Evanescence Co-Founder Diagnosed With Bipolar Disorder, Planning Solo Album
EVANESCENCE co-founder Ben Moody recently spoke to RollingStone.com about his upcoming solo album, tentatively due this fall.
"It's a rock record, but it's a lot more organic than stuff I've done in the past," says Moody. "When it's heavy, it's straight-ahead heavy."
Moody is producing the album, with Jay Baumgarder (PAPA ROACH) co-producing a handful of tracks, and he's recruited GODHEAD's Jason Miller to play guitar and sing lead vocals on a few tracks. Drummer Lance Garvin (LIVING SACRIFICE), bassist Marty O'Brien (TOMMY LEE, METHODS OF MAYHEM) and guitarist Michael "Fish" Herring (PRINCE, CHRISTINA AGUILERA) round out the lineup.
Several of the fifteen songs Moody has demoed for his solo effort are about the turmoil he has gone through the past few years, "having to come to grips with my own anger and self-hatred and things that I tried to pin on EVANESCENCE." Moody, who was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, confesses, "It goes much deeper than anything that came from being in a band."
