KORN has released the following statement:
"Fieldy [bassist Reginald Arvizu] and his wife are expecting a child this August! While Fieldy is home with his family for this incredible new arrival, bassist Ryan Martinie of MUDVAYNE has graciously agreed to fill in on the road for some of the upcoming shows.
"We are so happy for Fieldy and his family, and welcome Ryan onboard for these select shows!"
Fieldy married Dena Beber on May 13, 2006 at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Spa in Dana Point, California. It was her first marriage and his third. Fieldy has two daughters, Sarina and Olivia Arvizu, from his second marriage from Shela Arvizu; he and Dena had a son in early 2007 and named him Israel.
Fieldy's 2009 memoir, "Got The Life: My Journey Of Addiction, Faith, Recovery And Korn", details his struggles with drug and alcohol addiction during KORN's early years and how he became a born-again Christian to help get his life together and get sober.
KORN will play some shows in Europe this month before they co-headline the fourth annual ShipRocked, the ultimate rock music cruise vacation which sails November 27 - December 1.
