Evanescence Bassist Tim McCord Switches To Guitar, Band Recruit Emma Anzai (Sick Puppies) As New Bassist

Evanescence bassist Tim McCord will now be taking on guitar duties for the band following the departure of Jen Majura. Furthermore, the group have also welcomed Emma Anzai (Sick Puppies) to the band as their new bassist.

Evanescence issued the following statement:

“Ladies and gentlemen, we have some very big news to share.

Introducing our new guitarist…

TIM MCCORD!!

After 16 years in the band as our rock solid bass player, Tim is taking a turn on his original instrument. Spoiler alert- he’s great at it.

And on bass, it is our extreme pleasure to welcome the incredibly talented Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies! We’ve been friends and fans for years, and the time has finally come to join forces.

Emma will be pulling double duty as we have some shows with Sick Puppies coming up soon, so get ready for that! We are all very excited to bring this new formation to the stage for the first time in Athens on June 5. See you soon!”

Singer Amy Lee also commented:

“Making positive change in your life (and band) can be really hard. Some choices we make, some are made for us. But who we are in the end is how we handle whatever comes our way. Today is a big day in my band. Taking another step forward with my brothers who have been beside me for 15+ years, and welcoming in a beautiful friend we are so excited to share the stage with…. I’m happy. You never know whats around the corner, but when something is right you know it’s right. And this feels so right. Welcome Emma! Love all you guys.”
