Nu-metal icons Korn are set to go tour Stain this August with Staind. However, their bassist Reginald Arvizu, best known as Fieldy, won’t be amongst the rest of the band. Today, he announced this on social media and explained he is taking some time off to heal and work towards what he describes as “bad habits” out of his system.

To all Korn fans worldwide.

The past 6 years I’ve been dealing with some personal issues that at times have caused me to fall back on some of my bad habits and has caused some tension with the people around me. It’s been suggested to me to take some time off to heal. I’m going to respect what was asked of me and take that time. Unfortunately you will not see me on stage with my band.

I will be working towards getting the bad habits out of my system. In the meantime I will be staying creative to keep my mind & soul in a good place. I’m thankful for all of your support, patience & understanding as we all have something that we deal with.

Jonathan, Munky, Ray and Head, I love you and I don’t want to bring any tension or bad vibes to the circle.



Fieldy last took a break from the band in 2012 as his wife was pregnant. At that time, Ryan Martinie from Mudvayne filled in for him. It isn’t known as of writing who will be filling in for him later this year.
