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]

Check out our new fan site!

Check out our brand new fan site featuring Evanescence. Some of you may remember back in 2010 we had a network of sites and one of them was a fan site dedicated to Evanescence. We wanted to do that again for a few reasons.

The main reason is that this will help us focus on Amy Lee’s career and also have a place to focus on all the projects Evanescence does in the future. Not much will change with the site. The gallery for both fan sites will remain hosted on Amy Lee Fans for the time being and so will the video vault. Click Here to check out the new site!

Evanescence’s Amy Lee Gets Back to Life

Amy Lee misses Brooklyn. She lived there for 12 years with her husband (and later their son, born in 2015), before they left their apartment for Nashville a year ago.

“The perfect year,” she says with an eye roll over Zoom. Lee had hoped to be closer to her family in Arkansas and friends in Nashville when she moved, only to find herself stuck at home with the rest of the world. “We haven’t gotten [to see people] as much as we would have liked to because of Covid, but now we are here, and we will be set up for a better next year,” she adds optimistically.

That’s not the only plan she’s had to readjust: Earlier this year, her alt-metal band, Evanescence, returned to the studio with producer Nick Raskulinecz, writing and recording songs for what will be their first album of new material since 2011’s Evanescence. While the pandemic slowed them down, the group has forged onward, working remotely at first and later, after getting negative Covid tests, at a Nashville studio. In April, they released the sobering power ballad “Wasted on You” as the lead single from their very much in-progress LP, The Bitter Truth, which is due to be released in early 2021. [READ MORE]
