About The Album
On January 22, 2013, Brian "Head" Welch (Korn) released Between Here & Lost, the debut album of his band Love and Death on Tooth & Nail Records and EMI. The album peaked at #81 on the Billboard 200, #5 on both Hard Rock Albums and Christian Albums charts. It was also #28 on Top Rock Albums. The project was produced by Jasen Rauch (RED, Breaking Benjamin). Along with Rauch and Welch, the band also included longtime guitar protege J.R. Baries (Spoken, Islander). Ten years later, these artists are still important collaborators for Welch outside of Korn.
Between Here & Lost produced three singles, "Chemicals" (#6 on Billboard's Hot Singles chart and #4 on Christian Rock), "The Abandoning" (#6 Christian Rock), and "Meltdown" (#14 Christian Rock). The album also featured appearances by artists like Joe Rickard (Red), who helped with drums, Matt Baird (Spoken) who did background vocals on the band's cover of "Whip It", and Mattie Montgomery (For Today) who was a featured artist on "I W8 4 U".
It was while on tour for this album that Welch would reunite with his bandmates in Korn when he made an impromptu visit to see the band at the Carolina Rebellion in Rockingham, NC May 5th, 2012. Love and Death was on tour with Red and Welch was a special guest in Red's performance at the event. Welch and his bandmates in Korn had an incredible and emotional re-connection that led to Jonathan Davis inviting Welch on stage during the Korn set to perform with the band for the first time since his departure in 2005. Welch returned to Korn, after a seven year absence, shortly after the release of Between Here & Lost. Soon after his return, the band released Paradigm Shift, the first album recorded with Welch in ten years, producing the single "Never Never" which became Korn's first #1 single at Mainstream Rock.
It would be eight years before Love and Death would release new music with 2021's Perfectly Preserved and the complimenting DVD / Live Album Perfectly Preserved Live. Between Here & Lost holds an important place in Welch's career both as the beginning of Love and Death as a vital platform for Welch's solo work, and also as a catalyst to his return to Korn. The album has been a favorite with his dedicated and loyal fan base and to celebrate the albums 10th Anniversary, Blind Tiger Records and Girder Records have partnered to re-release the album on CD and, for the first time ever, on Vinyl. The CD is the deluxe edition with special packaging to include an O-card and a trading card with a 12-page booklet. The Vinyl comes in Standard Black Vinyl and Indie Exclusive with Transparent Blue Vinyl. Both the CD and Vinyl include a personal letter from Welch to Love and Death fans.
