Troy McLawhorn Rejoins Evanescence?
A few weeks back, we reported that Troy McLawhorn had left Seether to pursue other interests. At the time, a lot of fans were caught off guard by his sudden departure, especially considering Seether had just put the finishing touches on their album, Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray.
Earlier today, Seether's frontman, Shaun Morgan took to his twitter page to vent his frustrations on Troy's possible new gig.
It wouldn't be the first time that Troy has worked with Evanescence; he joined them as their touring guitarist to help finish off their tour back in 2007.
While the addition of Troy to the Evanescence lineup has yet to be confirmed by the band or by Troy, it's safe to say that Evanescence fans will be pleased with all of the recent news about the band.
Earlier this week, Amy Lee took to her Twitter page to let fans know that Evanescence was heading back into the studio to record their next album, due out later this year.
UPDATE (April 10, 2011): Troy McLawhorn has released the following statement on his Facebook fanpage but still hasn't confirmed any future plans
You know...I have been laying low because I didn't want my departure from Seether to be any more dramatic than it has to be but I can't sit by while people come to my site and trash me. There are a lot of people who have been very supportive and I appreciate that so much. As for the haters...I can understand that people are passionate about their bands and the music. I am, too. That's why even when I was barely able to survive financially in this business I never quit because I genuinely love to play music with my friends. My leaving Seether was not about money at all. Ask yourselves this, why would I leave the band after we had just finished making an awesome record? Why? I was as excited as anyone to get out there and support it. I am losing money by leaving the band. You have to know that it was a very personal invasion of trust that led me to make my decision to leave. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a vindictive person and I am just trying to find a place that I can be long term and play music with people that I can trust.
UPDATE (June 12, 2011): Amy Lee of Evanescence has confirmed that Troy has rejoined Evanescence.
