Born Of Osiris Touring Guitarist Wants His Money

Born of Osiris Lee Evans, former Born Of Osiris touring guitarist is tired of the cold should from former bandmates Born Of Osiris. The band hired Lee back in November for the Unearth tour and never reimbursed him for expenses occurred as a direct result of the tour. I guess they didn't have indiegogo back then for this kind of thing.

Lee states:

"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."
