Evanescence’s return has been a long time in the making. Though they’ve released a new live album, box set, and a compilation record, it’s been nearly 10 years since they put out their last record of new material, 2011’s self-titled. Last year, they announced their long-awaited follow-up, The Bitter Truth. They’ve been teasing the record with various single releases throughout 2020. Now that the wait is almost over. Evanescence’s highly anticipated fifth album arrives in March. The singles have been stellar so far, and we can’t wait to hear the rest of the album finally. [READ MORE]

Rock Sound Rock Sound chat via Zoom with Evanescence vocalist Amy Lee as the band release their new single ‘Wasted On You’. Amy tells us how that song came together and what it was like filming the music video on iPhones while the band stayed in quarantine. Also, we get some early details on their upcoming new album ‘The Bitter Truth’ which is due for release later in 2020. Plus, Amy tells us what she learned from the band’s incredible ‘Synthesis’ project which saw them rework classic songs like ‘My Immortal’ and ‘Bring Me To Life’ with new instrumentation and perform live with a full orchestra.
Amy Lee has spoken to “Loudwire Nights” about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the long-awaited follow-up to the band’s 2011 self-titled effort.
“This has been something where we are all in there together for most of the time so far,” she said (hear audio below).
“We’re in there with [producer] Nick Raskulinecz right now, who we’ve worked with before and loved working with before. He produced our self-titled album, which is really our favorite album. He also mixed [EVANESCENCE’s recent cover of the FLEETWOOD MAC song] ‘The Chain’.
“We’ve been in there kind of working as a team,” she reiterated. “The songs came from all different places. They’re not all in the same vein.
“We’re working on four songs right now. Originally, we were gonna go in there and just do two. I just wanna kind of do a few songs at a time, keep writing, go in and do a few more, release ’em one by one. But once we opened the can of worms, it kept growing. ‘Oh, we can’t do this one and not do this one. We have to do four.’ So, it’s four. So we’re working double hard to get it all done with the time that we have. But it’s going really great.” [Full Article]

I’m proud to lend my voice to this reimagining of “The Chain” for Gears 5. I was drawn to the story of Kait overcoming fear and standing up to fight. Her story of breaking out with her own voice is most definitely one I relate to! https://t.co/LPtDuNu0A2
