Korn Guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer Temporarily Drops Out Of Ongoing North American Tour

Jon Stickler 09 August 2019

Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer has dropped out of five shows on the band's current North American tour alongside Alice In Chains.

The guitarist is taking time out to be with his wife as they await the birth of their daughter. His spot is being filled by J.R. Bareis, who previously played in guitarist Brian "Head" Welch's solo project Love and Death. Munky broke the news via a statement on the band's official social media pages:

"Since our family is waiting any day now for the birth of our daughter, I won't be performing starting on Tuesday, August 6 through Sunday, August 11. I'll be back in Detroit. I'm going to miss you all very much on those dates.

But, you're in great hands with our close friend and brother J.R. Bareis who is filling in for me... and of course the rest of Korn who will carry the load. Thank you to all of our fans for your understanding and support!"

Korn recently released Cold, the second track to be shared from their new album 'The Nothing', which is out on September 13 via Roadrunner Records.
