Most Anticipated New Albums of 2021

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]

Evanescence’s 2021 plans

As Evanescence gear up to unveil their long-awaited new album The Bitter Truth this year, Amy Lee tells Kerrang! that she’s doing everything she can to make the record as a whole an absolute must-have for fans.

Right now I’m just wanting to make the package and all the extras, everything the fans could ever want and more while there’s still time to add things to it,” she reveals cryptically. When asked about the details, Amy adds, ​The only reason I’m not being more specific is because I don’t want to fail and be like, ​Oh, sorry, I tried to be that awesome thing I said, but I didn’t have enough content.’ I’m just trying to make something almost like an audio making of moment.

There’s so much that goes into this whole process. I’ve got so many little pieces of audio. There’s tons of stuff that didn’t get used. It started with the voice notes because that’s how I write vocals a lot nowadays. I just have hundreds of those. If you were just to listen to those all in a row, I feel like that would be very boring after a while. I have a lot that are like eight seconds. So it’s like, ​Oh, cool, that’s the melody of Wasted On You.’ There’s just a bunch of extra stuff. And I’m not positive what the limit of that is yet. I haven’t decided but I’m just collecting as much stuff as I can. So let’s see what can happen here!” [READ MORE]

Amy Lee Talks ‘The Bitter Truth’ Album

During a recent chat with Kerrang!EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee was asked if the band’s latest single “Yeah Right” was a good indication of the kind of “curveballs” fans can expect from the band’s upcoming album “The Bitter Truth”. She responded: “I think there’s definitely more where that came from…

“When making a complete album, especially after all this time, I always want to just put out a statement, like, ‘This is where we’re at, this is who we are’ — it has to be a whole spectrum of emotions and reflections that make up who you are, who the band is,” she continued. “So far, I feel like each song that we put out is a very different colour of the spectrum and there are more colors yet to come, for sure.”

Regarding the most recent single, Amy said: “‘Yeah Right’ has been a long time coming; I started that song a decade ago. It was mostly there, it had been at the top of the pile for a really, really long time. We’ve always had a cool pile of extra scraps and pieces of unfinished songs. That’s just one that kept on not plugging in, and then something happened this year when we got together and started playing and pulling songs together in pre-production — I was, like, ‘I finally know how we can make it work!’ It’s one of those songs that we’re going to have to figure out how to do live because I don’t want to be glued to the Moog the whole time. It might be a good time to whip out the keytar.” [READ MORE]
