EVANESCENCE's LEE, SEETHER's MORGAN Split Up

Shaun Morgan, the frontman for heavy rock band SEETHER, has told the Arkansas Times that he would love to do a duet on stage with EVANESCENCE's Amy Lee again in Little Rock — and SEETHER plays Little Rock at the Clear Channel Metroplex on Jan. 29 — but says it's unlikely to happen. The pair, who dated for a couple of years, have split up, and it was apparently amicable. But, where Lee stepped out from back of the stage to join Morgan for SEETHER's hit "Broken" at Riverfest last May, it's not going to happen this time, Morgan told the Arkansas Times by phone on Thursday (Jan. 12).

Lee is living in Los Angeles. Morgan and SEETHER spent a month at home in South Africa before returning to L.A. to begin filming a video for their next single, "Gift", due out Jan. 24.

As reported yesterday, SEETHER will join METALLICA in March at South Africa's biggest international music festival ever. The Coca-Cola Colab Massive Mix festival will take place on March 18 in the city of Centurion, March 21 in Durban and March 25 in Cape Town.

In a recent interview with Launch Radio Networks, Morgan said that South Africa has a vibrant rock scene. "There's a big scene, it's just not very well supported by labels, you know," he said. "The national radio station does its job of promoting bands at night, when the rock show comes on. But there's a lot of great bands out there that we're fans of, that when we were coming up, they were at about the same level as we were. We just got signed."
