Former Born of Osiris touring guitarist Lee Evans, who had two separate stints with the band during the past five years, has taken to Facebook to complain about nearly $3000 the band allegedly still owes him. Here's what he had to say:

There's a part of my BOO story I feel I must disclose, a cautionary tale for anyone who has business involvement with the band.

In 2012, when they had asked me to rejoin the group, they hadn't played a show in 6 months, and were broke. I fronted money for band expenses, and was told I'd be paid back at the end of our tour with Unearth (November 2012). Here is a list of what I have not been reimbursed for.

$376.71 for a ComEd bill
$339.63 for Rocktron power amps for Lee McKinney and myself
$817.59 for hotels
$746.83 Fractal repair for Lee McKinney's Axe FX Ultra and a replacement MFC-101
$136.20 for UPS shipping my and Lee McKinney's guitars to Ernie Ball for tuneups
$425.65 for assorted Guitar Center receipts* (drum hardware for Cameron, rackmount case, flight case, David's wireless, bass strings, a Sennheiser mic for Ronnie)

*some of this was paid by band cash, and I fronted the rest, totaling to $425.65.

This was supposed to be repaid to me Nov 31, but the band thought meager personal payouts were more important. Since then, this outstanding debt has spread to other areas of my life. 8 whole months have passed and I'm still waiting.
