Evanescence has announced that their guitarist Terry Balsamo has left the group after two albums with them. In a statement the band said: “After two albums, countless adventures around the world and on the stage, Terry’s time with Evanescence has come to an end. As difficult as that is, we stand unified knowing it’s the right thing for all of us. We will ALWAYS love you, Terry, and wish you all the happiness, health, and love in the world“.
They then quickly announced: “Now for the exciting part of this announcement: Ladies and gentlemen, meet Jen Majura. After scouring the globe, I found Evanescence’s missing piece in South Germany. She plays like a supervillan, sings like an angel, and laughs like a great friend. We spent a few days together last week in New York sharing eerily familiar life stories, sushi, artistic inspiration, other people’s shoes, and SO many laughs! (Yeah, okay, and maybe there were a couple of stiff drinks mixed in there)“.
They concluded that, “we are all so excited to play together this fall and bring the show to a whole new level. CAN’T WAIT! I know you will show her all the love and respect a strong, talented woman deserves. I couldn’t be happier to welcome our new sister to the band“. Evanescence are due to embark on a mini tour later this year, playing three dates in the US. Watch Evanescence’s “My Heart Is Broken” below.
