After parting ways with guitarist Jen Majura over the weekend, Evanescence have announced their new touring lineup.
Sharing “some very big news” on social media, the rock band revealed that longtime bassist Tim McCord would switch to guitar and Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies would join them as the new bass guitarist.
“After 16 years in the band as our rock solid bass player, Tim is taking a turn on his original instrument. Spoiler alert- he’s great at it,” Evanescence said in a statement. “And on bass, it is our extreme pleasure to welcome the incredibly talented Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies!”
“We’ve been friends and fans for years, and the time has finally come to join forces. Emma will be pulling double duty as we have some shows with Sick Puppies coming up soon, so get ready for that!” the band added. “We are all very excited to bring this new formation to the stage for the first time in Athens on June 5.”
Majura, who played with the Grammy Award-winning band for seven years, recently said in a statement that her departure was not her own decision, and that she has “no hard feelings against anybody”.
