Last month, Love And Death announced their return after an eight-year hiatus.
The project, led by Korn’s Brian ‘Head’ Welch and featuring Breaking Benjamin’s Jasen Rauch, will release their long-awaited second studio album Perfectly Preserved on February 12, 2021. But it’s not just enough to drop a record these days, so the release is will also be marked by a global livestream event, featuring an array of special guests for a mix of new and old hits.
“When I reached out to the Love And Death band members, crew and special guests about the arduous task of aligning everyone’s schedules, everyone was like, ‘Let me check my schedule…, yep, totally free that day!’ I guess that’s the popular answer for all musicians this year!” says Head, adding that the livestream will be the band’s first show in seven years.
“This concert is going to be something totally new for us. We’ve all had the privilege of playing concerts for decades and have travelled the world many times over, but putting together a global streaming event with so many talented musicians and sharing vocals with these amazing singers is a first for me.
This is without a doubt a once in a lifetime experience for Love And Death and we are calling all Love And Death fans around the globe to join us for this very special one time event.”
To get a taste of what’s in store on the new album, the band have also released an official video for comeback single Down.

“I feel like what our world needs most in this very unique moment in time are real stories about overcoming struggle. These are honest songs co-written by our group of friends targeting depression/mental health, challenging relationships, trauma, loneliness, and related issues,” said Head previously, addressing Love And Death’s upcoming album.
“There are certain things we can do melodically in Love and Death that might not work in Korn,” continued Jasen, who also produced the band’s 2013 Between Here & Lost debut.“For me, there are certain creative risks I can take with the arrangements and production that wouldn’t fit with Breaking Benjamin. In this band, we don’t worry about how long a song might be, for example.”
Love And Death’s Perfectly Preserved livestream takes place on February 12, 2021 at 1am UK time/8pm EST/5pm PST.
