Evanescence face an uncertain future following the shock walkout of their guitarist.

It has emerged that founder member Ben Moody walked out of the band’s world tour on October 24 in Berlin. He immediately flew home and did not give a reason for his departure, according to MTV.

Furious singer Amy Lee told Rocksound magazine: “You don’t do that to your band. You wouldn’t do that to your friends or your family. You don’t do that to anyone.”

The band are ploughing on with their European tour, and are expected to honour their US dates, which begin later this month. Second guitarist John LeCompt is filling in Moody’s parts.

Lee and Moody formed Evanescence together in the late ‘90s. This year they scored a worldwide smash with breakthrough single ‘Bring Me To Life’.
