'Head' on Rejoining Korn: 'I Was Miserable in Everything, Now It's Time to Rock Again'
Ever since rejoining Korn, guitarist Brian "Head" Welch has been "on cloud nine," and he's not afraid to admit it. The band's guitar duo was recently interviewed by former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach at this year's Revolver Golden Gods Awards ceremony. After discussing his book with the singer, Welch talked about the reunion with the group he co-founded back in the early '90s. "Dude, it's in me," the guitarist kicked off. "I have to be on the road, I love it now. I was miserable in everything in life, I was miserable at being a dad, I was miserable on the road, but now I'm happy. Rehearsing with these guys this week - I'm like on cloud nine. It's time to rock again." "We're having so much fun," James "Munky" Shaffer adds. "It's great to have him back, I can't even explain it." Jonathan Davis also shared some positive vibes regarding the guitarist's return, naming the upcoming release "by far the best album" the band ever did. The group recently entered the studio with Welch for the first time in a decade and started working on some fresh material, posting a 90-second clip featuring one of the new tunes along the way. "We knew we would have a blast playing together, because we love each other so much, but we really wanted to make sure the music felt right before we committed to making a whole album together," Welch told the Rolling Stone magazine. "But since we got in the studio, everything just started pouring out, now I can't wait until our fans hear this stuff!" The yet-untitled follow-up to 2011's "Path of Totality" is expected to drop sometime during late summer. The five-piece has also kicked off a world tour on May 15 in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania. The concert trek is bound to keep them busy well into mid-July up to the final performance in Cadott, Wisconsin on July 19.
