Korn fans have had a lot to be thankful for lately with Brian 'Head' Welch's return to the band after an eight-year break and news that that their "best album ever" is completed. We discussed those things and more with the band's guitarists, Munky and Head, in our exclusive interview with the duo at Rock on the Range.
Sacramento, Calif., is the place to be if you're a hard rock fan this September, as the second annual Monster Energy Aftershock Festival is coming to Discovery Park near downtown Sacramento. The 2013 Aftershock bill features California rock favorites Avenged Sevenfold and Korn headlining the two-day festival, which takes place Sept. 14 and 15.
These are the best of times for Korn, who have reunited with guitarist Brian "Head" Welch both onstage and in the studio. Loudwire met up with Head and fellow Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer on the Revolver Golden Gods Black Carpet and discussed reviving the onetime dynamic and how it feels to renew the personal and professional relationship. Check out out interview with the Korn guitarists below:
Last night (May 15), Brian 'Head' Welch returned to the stage with Korn to perform his first full set with the band since leaving the multiplatinum act in 2005. A packed crowd in Belle Vernon, Pa., were the lucky bunch to witness Welch's return, and we've got all the details from the gig for you to sink your teeth into.
Korn have just completed recording their 11th full-length album. The band's follow-up to their dubstep-influenced 2011 album, 'The Path of Totality,' will be their first in 10 years to feature guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch and has already been called "the best album we've ever done" by vocalist Jonathan Davis.
