What’s happening guys and gals? Will Hunt here. I’m excited to be writing a blog for Modern Drummer, as I grew up with this magazine (my subscription was always a stocking stuffer for me when I was a kid), and have always been a fan.
I wanted to share a bit of what’s been happening with me as of late. 2010 found me recording We All Bleed with Crossfade and Order of the Black with my buds in Black Label Society. I also got the opportunity to tour with BLS for a bit before getting back in the studio with Evanescence in early 2011. Getting to play with your favorite guitar player does not suck!
2011 and 2013 were spent doing the Evanescence album and a very extensive world tour, which was awesome. Some highlights from those years include scoring the first number-one album of my career, playing in Norway at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, playing in crazy cool places like Beirut, Lebanon, selling out Wembley Arena in London, and spending a week in Morocco. (My wife was able to come on this excursion, which was really cool.)
I get asked a lot about the future of Evanescence, and here’s what I can tell you. I’d like to think we will get back together at some point and do another album and tour. I miss those guys and gal; they’re my friends, and we make great music together. Right now, I’m very much enjoying my time in Device. We are a band in the truest sense, and we will be doing another album and tour at some point—it’s not just a one-off. Will there be an Evanescence album and/or tour before that happens? I don’t know. I’m just taking it one day at a time.
