Sevendust guitarist Clint Lowery is taking a step back from the road temporarily, but the band has moved quickly to fill the void, selecting Evanescence's Troy McLawhorn to sit in on guitar during Lowery's absence. The Sevendust rocker is taking the time away to be at home with his lovely wife Tara as they await the birth of their daughter. This will be the couple's second child. They wed in 2010
Today (March 4) marks 10 years since the release of Evanescence’s landmark debut disc ‘Fallen,’ and Wind-up Records is re-issuing the album on limited edition purple vinyl (seen on the left). Pre-ordering is currently under way, with a May 21 ship date on the colorful anniversary release.
Evanescence fans had to wait five years between 'The Open Door' and last year's self-titled album, and now singer Amy Lee is suggesting that fans may have to once again wait a while for album number four.
Evanescence will wrap up their headlining run on the 2012 Carnival of Madness tour tonight (Sept. 2) in Buffalo, N.Y. In an interview conducted at the Atlantic City, N.J. stop earlier in the run, Amy Lee and the band talk about the influence of relationships on their writing, working together as a cohesive unit, stage clothes and even pigtails.
Evanescence rose to mainstream success early in their career, but with their release of their latest self-titled disc, founding member Amy Lee considers her band more of an underground success. As the band kicks off the Carnival of Madness tour, Lee sat down with Fuse to talk about touring with Halestorm, her writing process and why she thinks Evanescence never fit in.
