Brian “Head” Welch hints at “Some Really Exciting News” for KORN

Back in December of 2020, KORN’s guitarist and founder, Brian “Head” Welch hinted that “some really exciting news” was in store for KORN fans.

The band’s founder and guitarist recently told Kerrang! that KORN has “some really exciting news” coming soon but stopped short of saying whether or not that was new original material. With the June 2020 release of the band’s cover of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, featuring Yelawolf, could this also be a hint at the release of the long rumored completed covers album?

Welch elaborated on the “exciting news” by telling Kerrang! “I asked the manager, because I’m doing Love And Death but I know people are going to ask me about Korn, and he said, ‘just tell them the truth. Tell them that you’ve been getting together with them, you’re working on some stuff, and that we’ve got some really exciting news coming out. I think we’re gonna make some kind of announcement pretty soon, and that’s pretty much all I can say.”
Its no surprise that KORN is to be doing what every other responsible band that isn’t touring during the COVID19 Pandemic is doing.

“I think it’s no secret that every band is getting together and there’s probably going to be a lot of records coming out. We’ve been throwing ideas back and forth, but it’s been hard because of the pandemic and whatnot because Munky lives in Los Angeles – right in the thick of it. One in five people has it there. Thank god Munky has not got it, he lives with his wife and her family, and his mother-in-law, they’ve gotta be careful with her. It’s been really crazy, but we managed to get together and we’re deciding what we’re gonna do, but we’re coming up with some cool ideas and are hopefully going to make an announcement pretty soon.”
Korn released The Nothing, the band’s 13th studio album, in 2019. The band had just completed their 2020 Winter tour with BONES UK, and Breaking Benjamin, supporting the release when the world was effectively shutdown and live concerts ended. Their scheduled 2020 co-headlining tour with Alice In Chains has been delayed indefinitely.
