In a recent interview with Abel to Do Anything, Brian “Head” Welch of Korn discussed the band’s lack of social media presence and the reasons behind their modest profile. The host brought up the gap in their YouTube content during his presence. When asked why there was such a large lapse in time between the videos, the rock star explained as follows: “I believe it’s simply because we’re in this season of retreating and entering because you have to give people a break and just kind of go away when you have a big cycle and when you tour the world sometimes markets twice.”
Welch continued speaking about how active their social media pages were, saying: We’re still using Facebook and Instagram, but we’re not posting anything on YouTube right now. Instead, we’re just letting things exist, breathing life into them, and taking a break before maybe stepping things up next year. He also gave an explanation of why he plays metal, quoting the Bible: “People ask me how I manage to follow Jesus and play metal while also being spiritual. I completely get it. I thought to myself, “What is metal? It’s shouting. The Bible says to give a shout to the Lord.”
