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.

According to an interview with 93.3 WMMR Rocks!, frontwoman Amy Lee says that her and the rest of the band are all on board to go back to their roots.

“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]
