Korn have announced that Fieldy will not be able to perform at the band’s upcoming run across Latin America, recruiting Rob Trujillo’s 12-year-old son Tye as temporary replacement.
The band’s statement reads: “On April 17 Korn is heading down to South America for a run of dates in Columbia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Peru.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Fieldy is unable to make the shows so the band will be joined by a special guest. Filling in for bass duties will be Tye Trujillo, the 12-year old son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo and member of NorCal group The Helmets.”
The gang further stated: “We are bummed Fieldy can’t join us on this run but excited to do a few gigs with a young player like Tye. We look forward to welcoming our brother Fieldy back when we return to the States in May.”
Fieldy is set to rejoin the trek at Carolina Rebellion on May 6.
