Another member of Korn has tested positive for COVID-19.

The “Freak on a Leash” metallers revealed Thursday that guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer has contracted the virus. The news comes after frontman Jonathan Davis tested positive in August.

According to Korn’s statement, Munky is “doing OK,” but will miss some of the band’s upcoming tour dates.

“The tour is going on as scheduled despite these circumstances,” Korn wrote. “We are anticipating a speedy recovery.”

Korn’s tour will continue Thursday in West Valley City, Utah.

Davis, meanwhile, has recovered from his COVID bout, although as of last week he was still battling some lingering effects. As such, he’s been using a throne on stage to rest on during the show.
