Evanescence Wiki
Evanescence Wiki


A fan forum started by Amy Lee after EvBoard transitioned to paid-only access due to cost issues and lack of band interest. Amy, Tim McCord, Rocky Gray and Terry Balsamo posted to the forum while it was still in operation. The forum closed in July 2012.[1]

From 2009 to 2011, Amy used the forum to update the fans about Evanescence's third album.[2][3][4]


In August 2010, Sam Smith claimed that lawyers working for Evanescence singer Amy Lee forced him to sign a non-disclosure agreement that prevented him from reporting what he alleged to be drug offenders and pedophiles on the EvThreads forum to the authorities.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11] In November 2011, John Hemming created a motion in Parliament in support of Smith's claims that received the support of Mike Hancock and Peter Bottomley.[12] In July 2012, Hemmings presented a petition to Parliament in support of Smith's claims.[13] Smith's claims resulted in Anonymous targeting Amy Lee and the closure of EvThread.com.[5][6]
