269476_517621241599812_930474199_nLove & Death, the new band led by former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, will release its debut album “Between Here & Lost” tomorrow January 22nd via Tooth & Nail Records. Recorded in Nashville with producer Jasen Rauch (RED, Breaking Benjamin) and mixed by Paul Pavao & Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Slipknot), and Jim Monti (Korn), the CD consists of 11 tracks, ranging from songs about personal struggle  and triumph (“Chemicals”, “My Disaster”, “Paralyzed”) to emotionally charged anthems (“Fading Away” “Watching The Bottom Fall”) to a riff heavy rendition of Devo’s 1980 hit “Whip It”.

Love & Death is comprised of Brian “Head” Welch, lead guitarist JR Bareis, bassist Michael Valentine, and drummer Dan Johnson.

Like the album title suggests, “Between Here & Lost” captures the honesty of light and darkness, beauty and tragedy, good and evil, delivered by a band with intense passion and commitment to the message of its music.

“This record was birthed from trials, tribulations, pain, suffering, anxiety, depression, and drama” states Welch. “However, we came out on top and the end result is a very real, raw & honest record. We are so stoked for people to hear it! From our opening song ‘The Abandoning’, to our cover of Devo’s ‘Whip it’, to our collaboration with Mattie Montgomery from For Today on ‘I  W8 4 U’, It’s an exciting piece of art and the listener will feel the different range of emotions with the lyrics & melodies of each song.”

Love & Death formed when Welch decided to have open auditions on YouTube in 2009. “I picked the guys and then had a jam session in Phoenix” says Welch. “Over the last couple of years, there have been a few lineup changes as we went through normal growing pains.  The current band has been together and touring for a while now and they are a big part of the new music and the future of Love & Death.”

Love & Death will be touring extensively in 2013 to support the effort.

About Johnny Price (557 Articles)
Johnny P’s picture should truly be in the dictionary next to “music lover” as he seriously personifies the very essence of the word. He lives, sleeps, eats & breathes music. When he’s not at shows conducting interviews, he’s writing out his experiences for all of you in his wonderful, down-home, “don’t need a damn thesaurus to read it” storytelling way. He is our Knight in Metal/Rock Armour, our tireless attendee of every show, and most importantly – a champion and friend to musicians at every level (he treats everyone like a rockstar!). If you ever get the chance to meet him, you’ll know by his big smile and humble southern boy charm that he is about as real and nice as they come.
