Songfacts®:

  • Love and Death is an American band formed by Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch. Joining him on this single are Breaking Benjamin's Jasen Rauch, who also produced the song, JR Bareis from Islander and Red's Dan Johnson. Welch shares vocal duties on the track with Bareis.
  • 'Lo lamento' is a Spanish phrase meaning 'I am sorry.' Welch told Loudwire the story of the track: "'Lo Lamento' is a song that came from an idea producer Jasen Rauch and writer Mark Holeman had on our last album, Between Here And Lost. It was actually the original chorus for our song 'I W8 4 U', but it sounded way too melodic for that crushing song, as you can imagine. To me, 'Lo Lamento' paints a picture lyrically about infidelity and a once picture perfect relationship left in ruins."
  • The song was given away as a free download to everyone who purchases Welch's book, With My Eyes Wide Open: Miracles And Mistakes On My Way Back To Korn, via his webstore at BrianHeadWelch.net.
  • "Lo Lamento" was included on Perfectly Preserved, Love & Death's first album since Between Here & Lost, which came out in 2013.
