Brian Welch Says Korn Has Big Plans About ‘Some Unique Projects’ That They’ll Announce Soon
In an interview with Rock Sound TV, Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch talked about the exciting plans of the band which they are planning to reveal within this year and confirmed that Korn is working on something a lot more cool than simply writing music.
As you may recall, back in 2019, Korn, known as the pioneers of the nu-metal genre, released their 13th and latest studio album named ‘The Nothing.’ The album, which received critical acclaim from music critics, involved 13 tracks. In January 2021, Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch revealed that the band has been working on a new album that might be released within 2021.
Recently, Welch joined an interview with Rock Sound TV and gave more details about the new album that Korn has been working on. During the conversation, Brian stated that they actually had some big plans to realize within this year. Apparently, the talented guitarist has been flying all over the country to meet with his bandmates so that they can work on the ‘cool stuff’ that will be released soon.
Additionally, Welch mentioned that the aim of him and his bandmates is to come up with unique ideas that are different than the easily predictable activity of most of the musicians during quarantine, writing new songs. Brian added that they are constantly brainstorming about doing something new and fresh since they have been in the music business for a long time now.
Welch also compared the excitement that Korn members have been feeling to create something unique to other bands that go away, including Tool, System of a Down, Disturbed, and Breaking Benjamin. He stated that unlike them, Korn is just regrouping and trying to come up with something fresh to make it exciting again for their devoted fans.
Here is what Brian Welch stated about the ‘cool stuff’ that Korn has been working on:
“We’ve got some big plans coming this year we’re gonna announce. I’ve been flying all over the place and seeing the Korn guys. And we have some really exciting news coming this year. So our fans are gonna be ready to do some cool stuff with us this year.
A lot of stuff has been going on. But, yeah, we’re trying to come up with some unique things. I know a lot of people are gonna come out with new music, because you’re stuck at home, and there’s nothing else to do but write music, so it’s pretty obvious that people are working on music. But we’re coming up with a lot more cool ideas than just music. We’re just really brainstorming about how to do something new and fresh. Because we’ve been around so long.
You’ve got bands like Tool and System of a Down — these other bands that go away. Even Disturbed was gone for, like five years. Breaking Benjamin was gone four years or something. Korn is always just ‘go, go, go.’ And so we’re really just regrouping and trying to come up with something fresh and new for 2021 and beyond, to just make it exciting again. Because we’re still excited. And so we wanna make things exciting for our fans and just have a good time. So we’ll be announcing something pretty soon.”
