“I’ll feel guilt for the rest of my fucking life because of that,” he continued. “I tried my best but maybe if I was a little more strict there would have been a different result. I pray he can figure it out and get better and come back and be a big part of this band again.”

Welch said that “the best thing to do is to stay home, be with your family, and start processing” and that his bandmates “have to find that treatment.”

“I still struggle with it,” Welch told Kerrang!, “There was something wrong with my ‘bad habits’ three to four years ago, so I understand that, but I dealt with it by hitting it on the head and stopping it from becoming a problem. I’m not worried because I know she’s okay.” Will be done.”

Arvizu’s hiatus saw him sit out on the band’s most recent tour, but he would appear on their upcoming album Requiem. Their 14th studio album, led by the single ‘Start the Healing’, arrives on February 4, 2022, via Loma Vista.


During Korn’s recent tour, it was revealed that three members of the band had contracted COVID-19: Davis, guitarist James ‘Munky’ Schaefer, and drummer Ray Luzier. While each event caused them to postpone some tour dates, the band was still performing in select cities. About two weeks after his diagnosis, Davis returned to perform with the band, albeit sitting on thrones through most of their set.

Earlier this month, Davis opened up on his battle with COVID-19, saying the experience “stunned” him.
