KORN bassist Fieldy has announced that he’ll be taking a hiatus from the band. In a post shared earlier today (June 21) Fieldy mentioned some of his “bad habits” that have caused problems within the group and with his loved ones.
Fieldy writes: 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’s break from the band will be his first, aside from short stints in 2012 and 2017 when Ryan Martinie and then Tye Trujillo filled in for the KORN bassist.
KORN have not yet commented on Fieldy’s hiatus.
