Contrary to the rumors that DROID has left KORN's Bitch! We Have A Problem tour, the Long Beach, California-based band continues to destroy the stage, and DROID guitarist Jamie Teissere has broken his silence to clear the air about rumors of his group being sent home.

"The rumors are not true," says Jamie. "We are on our way to Tucson, Arizona as we speak and will continue until the end of the tour."

KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer got into a scuffle with Teissere last week at a stop in Little Rock, Arkansas on the Bitch! We Have A Problem tour. According to several reports, Shaffer was apparently drunk when the incident occurred and has taken "total responsibility" for the fight. KORN singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse of Radio that Shaffer spoke about it himself the next night on stage. "That's how it all came out," he said. "He's all, 'Last night I got really drunk and one of my best friends kicked my ass and I deserved it, and that's why they're not here tonight, and that's that.' He just wanted to get it, so...everything's cool now."

DROID is signed to Shaffer's label, Emotional Syphon Recordings, and released its self-titled debut album earlier this year. Shaffer recently said that he and DROID guitarist Jamie Teissere have been "friends for a long time."

Munky could not be reached for comment, but Emotional Syphon representative Christy Priske had this to say: "The band and label bond is as strong as ever. The band has not been asked to leave the tour. Jamie and Munky have been best friends for years and the reported fight they got in was nothing more than a drunken scuffle that ended in apologies. All is well in both camps and DROID are moving forward to finish the tour."
