With the release of their highly anticipated new album – ‘Perfectly Preserved’ – and globally streamed album release concert only a week away, Love and Death, the anthemic hard rock project spearheaded by Brian ‘Head’ Welch (Korn) and Jasen Rauch (Breaking Benjamin) have revealed the full list of special guests joining them as they take to the stage for the first time in eight years. Joining the band for their epic streaming event on February 12th will be Lacey Sturm of Flyleaf, Keith Wallen of Breaking Benjamin and Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire. Tickets available here.
The band have also shared a clip of behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage for the event, which can be viewed here. The official trailer for the event can be viewed below.
Speaking on his excitement for the upcoming streaming event, Brian “Head” Welch shares: “Regarding the album release concert February 12, I’m actually quite shocked that we are going to pull off such an amazing event with some special very guests who live in different states–all during a world-wide pandemic!”
Love and Death have also treated fans to the third new track from ‘Perfectly Preserved’. Titled “The Hunter” and featuring Keith Wallen from Breaking Benjamin, the track is accompanied by a thought provoking lyric video providing a visual commentary to the lyrical theme of the song, showing the state our society currently finds itself in. The video for “The Hunter” can be found below.
Elaborating on the meaning behind the new track and its visual accompaniment, Welch adds: “We’ve been very fortunate to have such a professional team around this project to help us put out such quality content with our latest release. Our newest track “The Hunter” feat. Keith Wallen is no exception. Naro Studios along with Soft Surrogate really helped get our message across in “The Hunter” regarding the many different crises that our society in America has been facing as of late. It truly is a work of art.”
“The Hunter” follows the release of lead single “Down” which was released in November 2020, marking the band’s first new music in 8 years and subsequent track “White Flag“. Since its release, “Down” has hit 1.2 million total global streams to date with the official music video and lyric video amassing 937k YouTube views to date.
Love and Death will be treating fans to a once-in-a-lifetime, globally streamed concert event, taking place the same day that “Perfectly Preserved” is released – Friday, February 12th – at 5pm PST/7pm CST/8pm EST. The stream will be available to ticket holders on demand for 48 hours after the initial broadcast.
The event features songs from both the new album, “Perfectly Preserved,” as well as several tracks off 2013’s “Between Here and Los”t and will feature several guest performances from Lacey Sturm of Flyleaf, Keith Wallen of Breaking Benjamin and Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire
