Goth-metal hitmakers Evanescence will tour with Korn later this summer, but they’ll apparently be doing so with an altered line-up, as guitarist Jen Majura has departed from the ranks.
The band posted the following statement to their Facebook:
“It has been a very special chapter in the band with our dear friend Jen Majura, but we have decided it’s time to go our separate ways. We will always love her and support her, and can’t wait to see what she does next! We are so grateful for the good times and great music we made all around the world together. We are hard at work rehearsing for our upcoming tour and will have some exciting news about the new lineup coming in the next few days, so stay tuned.”
Majura, meanwhile, claims that while there’s no beef, the decision for her to leave the band was one-sided:
“I feel the need to address that none of this was my decision! I have no hard feelings against anybody and I wish Evanescence all the best. I am allowed to carry beautiful memories of these past years, I am grateful.”
More on this as it almost certainly will unfold. Meanwhile, get tickets to see Evanescence sans-Majura at one of the following dates:
