Korn drummer Ray Luzier has tested positive for COVID-19.

The “Freak on a Leash” metallers announced the news in an Instagram post Thursday, adding that Luzier will be absent from their upcoming shows taking place on October 15 in Las Vegas; October 16 in Fresno, California; and October 18 in Oakland, California.

For those dates, drum duties will be handled by Aric Improta of FEVER 333. Luzier is expected to be back on stage with Korn for their Los Angeles dates with System of a Down on October 22 and 23.

Luzier is now the third member of Korn to contract COVID-19. Frontman Jonathan Davis tested positive back in August, while guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer came down with the virus in September.
