When Korn isn’t touring across the globe playing songs their frontman hates, they dedicate to other creative stuff like making country music or writing books. Korn guitarist, terrible tattoo idea wearer, and born-again Christian Brian “Head” Welch will be releasing a new book titled With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles and Mistakes on My Way Back to Korn, where he talks about, well, the miracles and mistakes on his way back to Korn.
The synopsis for the book reads as follows:
“A life-changing spiritual awakening freed Brian “Head” Welch from a stranglehold of drugs and alcohol and prompted him to leave the highly successful nu-metal band KoRn in 2005. What followed was a 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 the shattering betrayal of a trusted friend. In this intensely inspiring redemption saga, perhaps most inspiring is Brian’s radical decision to rejoin KoRn and reconcile with the tribe of people he once considered family in the metal music scene.
Brian returned to his musical roots with a clear head and a devoted heart. Though his story is wild, hilarious, and deeply poignant, the message is simple: God will love you into the freedom of being yourself, as long as you keep the relationship going and never, ever quit.”
You can pre-order the book now via Amazon and you can also get it as an audio version read by Welch himself, as he revealed on his Instagram:
