Korn are moving one step closer to permanently bringing former guitarist Brian “Head” Welch back into the fold, as the band has announced their first run with Head on guitar since 2004.

The news isn’t a complete shocker. Korn recently unveiled a list of European festival dates for this summer with the Christian rocker back on guitar, as well as a handful of U.S. festival shows at Rock on the Range, Rocklahoma and Rock Fest. Now, the guys are taking Head back on the road for a full headlining tour. Initial dates are below, and more are expected to be announced soon.
