Korn Guitarist Brian “Head” Welch To Release New Love And Death Song With His Next Book


Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch will release a new song from his other band, Love And Death, alongside his upcoming book ‘With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles And Mistakes On My Way Back To Korn‘. The 240-page read also features 16 full color photographs from his own personal archives. Carol Traver helped pen the book, which shares his account of: “the brutal, eye-opening eight years he spent as a single Dad after leaving Korn, leading up to his controversial decision to rejoin the band in 2013 and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family in the metal music scene.”

Nelson Books aim to have the book out on May 17th and also provided the following synposis:

Welch‘s very public and disruptive conversion [to Christianity] not only inspired him to leave a life of unbelievable excess with the band he helped found, but also gave him the strength he needed to overcome addictions to cocaine, alcohol, pills, as well as the drug that would almost completely destroy his life: meth amphetamines. Nevertheless, his instinct for bad decisions lingered, and what followed was a near decade-long trial by fire-from the perils of fathering a teen lost in depression and self-mutilation to the harsh realities of playing solo and surviving financial ruin-this intensely inspiring redemption saga is unlike any other.

Told with humor and no-holds-barred frankness, the raw and brutally honest follow-up to Welch‘s 2007 bestseller, ‘Save Me From Myself‘, will appeal to a wide range of readers. ‘With My Eyes Wide Open‘ is truly an inspiring story for all.”

Welch has also recorded an audio version of the book, even enlisting his daughter Jennea to read a part she wrote for it:

Jennea, reading the part she wrote for my audio book. She’s doing amazing!
