KORN members have send words of support for bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, who will sit out the band’s upcoming tour in order to “heal” after “falling back” on some of his “bad habits.”
Yesterday, Fieldy announced that he will be taking “some time off” from the band after “dealing with some personal issues” for the past years.
He wrote in a statement: “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.
A short time later, KORN‘s official social media shared Fieldy‘s statement, along with the following message: “We love and support our brother, Fieldy. Health and family always comes first.”
