As I move through life, more and more I feel that the most valuable thing I posses is my ever growing collection of memories. Of the people I’ve loved, the people who have loved me, those beautiful, too-short moments are little captures of what life is in the end. Our love is what remains when it’s all gone. Love is all that lasts. All I want to fight for. Thanks to whoever took this sweet photo 😉
“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)
Thanks to Veronica for sending me some photoshoot pictures from 2003 that I have uploaded to the gallery. Enjoy!
From upi.com: Violinist and dancer Lindsey Stirling said touring with Amy Lee and Evanescence offers an important message about how the best way to empower women is for them to support each other.
“Rather than waiting for everybody to let us into those offices, we’re going to be the ones to lift each other,” Stirling said, adding she is interested in composing music with other women and chose to go on tour with Evanescence, in part, because it is led by a woman.
The artists will perform their own concerts with various live orchestras throughout the country and will also make guest appearances in each other’s sets. A female conductor has also been employed for their upcoming road show.
Stirling and Lee told UPI they have been fans of each other’s work for years and are excited to tour together this summer.
“What I really love about Lindsey the most is I feel like she created her own genre,” Lee, 36, said recently during a Live Nation press day in New York. “I don’t know of another person who has gone out as an instrumentalist, like a violinist, and had this amazing, mainstream presence.”
“I have been a huge Amy fan, huge Evanescence fan. When I heard ‘Bring Me to Life’ for the first time, I was just so struck by the contrast in the music,” said Stirling, 31. “When I started to create my own music, I wanted to have that same contrast in my music, this light versus dark and this edgy versus smooth and soaring.”
Stirling — who is famous for viral videos such as “Crystallize” and “Shadows” — said she doesn’t expect the inspiration she draws from Lee to fade now that they are working together.
“I think that is really a unique story for me to get to tell as I enter the stage every night. Hey, I never would have expected as a teenager that I would one day get to share the stage with my idol. And to be like: ‘Guys, dream it, believe it, see it. Because it could happen.'”
Lee said she is thrilled and a little anxious about performing Evanescence songs such as “My Immortal,” “Lithium” and “Everybody’s Fool” with new orchestral musicians in each city they visit.
“It’s a beautiful tightrope live,” she said. “It’s weird and it’s scary. Anything could happen.”
Lee said she has wanted since she was a teenager to perform with a full, live orchestra, but always thought it was too expensive and difficult to organize until her new management team came along and helped her realize her dream.
“I simultaneously wanted to be in a rock band and wanted to be Danny Elfman and score film and the sound of the band really is sort of a combination of those things,” she said. “It just felt like it would be so fun and fulfilling to finally show a whole other side to the music that I really feel very connected to.” [Source]

From blabbermouth.net: Amy Lee and guitarist Jen Majura were recently interviewed by Belgium’s RTBF. You can now watch the chat below.
Asked how she looks back on Evanescence‘s success so far, Amy said: “I feel proud when I look back. I look back to those early times and see my face, especially if I see an old an interview or a performance when we were on that ‘Fallen’ tour, and I look like a kid. I was a kid; I’d only lived outside my parents’ house for, like, four years. So I see it and I’m, like, ‘Woah! What an incredibly crazy thing to happen.’ And I know that, behind it all, I was juggling a lot, just adjusting emotionally and trying to keep the band together and everything else crazy that goes along with doing this.
“This has been a very retrospective era for us,” she continued. “We made this box set of our history, and now we’ve done ‘Synthesis’, which is a beautiful reflection of our music throughout my career, and then adding some new things in it.”
Evanescence and acclaimed electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling will embark on a co-headlining 2018 summer amphitheater tour across North America. The trek, produced by Live Nation, will kick off July 6 in Kansas City, Missouri at the Starlight Theatre and will make stops in 31 North American cities. The tour will wrap September 8 in Ridgefield, Washington at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater.
Both artists’ shows will be accompanied by a full orchestra, highlighting both acts musicality and their incredible performance abilities that continue to blow fans away. The orchestrated performances will also perfectly accent the astounding amphitheater venues across the U.S. and Canada that the two will be performing in, making for a magical summer evening.
The two artists recently collaborated on the song “Hi-Lo” from the latest Evanescence album, “Synthesis”, which features a virtuosic violin solo by Lindsey Stirling.
“Synthesis” was released in November. The disc sees many of Evanescence’s songs reworked in new ways, incorporating orchestral and electronic elements into the original compositions.
The “Synthesis Live” tour launched in October and like the album, it features a full orchestra and electronics.
I have added a new category to the photo gallery and it features some of the Instagram photos that Evanescence and Amy post. Hope you all enjoy!
