Reignited by Brian 'Head' Welch (KORN) and Jasen Rauch (BREAKING BENJAMIN), anthemic hard rock project LOVE AND DEATH have followed up the release of their first new song in 8 years last month with the release of the official music video for "Down" (watch on KNAC.COM HERE) and the announcement of the Perfectly Preserved Album Release Global Streaming Event which will take place February 12th, 2021 at 5pm PST/7pm CST/8pm EST and will coincide with the release of the band's new full length, Perfectly Preserved (pre-order from www.loveanddeathmusic.com). Tickets for this once in a lifetime streaming event are on sale now from loveanddeath.veeps.com<>p On release day for their new album, Perfectly Preserved - Friday, February 12, 2021 - LOVE AND DEATH will be streaming a special album release concert event. The event will start at 5pm PST/7:00pm CST/8pm EST and run for 48 hours. Fans who have purchased tickets can view the event anytime during that 48 hour window.

The event features songs from both the new album, Perfectly Preserved, as well as several tracks off 2013's Between Here and Lost and will feature several surprise guest performances.

Tickets and bundles are available now with shirts, CDs, Vinyl, and even a very limited guitar bundle signed by all the band and guest performers at the event. Head to loveanddeath.veeps.com for full info and to purchase.

Speaking on the LOVE AND DEATH's first concert in 7 years, Brian ‘Head’ Welch shares:

"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! This concert is going to be something totally new for us. We've all had the privilege of playing concerts for decades and have traveled 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; first LOVE AND DEATH show in 7 years!!!"

LOVE AND DEATH began with the similar raw, authentic emotional honesty that drove singer/guitarist Brian “Head” Welch to multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning heights as a cofounder of genre trailblazers KORN. Forged as an outlet for recovery and redemption in a season of change, the formation of LOVE AND DEATH resulted in the dynamic 2013 debut Between Here & Lost. The album spoke plainly to the hearts of similarly disenfranchised fans all across the world.

LOVE AND DEATH now return with Perfectly Preserved, a crushing yet accessible full-length follow-up, driven by the spiritual resilience inherent in the first record, combined with an even starker depiction of real-life struggle. Anger, broken relationships, lowered self-worth, and the collision of optimistic values with oppressive systems are all on display, from the arresting refrains of “Tragedy”, “Death of Us” and “Affliction”, to the bold, conqueror driven anthem of “White Flag". Simply put, it is heavy music to vigorously confront depression, heartbreak, and pain.

Perfectly Preserved marks the introduction of guitarist, bassist and co-songwriter Jasen Rauch as a full-fledged member of the band, as well as second time producer for LOVE AND DEATH (co-production from Joe Rickard). Jasen, best known as an integral part of chart-topping rockers BREAKING BENJAMIN, produced LOVE AND DEATH’s first album in 2013. Completing this definitive lineup as they charge into this new chapter are the band’s original guitarist, JR Bareis, who now shares vocals with Welch, and powerhouse drummer Isaiah Perez.

Much like A PERFECT CIRCLE or STONE SOUR, LOVE AND DEATH isn’t a “side project” or replacement for the guys’ respective bands. It’s an extension and companion, offering each of them a unique outlet to explore different aspects of their creative passions.

“There are certain things we can do melodically in LOVE AND DEATH that might not work in KORN,” Rauch explains. “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.”

It’s also an opportunity for further collaboration with their friends from other bands. “The Hunter” features Jasen’s BREAKING BENJAMIN bandmate (and solo artist) Keith Wallen, who was also a major co-writer on the project, and longtime comrade and former FLYLEAF singer, Lacey Sturm lends her vocals to a metallic rendition of a surprising pop cover.

PERFECTLY PRESERVED TRACK LISTING

  • "Infamy"
  • "Tragedy"
  • "Down"
  • "Let Me Love You" (feat Lacey Sturm)
  • "Death Of Us"
  • "Slow Fire"
  • "The Hunter" (feat. Keith Wallen)
  • "Lo Lamento"
  • "Affliction"
  • "White Flag" (feat Ryan Hayes)
As their fans have learned to expect, LOVE AND DEATH are fearless in their open examination of contradictions and failure, making confessional music with an underlying anchor of purpose and hope. Like the band’s very moniker suggests, both ‘Love’ and ‘Death’ are very present in all that they do.
