Korn Guitarist Brian “Head” Welch Launches New Label XOVR Records, Signs Spoken


Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch has launched his new record label, XOVR Records (pronounced ‘Crossover Records’). Christian metal/rock outfit Spoken are the first band to be signed to this new venture, which Welch is heading up alongside his  manager David W. Williams.

Spoken, who currently feature Welch‘s Love And Death bandmate JR Bareis, will have their tenth studio album “Reflection” out through the fledgling label on March 15th. A music video for the title track has been released in advance below. Spoken commented:

“Remembering our past should shape us, but never define us, especially if the past brings disappointment, heartache, or pain. Instead, we embrace the lessons learned, and move forward believing our future is alive.”

Welch himself offered:

“It is a complete pleasure to work together with my long time friend and solo manager David Williams to start XOVR. I am equally excited to work on our first release with Spoken, featuring our brother JR from Love and Death.

Led by our bro Matt Baird, Spoken has been one of the hardest working bands in rock ‘n’ roll; they have an incredible reputation for grinding it out because they love what they do so much. I can’t wait for everyone to hear Spoken‘s latest release, it is truly an epic album!

Follow us to keep up to date about future projects we’ll be releasing through XOVR, including the band Dose of Adolescence, coming in 2024!”

Welch will guest on the “Reflection” track “Anymore“, while Demon Hunter vocalist Ryan Clark appears on the closing track, “Sleeper“. Pre-orders for Spoken‘s new record can be obtained via

As Welch teased, his label has also picked up Nashville, TN duo Dose Of Adolescence.
