“Ben is not on the current dates,” Steve Karas, who is a spokesman for Wind-up Records and one of Evanescence’s producers, told the Associated Press on Tuesday.

There is no word on when – or if – he would rejoin the group after leaving it in Berlin last month, Karas said. Moody was spotted by staff at Juanita’s, a Little Rock bar, Monday night.

Evanescence’s CD Fallen featuring the No. 1 song “Bring Me to Life” from the movie “Daredevil” has sold more than 6 million copies worldwide since its March debut, according to Wind-up Records.

The rock group is listed to perform Nov. 16 at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles, where they are nominated for best pop/rock album. It was not immediately known if Moody would make that appearance.

Evanescence has been on tour since August and is scheduled to play dates in Glasgow, Scotland, and London this week with another Wind-up act, Finger Eleven.

The band also is set to play Nov. 19 in Mexico City before returning to the United States for a set of concerts with Seether and Finger Eleven starting Nov. 21 in Tucson, Ariz.

Moody’s departure comes after the band was named Best International New Artist at the MTV Latin Awards in Miami Beach, Fla. on Oct. 23. The group also is up for three MTV Europe Awards – best group, best new act and best song – to be awarded in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Thursday.

Moody and lead singer Amy Lee started the band out of Little Rock after meeting at an Arkansas summer camp when they were in school. The duo started writing songs together soon afterward and played locally before they became popular worldwide.
