“To all Korn fans worldwide.

For 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 have 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.
