KORN bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu sat out the band's shows in Europe last month so that he could be home for the birth of his child. Filling in for him was Ryan Martinie of MUDVAYNE.
An 11-minute video clip of Martinie talking about his involvement with KORN can be seen below.
It's been almost three years since MUDVAYNE released its self-titled fifth album and little has been heard about the band since then. But in a late 2010 interview with the music blog Warwick, Martinie discussed the group almost entirely in the past tense. When asked about the quartet's musical evolution, Martinie said, "I think that what we did is valuable. It's become a cog in the wheel of music in some sort of way. We are a piece of musical history now . . . We were always just responding to our environment. I always saw the band to be important as an aspect of my life, as something that was supposed to take us places that are positive, and in that sense everything that happened with the band has happened for a reason."
MUDVAYNE did not tour behind its fifth album, which was barely promoted and sold weakly upon release.
KORN will co-headline the fourth annual ShipRocked, the ultimate rock music cruise vacation which sails November 27 - December 1.
