Amy Lee and Evanescence working on new album

19 Jun

Following the announcement about ex-Evanescence members beginning a new band The Fallen, lead singer Amy Lee has released the following statement on the official Evanescence website.

“There’s some pretty weird stuff flying around right now and I’d like to clear up some confusion in the press. As our fans already know, Ben Moody left Evanescence in 2003. Evanescence came out with a follow-up to our first album Fallen in 2006.

“It was called The Open Door and it debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts and reached platinum status in just over a month. The Open Door has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.

“We’re currently working on new material that I’m extremely excited about. I believe that to make great music you have to give yourself the freedom to evolve. I don’t see the point in making the same record twice, so I always want to challenge myself to make something better, stronger, and more interesting than before.

“That takes time, but it’s worth the wait for me. Hopefully, it will be for the fans too. Look out for new music next year.”

– Amy Lee

[Editorial note: it seems strange to form a new band called The Fallen, apparently after the name of an album you had created years previously with another band.]
