Fieldy Announces Hiatus from KORN

Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu says he's fell back on some "bad habits" and needs some time to heal.

Korn bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu has just released a statement saying he is taking a hiatus from Korn due to falling back "on some bad habits" in the last six years.

While Fieldy is not too descriptive on what those bad habits are, it seems that the band felt it would be best if he took a break and worked on his issues and he agreed to do so. Other than a few short breaks, this will be the first time in the 28 year history of the band that will be without Fieldy, a founding member of the band.

His full 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.

Fieldy

There is no word yet on who will be replacing him. Korn have a big tour lined up for this summer with Staind, so surely a decision will be made by then.
