Brian ‘Head’ Welch of Korn and Jasen Rauch of Breaking Benjamin resume the project after an 8-year hiatus and announce a new LP due in February on Earache Records.
The passion project spearheaded by Brian “Head” Welch of Korn, Love and Death, has announced their return with a brand new album and the first offering in the single, “Down”.
With Jasen Rauch of Breaking Benjamin officially joining the ranks as a full-fledged member, the bassist/producer shared songwriting duties with Head for the band’s latest release, Perfectly Preserved. Rounding out the line up is JR Bareis, who now shares vocals with Welch, and Isaiah Perez behind the kit.
The band made their debut in 2013 with the album Between Here & Lost. The band would surface again in 2016 with a standalone single in “Lo Lamento”.
Recently, the band emerged in the headlines by announcing their signing to Earache Records. Quickly following up on the news of their deal, the band has now confirmed a brand new full length album, and underscored their prowess with a single in “Down” that is arguably some of their heaviest work to date.
Offering a voice of reason during especially uncertain times, Head discussed the collective headspace that resulted in this record. “Everybody knows my foundation, I feel like what our world needs most in this very unique moment in time are real stories about overcoming struggle. These are honest songs co-written by our group of friends targeting depression/mental health, challenging relationships, trauma, loneliness, and related issues.”
Perfectly Preserved arrives on February 12th, 2021 via Earache Records. Pre-order the album – HERE
