Former Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch has announced that his debut solo album "Save Me From Myself" will be released on September 9th. The albums first single, entitled "Flush", will be available on iTunes on July 8th.
The album takes its name from Welch's book "Save Me From Myself: How I Found God, Quit Korn, Kicked Drugs And Lived To Tell The Story", which chronicles his famous conversion to Christianity and departure from the band. The album also contains the song "A Cheap Name" which is a lyrical attack on rapper 50 Cent. In an interview with CNN, Welch said "I'm not saying I'm better than him, I'm saying that God is telling me something and God is telling me something to tell you, I'm the translator. You can listen if you want but things are gonna happen."
Brian Welch is planning a major tour and all profits from the album will be donated to "Help Indian children get to know God."
Korn frontman Jonathan Davis was recently talking with fans on the groups official website chatroom, Korn Korner. He had this to say on former guitarist Brian "Head" Welch and drummer David Silvera:
"Head doesn't want to come back yet. I miss him sooooo fuckin' bad, but I don't think he is ready to be put back in the element he ran from. Drugs are everywere, and I think he's not ready to be around it yet. I think Fieldy can help him a lot because he's Christian too and sober and does fine. Now David, I don't know what's gonna happen there. I just think he is done with music; it not his passion anymore. It sucks, but hey, he has to be happy, right?! We are very happy with [current KORN touring drummer] Ray Luzier. Every time I see him, he's got a drum magazine or a drumstick in his hands. It pumps me and Fieldy and Munk up. So maybe one day you will see Head up there with us, I hope."
He also revealed in the chat that the next Korn album will be produced by Ross Robinson, who produced their self titled debut album and their sophomore album "Life Is Peachy", in addition to many other bands such as Soulfly and Limp Bizkit.
