Korn: Fieldy ‘Wasn’t Quite Ready’ to go back on tour, according to Munky

Posted by on June 27, 2022


Hellfest, Clisson, France: Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer was asked about the current status of the band’s bassist, Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu.

Fieldy announced last year that he would sit out Korn’s ongoing tour in order to “heal” after “falling back” on some of his “bad habits.”

Munky said about Fieldy:

“He needed a little time at home with his family to kind of regroup. We decided we were gonna make a record during the pandemic and use that time constructively. And once the pandemic was over and we were ready to go back on the road, he wasn’t quite ready to do that yet. So the rest of us were anxious to get back in front of our fans and play for everybody.”

Earlier in the month you may remember, we told you that Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch had “been in contact” with Fieldy.

Welsh said, “I just e-mailed him the other day, so we’re gonna get together and talk to him, see how he’s doing, see where his head is at, after this tour. Me and Munk were just talking about it. We love him, we’ve been in communication with him, and we’ll see.”

A year ago, Fieldy broke the news of his absence from Korn’s summer tour in a social media update:

“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.”

Korn’s Requiem was released on February 4 via Loma Vista Recordings.
