KORN bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu has taken up expressive mixed media painting and is auctioning off autographed prints of some of his recent work.
Arvizu revealed his latest passion in a Facebook post, writing: "From February 2018-February 2019, during a difficult time in my life, I unexpectedly began a journey of mixed media painting on canvas. The result are these 10 characters I created that I call 'Izms.' Without any real knowledge of what I was doing, I just dove in and found a place of creative peace. Now I'm excited to share 'Izms' with you."

Now 49, Fieldy has evolved from the depths of hedonism to become a sober, born-again father of three. With the help of a ghostwriter, in 2009 he published his autobiography, "Got The Life: My Journey Of Addiction, Faith, Recovery, And Korn". He told Miami New Times in a 2015 interview: "It didn't really get too much attention, but I was trying to maybe help people not make my mistakes. If I did it again, maybe I would have changed names or released it as fiction, because some people felt I threw them under the bus by naming them. Maybe I didn't see things from their perspective and could have been more compassionate."
KORN and ALICE IN CHAINS will embark on an epic co-headline amphitheater tour across North America this summer. UNDEROATH will join as special guest on all dates, with HO99O9 and FEVER 333 opening on select dates. Produced by Live Nation, the 30-city outing will kick off July 18 in Del Valle, Texas at Austin360 Amphitheatre and make stops in Dallas, Nashville, Toronto, Denver and more before wrapping September 4 in Mountain View, California at Shoreline Amphitheatre.
KORN is currently working on material for a new album, tentatively due in the fall. The follow-up to 2016's "The Serenity Of Suffering", which is once again being produced by Nick Raskulinecz, will feature songwriting collaborations with GOLDFINGER's John Feldmann, while BLINK-182's Travis Barker recorded the "temporary drums" on some of the early demos.
