In case any of you have missed it (and in case anyone still reads this community), Ben has finally written at length about his leaving Evanescence and what his goals have been since. Sadly, it was after reading a bunch of YouTube comments about what an awful person he is, but it's nice to finally have his story out there, even if there's not much new information in it.
In case any of you haven't heard yet, Ben Moody, John Lecompt and Rocky Gray have formed a new band with Carly Smithson as the lead singer. They're known as the Fallen, and will make their official debut on Monday with a press conference and by offering their first song, "Bury Me Alive," for download on their website, wearethefallen.com.
Apparently the hordes are already having a shitfit, claiming this is just an Evanescence tribute band, or some such, forgetting that would mean they're simply paying tribute to themselves.
Though the street date for Ben's album is March 3, 2009, we've been able to get a taste of what's coming in the Mutiny Bootleg EP. It's a four track sample of Ben's songs, with one track, a rerecording of "Everything Burns" with Hana Pestle, that will only be available here.
For me the real standout track is "The Way We Are." The honesty and vulnerability in Ben's lyrics along with his vocal delivery are somehow both heartbreaking and healing.
I came across a picture today on Google.. that was Ben with his headcast i guess it's for some movie he's gonna be in I haven't heard anything about it... is Ben doing a solo album or has he taken a break f/ writing music... I wish he's get into another band... I love to hear his work
got an idea.. but you gotta join my group to hear me out... the sound asleep myspace group oowah even if you're like i was (and still kinda am) and hate myspace just make a bullshit account for fun shit like this and da a friend finder search for the display name " dead man dreaming " and add me as a friend. then i'll send the invite. after that you're all free to invite whoever, but you gotta join to read the thought process behind the whole thing. i promise...it's painless .....and we may even have special hats..or a handshake or something
