Having a father like Metallica‘s Robert Trujillo must be pretty great, if only because you’re living with one hell of a bass instructor. Robert’s instruction must have done his son Tye Trujillo’s playing at least pretty damn well, considering the kid has been recruited by Korn to replace Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu during its South American trek later this month.

“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.”

Best of luck to Tye and Korn on the touring route! We’re looking forward to seeing and hearing footage of the shows.
