LOUD KRAZY LOVE, a new documentary that details the harrowing journey of KoRn co-founder Brian Welch will be released exclusively in Australia at Event Cinemas May 15, 2019.
Brian Welch (48), also known by his stage name Head, is an American musician, singer and songwriter. He is one of the guitarists and founding member of the nu metal band Korn. Along with fellow Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer, Welch helped develop Korn’s distinctive sound.
The legacy of Korn is in their 90s spearheading of the nu metal that broke away from the fuzzy screams of vocals and thick pounding arrangments. They carved out a new niche that satisfied a more mainstream musical palette with their emphasis on short riffs and melody, revitalising a once cult sound following.
After becoming a born again Christian, Welch left the band in 2005 to focus on life as a father and to pursue his own solo career. He reunited with Korn on-stage at the Carolina Rebellion in 2012 for the first time in seven years, and in 2013, officially announced rejoining the band.
It’s directed by Trey Hill, a documentary and commercial director, has journeyed across five continents tin pursuit of telling the stories of the planet’s most revered and most overlooked people.
Scott Mayo, (Writer, Director, Cinematographer and Editor) is a two time Emmy nominated film maker whose work across all mediums is unified by emotionally potent non-fiction story telling. This is his first feature film.
The sound Brian “Head” Welch helped pioneer with KoRn in the early ‘90s provided identity to a generation of misfits and made him a global rock star. Famous, wealthy, and worshipped in the spotlight, an adolescent self-loathing relentlessly haunted him in the shadows – until the day a tiny miracle was born. By the time he walked out on a $23M record deal in 2005, desperate to kick a devastating crystal meth habit, all he wanted was to become a good father.
LOUD KRAZY LOVE follows the experiences of Brian and his daughter Jennea growing up together with chaotic courage and unconventional faith. Far beyond a rock documentary, this fearless coming-of-age story grapples with teenage depression, the quest for identity, and the hope of a father willing to do anything for the one he loves.
