Korn guitarist and founding member Brian “Head” Welch has announced the release of his new book, With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles and Mistakes on My Way Back to Korn. The work, scheduled to drop May 17 from Nelson Books, details the eight years following 2005 when he revealed his decision to leave Korn up until 2013 when he rejoined his metal family. It will be accompanied with photos from his personal collection, as well.

Welch previously penned Save Me from Myself in 2007, and the follow up, Washed in Blood, considered the “clean” version of the former memoir. You can preorder the book from Amazon.
