Former Seether Guitarist Rejoins Evanescence
Guitarist, Troy McLawhorn, left Seether last month due to "friction with another member" of the band. Although it was never publicly stated who that other member was, most could guess it was with vocalist/frontman Shaun Morgan. Morgan was vocal about the departure of guitarist Pat Callahan in 2006 saying "relieved a little… actually a lot. He was the guy in the band that was always our naysayer, and he was the negative energy as far as writing."
Over the weekend, it was announced that McLawhorn would now be rejoining the band Evanescence. Morgan dated Evenescence vocalist Amy Lee from 2003 - 2005 and the relationship ended abruptly with Lee writing the song "Call Me When You're Sober" specifically about Morgan, who checked himself into rehab shortly before the song was released. You can guess that Morgan wasn't excited to hear the news and he took to his Twitter account with the following messages:
Seether is getting ready to release their new album 'Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray' on May 17th. Listen to 97 Rock for their new song 'Country Song' or head over to seether.com and you can hear it now!
