FIELDY On Making New STILLWELL Music: "It Has Nothing To Do With KORN Or My Status With KORN"

"We've always wrote Stillwell music while on tour with Korn or at home."

Korn bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu went on hiatus from Korn in June 2021 after "falling back on some bad habits in the last six years." Fieldy has not yet made his return to the band, but did recently announce he's moving forward with his other project Stillwell. This of course prompted the obvious question of "what does this mean in terms of his return to Korn?" The short answer is "nothing, really."

In a Facebook post, Fieldy said Stillwell and Korn have always been two separate things and that this all has zero to do with his hiatus.

"Some clarity about Stillwell," he said in a post. "I've been doing Stillwell for about 16 years, this isn't something new, although to some of you it is, that's cool."

"Along with my bros Wuv (POD) and Q (Arsonists, Radamus), we’ve put out 3 albums, we’re about to drop our 4th. It has nothing to do with Korn or my status with Korn or anything else. It isn’t Heavy music, it’s alternative rock. We’ve always wrote Stillwell music while on tour with Korn or at home.

"We’ve actually opened for Korn back in 2011, and to add one more little fact, the 1st Stillwell video 'Killing Myself to Live' was during a Korn concert (2006), back when David [Silveria, drummer] was in Korn, he’s in the video, that’s how far back Stillwell goes. Again, it isn’t metal or nu metal or heavy music, and that was my way of being respectful to the integrity of Korn, I knew Stillwell had to be different.

"Thank you to those who have shown love and support and to those that aren’t into Stillwell, there’s plenty of heavy bands out there to fulfill your needs."

According to guitarist Brian "Head" WelchKorn and Fieldy will reconvene after Korn wraps up their tour with Evanescence on September 16. "We've been in contact with him," he 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."
