Interview by Dale Kawashima

Amy Lee has been the lead singer & main songwriter of rock band Evanescence since its inception. The band first broke through in 2003 with their multi-platinum debut album Fallen, and they subsequently won Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance. Evanescence has also had the worldwide hits “Bring Me to Life,” “My Immortal” and “Call Me When You’re Sober.”

Since then, the band has released three more albums (The Open DoorEvanescence and Synthesis), but it’s been nine years since they released an album of all new material. This is about to change, because Evanescence is getting ready to release an album of new songs, called The Bitter Truth.

Here’s an excerpt of our interview with Amy Lee of Evanescence, who explains what inspired her to write the band’s new anthem, “Use My Voice.”

We are pleased to do this new Q&A interview with Amy Lee of Evanescence. She discussed the making of the band’s new album The Bitter Truth, and what inspired her to write their excellent new song, “Use My Voice.”

DK: I like the three new songs you’ve released from your upcoming album, The Bitter Truth. Can you talk about the making of this album?

Amy Lee: This has been a different process for us. Even pre-pandemic, I wanted to do this in a different way. Instead of getting all of our songs written and ready to go, and then going in the studio and recording it the traditional way all at once, I had been enjoying the way that we’ve structured our schedule the past couple of years, in that we just keep breaking things up. We would go on tour for about six weeks, and then come off, get a little catch-up time with our family, and then get together and write music. Then we would go back on tour, and we did a type of music and touring that was very different, with a full orchestra.

Part of [this approach] came from learning how to be better at multi-tasking after becoming a mom, because you simply cannot have that much time to do one thing all at once (laughs), and you have to learn to go with the flow of life. So I’ve learned something about myself creatively. I don’t need to finish something all at once. I can set something down when I get frustrated or stuck with it, and do something else for a minute, and come back to it with fresh perspective and work on it more.

WDHA’s “Reconnect With Rockers” featuring Amy Lee from Evanescence

WDHA’s “Reconnect With Rockers” featuring Amy Lee from Evanescence

Episode 28 of “Reconnect” was a really special one for me. I have long admired Amy Lee and Evanescence as the leaders of a sound revolution where no rules, genres or limitation applies. The drum was their own to beat. They marched to no one but themselves.

Speaking with Amy was and honor and such a natural conversation that all the questions I planned on touching upon flew out the window when we began to chat! It literally was like chatting with a close friend.

We covered the bands new musical journey with “The Bitter Truth”, their single “Use My Voice” and why being heard and counted is so important. We also touched upon some of the hardships of being a woman in rock and how Amy feels a certain freedom and liberation as an artist.

Truly one of my favorite chats ever. Thanks Amy….We will continue to bring you the ROCK!

Why it’s taken Evanescence nine years to record follow-up to self-titled album

Why it’s taken Evanescence nine years to record follow-up to self-titled album

Evanescence singer Amy Lee has revealed why it has taken the group so many years to release a follow-up to their 2011 self-titled album.

Speaking on Meltdown for Detroit’s WRIF radio station, Lee admitted there were “lots of reasons” for the delay, adding: “I like to have an open mind about what I can be and what I can do in life.

“I love the music I’ve made with this band, and there are times that I have been more excited about it and passionate about it and in love with and wanting to pour into it than others. Sometimes you have to get away from it. It’s such a full saturation,” she explained.

“The way that our cycles have always gone, really — it started to change now; we found a way to really break it up — that is all you can do for that however many years period of your life with each cycle. Between writing the music and everything that goes along with that, to then going on tour and all the amazing stuff that goes along with that, and releasing the album, and promoting the album, and then at the end of it, I’m always, like, ‘I quit’ — almost every time.”
