Will Hunt

Hunt was the touring drummer for Tommy Lee's "Never a Dull Moment" tour, as well as member of the band Skrape until 2004, at which point he joined the band Dark New Day full-time. He is currently the live drummer for Evanescence who filled Rocky Gray's place on May 17th, 2007.

Touring Drums for Evanescence

Amy Lee stated on EvThreads.com that Will and Dark New Day band mate Troy McLawhorn are not leaving Dark New Day and that Evanescence are "just borrowing Will and Troy for a while" so it is unclear at this point how long they will be touring with the band and if they will take part in any future studio recordings. Other Dark New Day guitarist, Clint Lowery (who will also be touring with Korn as their backup guitarist), stated that Troy and Will are only going to be temporarily touring with Evanescence until September 2007 [1]. Though, September has passed and Will is still a member of Evanescence, while he is referred as a member by Evanescence's official bio [2].
