Within 2 weeks from the dismissal of John LeCompt and Rocky Gray, Evanescence has hired its two new members.
Not waiting for some drama, Evanescence quickly adds two new members for their summer tour. Drummer Will Hunt and guitarist Troy McLawhorn, both plucked from alt-metal band Dark New Day have replaced John LeCompt and Rocky Gray.
"I am a big fan of Dark New Day and can't wait for the fans to see what the guys bring to our live show," Lee said in a statement.
The new line up will show itself on May 19 gig in Columbus, OH and the rest of the dates following the support of the band's latest album "The Open Door". The band will also headline Family Values Tour with Korn after completing European leg this July.
Gray and LeCompt meanwhile, have their own career going on. They will concentrate on their side band Machina, which LeCompt wrote in his blog, would be doing some major-label showcases in New York this month.
