Brian Welch said: “When I reached out to the Love and Death band members, crew and special guests about the arduous task of aligning everyone’s schedules, everyone was like ‘let me check my schedule…, yep, totally free that day!’

“I guess that is the popular answer for all musicians this year! This concert is going to be something totally new for us.

“We have all had the privilege of playing concerts for decades and have traveled the world many times over, but putting together a global streaming event with so many talented musicians and sharing vocals with these amazing singers is a first for me!

“This is without a doubt a once in a lifetime experience for Love and Death and we are calling all Love and Death fans around the globe to join us for this very special one time event; first Love and Death show in 7 years!!!”

A new track, ‘White Flag’, has been released featuring Ryan Hayes from Righteous Vendetta.
