Nu metallers Korn
have officially announced the dates of the their new headlining US tour. What makes this one special is the fact that it will feature guitarist Brian "Head" Welch,
marking his return to headlining US shows with Korn for the first time since 2004.
Apart from a number of confirmed shows, Welch doesn't exclude the possibility of more live dates, or even a collaboration with the band on the new studio album. "Head" is currently busy working with his new band Love & Death
, with whom he has recently released an album titled "Between Here & Lost."
Although he is not a permanent member of the group, the guitarist did give somewhat of a hint that his full-time reunion with Korn isn't as far-reached as we might think.
"I'd love to do Love & Death, even if I rejoin Korn as a permanent member. Love & Death is, like, my whole project to just get what's in my soul out into words and stuff, so I'd love to do always do that, but the Korn thing, man, it's just ... I love those guys and just connecting with the fans again, it's just like ... It's so cool to feel so welcome, you know?!" Welch said in a recent interview with Loudwire
"We're talking about a lot of stuff right now. It's just like friends back together - that's the main thing right now. I think it would be something that we would know, like maybe in the fall or something like that. But, again, we're not trying to pull any tricks, we're just going slow because it's been so long and I've been busy, so we've just gotta get together more."
