New Video Interview with ‘Evanescence’ Guitarist ‘Jen Majura’ Posted Online


logo_evanescence_1EMP Rock Invasion recently conducted an interview with new Evanescence guitarist Jen Majura (Equiblibruim, Knorkator). You can now watch the chat below.

As previously reported, Evanescence recently parted ways with Terry Balsamo, a replacement for Terry was found in Jen Majura.

Evanescence singer Amy Lee commented: “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!

“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) wink emoticon

“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 will re-emerge after a three-year hiatus with select, intimate shows scheduled this fall in Nashville, Dallas and Los Angeles. The influential, Grammy-winning band last performed live in November of 2012.

Evanescence has also been confirmed for Ozzfest Japan, the first major international music festival to ever travel to Japan, which will return to Makuhari Messe Arena (just outside of Tokyo) Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22. The two-day event, which will feature more than 22 performers, will be headlined by two Ozzfest veterans: festival namesake Ozzy Osbourne (who will perform as Ozzy & Friends) and Korn.

Lee, who became a mother for the first time in July 2014, told Rolling Stone last year that she had no plans to hit the studio or the stage with Evanescence, prompting many fans to fear that the band was finished.

In an attempt to assure fans that Evanescence wasn’t over, Lee posted a message on her Facebook page in September, explaining that “Evanescence is a part of me — it just isn’t a complete picture of everything I’m capable of.”

The last Evanescence album, a self-titled effort, came out in 2011.


Upcoming Shows:
Nov. 13 – Nashville, TN – Marathon Music Works
Nov. 15 – Dallas, TX – South Side Ballroom
Nov. 17 – Los Angeles, CA – Wiltern
Nov. 21 – Ozzfest, Japan
