Korn’s Head to release Eyes Wide Open
Book promises “no-holds-barred” look at guitarist’s struggles in the years out of the band he co-founded
Korn’s Brian ‘Head’ Welch is to release a book focusing on the years he spent out of the band he co-founded.
With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles And Mistakes On My Way Back To Korn is said to give a “no-holds-barred” account of his departure from the group in 2005, and his subsequent struggles before rejoining Jonathan Davis and co in 2013.
The book, co-written with Carol Traver, describes Welch’s “near decade-long trial by fire-from the perils of fathering a teen lost in depression and self-mutilation, to the harsh realities of playing solo and surviving financial ruin.”
The follow-up to his autobiography Save Me From Myself is set for release in the US on May 17 and the Europe on June 24 via Thomas Nelson Publishing and pre-orders are now being taken. It’ll come with an exclusive free download link to a new track from his solo project Love & Death.
Korn are aiming to release the follow-up to 2013’s The Paradigm Shift later this year. They have several live dates scheduled over the coming months, including an appearance at Download.
