitarist BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH

KORN is currently working on the follow-up to 2011's "The Path To Totality" with the help of returning guitarist and original bandmember Brian "Head" Welch.

A video clip of the veteran rockers laying down a new track in Buck Owens Studios in Bakersfield, California can be seen below.

Welch, who last played with KORN on their 2003 album "Take A Look In The Mirror", told RollingStone.com about his renewed collaboration with the band: "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's as-yet-untitled new album is due late summer.

Welch will reunite with KORN for a number of shows this spring and summer, including two dates in Germany, one concert in the United Kingdom and at the upcoming Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio.

The guitarist joined KORN onstage for the song "Blind" in May 2012 at the Carolina Rebellion festival in Rockingham, North Carolina, marking the first time in eight years that KORN played with Welch.

Welch left KORN in 2005 to become a born-again Christian. The band never officially replaced him and stayed a four-piece, although they've used several touring guitarists for live work.
