In a midst of Brian "Head" Welch
's complaints regarding the difficulty of performing in two bands at the same time, Love & Death
drummer Dan Johnson
discussed the guitarist's return to Korn
, calling it somewhat of a savior for Love & Death.
"Brian's handling it pretty well actually,"
he told Metal Insider
regarding Head's double duty. "Especially because we only play a 20-minute set. For us, it's been a game changer."Honestly, if he wouldn't have went back this band probably wouldn't have survived. To be honest, we just weren't getting the exposure we needed. We had a few great tours, but it didn't seem like many more were going to come in."
The drummer was also asked about the group's upcoming plans, revealing the need to keep the work spirit alive and well.
"For now, we just got more Korn dates lined up,"
Dan said. "We have stuff without them lined up. We're just going to hit it hard. I have to keep motivated. We have to bang on the radio, do more tours ... just work!"
When it comes to the current Korn tour, the drummer couldn't help expressing the excitement. "Obviously awesome! Some crowds, like Europe, we had to win them over. Some people just don't want to see us out there. A side project isn't always welcome."
