In the documentary trailer, Welch says about his reasons for quitting KORN: “In 2005, it’s a blur because I was on like three different kinds of methamphetamine, but all I know is I wasn’t happy, I didn’t like being in the band, I didn’t like most of the guys and I didn’t like myself more than anything. Being a drug addict, not liking your surroundings and trying to raise a daughter all at the same time; it just doesn’t really work. Something needed to give. Something needed to change and I didn’t care what the cost was gonna be. I needed to live. I needed to come back to life because I was almost dead.”
Singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio what the experience was like having Welch back in the studio, making this record extra special.”‘Untouchables’ used to be my favorite, but this one’s mine now,” he said. “You know, it’s just all those years of work and being able to be in a band this long with the guys. And having Head back bringing, you know, that old chemistry back with him with Munky on the rock side and I was on the electronic side. It was good having the compromise on both sides. It was just good for the creative process, I think.”
Songs on the new set, which was recorded with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, LACUNA COIL) at Buck Owens‘ studio in KORN‘s original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles’s famed NRG Recording Studios, include first single “Never Never”, “Prey For Me”, “Spike In My Veins”, “Mass Hysteria”, “Paranoid And Aroused” and “Victimized”.
