Korn guitarist's Love & Death: debut album to be re-released as 'deluxe' edition
"Between Here & Lost", the debut album from Love & Death, the band led by Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch, will be re-released soon as a "deluxe" edition containing as-yet-undisclosed bonus material.

Professionally filmed video footage of Love & Death's appearance at this year's edition of the Rock Am Ring festival on June 7 in Nürburgring, Germany can be seen below (courtesy of Dasding).

"Between Here & Lost" sold around 4,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 95 on The Billboard 200 chart. The Cd was originally issued on January 22 via Tooth & Nail Records.

Recorded in Nashville with producer Jasen Rauch (Red, Breaking Benjamin) and mixed by Paul Pavao, Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Disturbed) and Jim Monti (Korn), "Between Here & Lost" consists of 11 tracks, ranging from songs about personal struggle and triumph ("Chemicals", "My Disaster", "Paralyzed") to emotionally charged anthems ("Fading Away", "Watching The Bottom Fall") to a riff-heavy rendition of Devo's 1980 hit "Whip It".

Love And Death is comprised of Welch, lead guitarist Jr Bareis, bassist Michael Valentine, and drummer Dan Johnson.

Like the album title suggests, "Between Here & Lost" captures the honesty of light and darkness, beauty and tragedy, good and evil, delivered by a band with intense passion and commitment to the message of its music.

"This record was birthed from trials, tribulations, pain, suffering, anxiety, depression, and drama," stated Welch. "However, we came out on top and the end result is a very real, raw and honest record. We are so stoked for people to hear it! From our opening song, 'The Abandoning', to our cover of Devo's 'Whip it', to our collaboration with Mattie Montgomery from For Today on 'I W8 4 U', It's an exciting piece of art and the listener will feel the different range of emotions with the lyrics and melodies of each song."

Love And Death formed when Welch decided to have open auditions on YouTube in 2009. "I picked the guys and then had a jam session in Phoenix," says Welch. "Over the last couple of years, there have been a few lineup changes as we went through normal growing pains. The current band has been together and touring for a while now and they are a big part of the new music and the future of Love And Death."
