Korn fans were thrilled at the news that the band will tour with Stone Sour this summer—and they’ll be joined by an unusual collaborator. Tye Trujillo, the 12-year old son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, will join Korn as a featured bassist during their South American dates. The band’s grown-up bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu couldn’t make those dates due to “unforeseen circumstances,” so a seventh-grader seems like the next best thing.
The band released a statement on Facebook welcoming Trujillo into the fold.
“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.”
