Korn bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu revealed on Monday that he is taking a break from the band after falling back on some “bad habits.”
In a note posted on Facebook, Fieldy wrote, “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.”
Fieldy said he will work to get the bad habits out off his system, adding, “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.”
He also told his bandmates, Jonathan Davis, James “Munky” Shaffer, Ray Luzier and Brian “Head” Welch, “I love you and I don’t want to bring any tension or bad vibes to the circle.”
Fieldy is a founding member of the metal band and has featured on every album starting with their 1993 debut.
Meanwhile, Korn are set to embark on a co-headlining tour with Staind this summer with support from ’68 and Fire From the Gods.
