Love and Death - Between Here & LostLove & Death, the band led by former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, will re-issue its debut album “Between Here & Lost”  as an expanded edition September 17th via Tooth & Nail Records. Recorded in Nashville with producer Jasen Rauch (RED, Breaking Benjamin) and mixed by Paul Pavao & Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Slipknot), and Jim Monti (Korn), the “Expanded Edition” will feature 3 new tracks in addition to the 11 songs on the original release.

The band recently released the video for the song “Meltdown”, it can be viewed at this location:

Love & Death is comprised of Brian “Head” 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” states Welch. “However, we came out on top and the end result is a very real, raw & 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 & melodies of each song.”
