The album marks the return of co-founding guitarist Brian “Head” Welch. The last Korn album Welch played on was 2003’s Take A Look In The Mirror. Working with producer Don Gilmore, Korn recorded the album at Los Angeles’ NRG Recording Studios and in the band’s Bakersfield, Calif., hometown at Buck Owens’ studio.

“These shows are for diehards,” Korn’s Jonathan Davis said.  “Can’t wait to play the new songs form TPS and expect some surprise blasts from the past too because Head’s back!”
