Tasha-Ray Evin of Lillix checked in with fans on the pop rock band’s official web site on Wednesday (March 2), talking about being part of a new docu-reality show. Tasha writes:
Hey guys, so I wanted to send you a note on something…
I auditioned for a Docu-reality show called “Rockstar Academy” a few months back and received a call back that I got the show! The show follows 12 students attending Rockstar Academy school on their journey toward making it in the music business. Now, I just finished the last week of filming! BUT, the final episode will be shot in Hollywood, where I will be performing and judged and the winner of the show receives a record deal! The trailer is on it’s way and you will get to watch it all on KVOS starting March 5 @ 7pm.
Here are some behind the scenes pictures (link has since gone 404)

Lacey-Lee Evin of Lillix updated fans on the Canadian pop rock group’s blog at MySpace (@lillix) on Monday (April 19), discussing details on a follow-up to their 2006 album ‘Inside the Hollow’ and the music video for its first single ‘Nowhere to Run’. Lacey writes:
Tasha, Eric and I (Lacey) have been in the studio since Fall 2009 recording our third full length album with our producer “Futcher”. Studio time has been difficult to get due to the volume of bands recording (at our secret location) which has delayed the album a couple months. We are also quite particular with every instrument so I suppose the delay is our fault too, haha… Trust me though, it is going to be our best album yet and well worth the wait. Currently we have about 60% complete and our due-date is a Summer 2010 release.
Tasha and Lacey Evin of Lillix checked in with fans on the Canadian pop rock group’s MySpace Video channel, letting them know about their new web site, lillixonline.com. The siblings also have a new single out called ‘Dance Alone’.
“(The web site has) the latest news and you can listen to the single ‘Dance Alone’ in the music section,” Lacey said. “We also have videos from recent shows that are up. We’re doing weekly updates and there’s also another section called ask Lillix where you can submit your question and we’ll answer it on video form. We’ll be doing that weekly so check that out.”

The band’s current lineup features Lacey-Lee Evin on vocals and keyboards, Tasha-Ray Evin on vocals and bass guitar, Scott Thompson on guitar and vocals, and Hoodicoff on drums. “We’ve had this lineup for a few months now and things are going really well,” Hoodicoff writes. “We are currently writing and demoing new songs for a new album to be released sometime in 2008.

“Hello Friends of Lillix. We hope everyone had a fantastic new years and here’s to the best in 07′. Im sure all of you have been wondering what’s going on with Lillix?
“It’s time to let you all know that we have decided to take a break. It has been 9 years. We’ve accomplished a lot, almost everything we intended to. It has been a lot of fun, a lot of hard work, but also a lot of frustration. We’d like to thank all of you who have been so supportive through the years. We mean this from the bottom of our hearts.
“Unfortunately, this means that ‘Inside the Hollow’ will not be available in any other country other than Canada and Japan. Sorry to those of you awaiting the release. It’s time for a change, and in the meantime we will be pursuing other musical endeavours. We love you all and hope to see you again in this new chapter of our lives.”
