Evanescence part ways with guitarist and welcome new member

Evanescence have parted ways with lead guitarist Terry Balsamo and welcome brand-new member, Jen Majura.

“After 2 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! 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.” said Amy Lee in a statement.

“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). 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. P.S. This is the time to be shouting out setlist requests, we’re working on it now. Anything is possible! So bring it!!!” she continued.

Ending their three-year hiatus, the band have recently announced three shows across the pond this November.

You can catch them at the following dates.


13 Nashville – Marathon Music Works
15 Dallas – South Side Ballroom
17 Los Angeles – Wiltern
