Brian 'Head' Welch Releases Solo Album This Fall

Published: 2008-06-26
Brian "Head" Welch, former lead guitarist of Nu-metal band Korn, is releasing his debut solo album Save Me From Myself on September 9, 2008. The album was produced by Welch, who recorded the music off and on for the past two years in Phoenix, Arizona. It features renowned musicians Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, David Bowie) and Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails), and was mixed by Ralph Patlan and Bob Clearmountain. The album follows the release of his New York Times "Best Seller" memoir of the same name, which was released through Harper Collins in July 2007 and who have now released a "clean version" without the profanity and gory details this week for a younger audience called Washed By Blood. In the book, Welch discusses how his consuming addiction to methamphetamines was a cycle he couldn't break on his own. His struggle led him to seek Jesus in his broken state, and with God's help he was set free from his longtime addiction and much more.

The first single off the album, "Flush", is being serviced to radio this week and will be available on July 8 for download on iTunes. Welch describes the single, "'Flush' is a perfect way for me to come back into the music world because it's basically about flushing all the crap in life down the toilet and starting out fresh—exactly what I've been doing for the last few years. All the drama that I experienced with getting drunk and doing drugs, all the time seemed interesting and amusing to write about. That lifestyle is total insanity and I'm just glad I'm not dead and I was able to write a song like 'Flush.'"
