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]
There was some controversy when Billboard announced the songs, albums and artists that performed the best on the rock charts in 2019 (and throughout the past decade), as some of them didn’t fit squarely into what many people call “rock.” While that’s a debate for another time, many of the most exciting titles that should blast through speakers for the first time in 2020 couldn’t be described any other way.
It’s now been nine years since Evanescence released an album of original material, and fans have waited long enough to hear what perhaps the most successful hard rock band of the past two decades has been working on. [Read Entire Article]
According to Amy Lee the album should be out in 2020 but no definite information has been provided at this time. We will keep you updated as more information because available to us.
“The plan is for us to work on a new album next. We don’t have a timeline going on right now — we’ve been focused on [the Synthesis] tour and this whole crazy massive thing we’ve been doing. But, yeah, that’s totally the plan. You will hear from us.”
Lee says she has a few songs she’s been working on over the years that she’d like to get out there. Though to be fair, Evanescence also released Synthesis in 2017, which had two new songs on it and a bunch of reworkings of their old material.
This is very exciting news and we will keep you updated as more information is released! (update on 8/15/18 – New information about the album has been released on an interview with Amy lee @ loudwire and can be read by visiting here)
