Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch Says It’s “Lame” That Islander Were Kicked Off ‘Vans Warped Tour’


Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch took to social media to share his feelings on Islander recently having been kicked off this year’s ‘Vans Warped Tour after playing only one show. During their July 01st set in Denver, CO as part of the tour, Islander frontman Mikey Carvajal dove into a drum kit and damaged it.

Apparently he was unaware that the drum kit in question was a backline drum kit. While the band apologized and offered to pay for the damage, they were still ejected from the trek. Welch took to Facebook to say of the matter:

Welch himself has had ties to the band in the past, with his Love & Death bandmate J.R. Bareis previously being a member. The two outfits have also toured together in the past. Islander themselves have since issued another follow-up statement on their removal, you can watch it below:
