BRIAN "HEAD" WELCH Set To Launch Promotional Tour


Head Former Korn guitarist BRIAN "HEAD" WELCH is launching a promo tour to celebrate the release of his debut solo album, SAVE ME FROM MYSELF, due out September 9 on Driven Music Group (distribution by Ryko/Warner Music Group), the label he co-founded with music execs Greg Shanaberger and Mark Nawara. The first single, "Flush," is currently spinning on radio stations nationwide, including XM and Sirius, and it's currently available for purchase exclusively on iTunes.
At each stop along the tour route, Head will be signing copies of the album, as well as his autobiographies, Save Me From Myself, which landed on the New York Times "Best Seller" list (non-fiction) and has sold over 70,000 copies since its release, and Washed By Blood. The latter is an edited paperback version of Save Me From Myself aimed at a younger audience and doesn't contain the profanity and gory details of the original version. A paperback of the original Save Me From Myself is also available now.
The album was produced by Head, 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. It's a testimony of Head's life as he battled with drug addiction and leaving Korn, and finding spirituality. It will leave no doubt in everyone's mind that Head, as a founding member of Korn, has not lost his passion for the heavy sound that originally helped make his former band famous. SAVE ME FROM MYSELF will remind listeners of Head's dominant influence in the nu-metal sound that projected Korn to the top of the music charts for over a decade. It can only be described as a heavy metal epic, with a positive message.
