The band toured for most of the year in support of the album, and filmed their first live DVD, Cirque Des Damnés, at the Avalon Theatre. In 2012 Moody teamed up with former Papa Roach drummer Dave Buckner and former Rockstar Supernova frontman Lukas Rossi to form a new project called The Halo Method.
Before their debut show on the Shiprocked cruise in November 2012, former In This Moment bassist and multi-talented studio engineer Josh Newell became their permanent bassist.
In December 2008, he released the Mutiny Bootleg E. and announced that his solo album would be released on March 3, 2009.
This release would be delayed, however, as was hinted at in February 2009, when Moody's official website displayed the release as "available 2009" instead of the March 3 release date.
Shortly after the release of All for This, it was announced that Moody had created and is also currently a member of a new rock band called We Are the Fallen.
The members of the band include American Idol 7 finalist Carly Smithson as the lead singer, former Evanescence members Rocky Gray and John Le Compt, and Moody's friend Marty O'Brien.
We Are the Fallen made their first public appearance together for a press conference at SIR Studios in Los Angeles, CA, on June 22, 2009.
Their debut album, Tear The World Down was released in May 2010 to generally positive reviews.
Moody: I have a lot more peace about it, even more than the day I left. I still feel it was the right decision because Evanescence has carried on, and they've had great success since me. If I stayed, I think Amy and I would have destroyed it because we just weren't heading in the same direction; we were pulling it in two different directions. MTV: It seems like you exited for the greater good and still have a lot of love and respect for Evanescence as people. There was animosity at the time because I was so upset that I had built something for so long and we couldn't make it work. At the same time, I was denying my responsibility for that, you know?
Now I can go back and go, "It was what it was." As much as they can't blame me for who I am as a person, I can't blame [Amy], or the rest of them for who they are.
