Brain “Head” Welch Says KORN will have new music in 2024




Fans of KORN, get ready! The exciting news was revealed by Brian “Head” Welch. The 53-year-old guitarist recently spoke with “The Joe Kingdom Perspective” podcast and gave us a sneak glimpse at what’s coming up with the group.

“Yeah, [there will be] new music coming out next year. I don’t know. We’re just kind of in hiding right now, just doing our own thing,” Welch revealed when asked about KORN’s current status.

Welch also made mention of a possible celebration for KORN‘s debut album 30th anniversary in 2024. He expressed his astonishment at how his life had improved after joining the band, adding, “It’s just crazy how the Lord just restored everything.”

In 2013, following a great performance at the Carolina Rebellion event in Rockingham, North Carolina, Welch formally rejoined KORN. A decade after leaving the band the first time and changing his life by becoming a born again Christian. 

Since his rebirth into christianity, Welch has been outspoken about how his relationship with his daughter was restored and how his life was altered by faith. He holds that experiencing God’s presence does not have to be reserved for the afterlife.

Welch isn’t the only member of KORN to have gone through a significant transition. Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, a bassist, has experienced his own adventure. He took a hiatus from the group in 2021 to work on breaking his “bad habits,” however Roberto “Ra” Daz of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES has since temporarily taken his position for live performances.

“Requiem,” KORN’s latest album released in February 2022, made quite a splash. Produced by Chris Collier and the band itself, it debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart. The album sold 23,000 equivalent units in its first tracking week, with 20,000 of those units coming from album sales. “Requiem” also secured spots at No. 2 on the Top Rock Albums and Top Alternative Albums charts and No. 14 on the all-format Billboard 200.

Sidebar: Fieldy may have been absent from live performances, but he still rocked on “Requiem.”
