With Korn and ex-guitarist Brian "Head" Welch reuniting for four shows this spring and summer -- two in Germany, one in the U.S. and one in England -- the next question is whether a full tour or a new album together is possible. Welch told Rolling Stone, "We're going slow. We're hanging out when I've got time, but I've got my album out, and they're busy doing their stuff. But I'd say anything is possible right now."

Welch added, "For people to see this, I think it's just really uplifting. I never thought it would happen, and I'm not sure they did either. The fans just love it, because a lot of the fans back in the day were like, suicidal, and from broken homes and abuse. They looked up to us like their family. And to see their family split up was hard on them. To get it put back together, there is a joy around the people who care about it."

Welch was also asked whether he thought Korn would ever consider playing one full album live from front to back. He replied, "I think that would be kind of cool to do somewhere, sometime. Like the very first (self-titled 1994 debut)."

The guitarist has just released a new album with his band Love And Death and plans to tour in support of it.

Korn has recently been working on the follow-up to its 10th studio album, 2011's The Path Of Totality.

Welch will play with Korn in the U.S. at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio this May.
