Evanescence have confirmed new music for 2019. The band additionally say that their forthcoming release will be a follow-up to 2011’s self-titled record.
“We all really wanna do it,” Lee says. “And it’s not one of those things where it’s, like, ‘Someday, maybe we’ll do something again.’ Everybody’s on board, and we’re getting together to do a few shows next year in [the self-titled] style — partially because I think it’ll be good for us to get back to that root, just get back to playing Evanescence-style rock and roll and just jive together again.”
Lee says that the band has no large touring plans next year. Other than a few shows, Lee wants to be able to have the time to flush out new ideas.
Lee continues to explain how the majority of the time spent with her band is composed of remembering and practicing their already-recorded discography for large tours. However, she says that they are always constantly inspired by one another. Lee says that within the next year, she is excited to carry out those inspirations with new music. [Source]
Nashville-based pop/rock/electronic band Veridia have released a candid new performance clip for “I’ll Never Be Ready” off their latest album The Beast You Feed. The track features Amy Lee on piano and backing vocals, and its accompanying video captures the Evanescence front woman playing the song with Veridia for the first time at the band’s album release party at Nashville’s Analog.
Veridia frontwoman Deena Jakoub wrote “I’ll Never Be Ready” as her dad was dying from renal disease, and when she reached out to Lee to guest on the song, it resonated strongly with the Evanescence bandleader, who had recently lost her brother. Both singers talk about their experiences with loss and how the song and the collaboration helped them to heal in the video.
“It felt like we were divinely brought together to walk through and perform through those deep emotions,” Jakoub told Alternative Press. “She played the song of my soul that I could not find the words to sing.”
“There are things in this world that are cruel and unfair, and there are also things in this world that are impossibly beautiful,” Lee added. “Reaching out and finding someone else in the darkness lights up the one thing that lives forever. Love. And to quote the words that hold my heart, ‘I’ll never forget how much I was loved.'” [Source]

Evanescence took a risk with their 2017 album Synthesis by reconstructing its material into elegant orchestrations that enhanced aspects of its music that are often ignored. Then it upped the stakes by bringing the production on the road with a rotating cast of symphony members at each stop. The band delivered a riveting performance during Friday Night’s (Aug. 10) date at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, N.J., where the backing ensemble impressively brought to life the classical elements that infuse Evanescence’s music. Following the captivating set was a smart pairing with electric violinist Lindsey Stirling, a co-headliner who energetically balanced the evening.
The two acts utilized the symphony in contrasting ways. Evanescence could have been tempted to pump up the bombast at every turn since its catalog possesses a fair share of melodrama. But the full force of the orchestra was only unleashed when building up to the zenith of highlights including “Bring Me to Life” and “My Heart Is Broken,” increasing its impact.
The same could be said for singer Amy Lee, who alternated between sitting behind a piano and swaying before a mic stand as she delved into every nuance of her vocals. It would have been appropriate to go total diva, but her emotional connection to the material propelled her voice rather than all the wind in her lungs. It especially paid off when she serenaded the crowd with the practically a cappella “My Immortal.” Singing to a galaxy of cell phone lights, Lee won a much deserved standing ovation for her stirring rendition of the ballad.

I have added some new photos to the gallery from the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre in Brisbane, Australia on 02/10/2018. Hope you enjoy!
A single spotlight shines, filled with fog as it illuminates Amy Lee, talented lead singer of the alternative rock band Evanescence. It’s a cold spring night in London and the Royal Festival Hall crowd is screaming along to every lyric of the five-piece’s new album, Synthesis. The accompanying orchestra, conducted by Susie Seiter, adds a beautiful depth to each piece. Everyone in the audience, from superfans to newcomers, is swept away by the performers’ immense stage presence.
Lee is a powerful vocalist and equally formidable on the piano, and when joined by her contingents, she truly comes alive. Passion is written across her face; the intense emotion that supplements each string of words says as much as the lyrics themselves do. Even with incredible drummer Will Hunt tossing his sticks and crafting outrageous fills, all eyes are on Lee. And whenever the singing isn’t completely understandable, the frontwoman makes up for it with her range: her highest notes are perhaps even more sustained than her natural lower register.
Under deep red and violet lighting, the crowd excitedly joins Evanescence in a lively performance of Bring Me to Life, which starts off soft but ends in a rousing chorus. In Lithium, Lee proves she sings just as well without the synthesised effects that have become one of the band’s hallmarks; Lost in Paradise, showcases the majesty of the orchestra.
Before performing My Immortal, Lee explains that their fans have given a new meaning to the piece. Each member works in harmonious unity throughout the piece, shining as more than a sum of their parts.
The concert is best represented by what the singer says towards the finale of the show, when she proclaims that people who enjoy songs “this emotional … feel a lot but don’t say as much [we] feel. The only way through is what we have together.” As much as the night is about music, it is also about coming together and feeling emotions – whether those be pain, pensive contemplation, or rage – as one.
