Loud Krazy Love is the unconventional new documentary chronicling the chaotic and unexpectedly uplifting life story of Brian “Head” Welch, best known as guitarist and co-founder of KoRn.
The 86-minute documentary directed by Trey Hill and Scott Mayo will make its Texas premiere at the Dallas International Film Festival May 3-10 and another premier during the Nashville Film Festival May 10-19.
This film features exclusive tour and home access, as well as interviews with Brian, his family and his KoRn bandmates, “Loud Krazy Love” subverts the standard sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll narrative to explore his identity as a father and the complicated relationship he shares with his daughter Jennea.
“The intimate details of Brian and Jennea’s life during the years he was absent from KoRn are turbulent,” said Mayo. “‘Loud Krazy Love’ is really a backstage pass to heartache and triumph. You don’t have to be a KoRn fan to empathize with Brian’s decision to sacrifice all his success in an attempt to be a good father.”
The sound Brian pioneered with KoRn in the early ‘90s helped provide identity to a generation of misfits and made him a global rock star. Famous, wealthy and worshipped in the spotlight, a relentless self-loathing haunted him in the shadows. Until the day a tiny miracle reset the course of his life.
“Loud Krazy Love” takes viewers through a coming-of-age journey filled with chaos, doubt, and faith. The story grapples with teenage depression, the quest for identity, and the dedication of an imperfect but present father willing to do anything for his daughter.
“In my life I’ve done so many things I regret and wish that I could change,” said Brian. “It can feel haunting. But seeing my entire life with KoRn and my family play out before my eyes in this film, and seeing the positive that has come from my most embarrassing and devastating failures – there are no words to express my gratitude. Our team created a very special film here, and I can’t wait for the world to see it.”
Production of the film covered four years and includes two decades worth of never-before-seen material from Brian, his family and KoRn. The result is a remarkable cinematic experience of amplified emotion, rock ‘n’ roll access and restorative love.
Wide release of “Loud Krazy Love” is expected in the fall. For additional information or to buy tickets to the Nashville or Dallas International Film Festivals, visit LoudKrazyLove.com.
