Former Korn star BRIAN `HEAD' WELCH is set to return to the limelight with a new solo album after taking a religious sabbatical from the music industry.
The guitarist stunned the rock world when he walked away from Korn in 2005, explaining he needed to care for his daughter, Jennea, as a single father and commit to his faith after becoming a born-again Christian.
But Welsh returned to the recording studio last year and his debut solo record, Save Me From Myself, will be released in September (08) on Driven Music Group - the label he co-founded.
The album features David Bowie and Peter Gabriel's long-serving session musician Tony Levin and A Perfect Circle star Josh Freese.
Welch says, "I'm really excited about getting my music out there to my fans. I literally poured everything I had into Save Me From Myself, and I know it's gonna inspire a lot of people.
"It's been a long time since I've connected with people musically, and now that the wounds have healed from my past addictions, I'm ready to feel the magic again."
