Amy Lee says new Evanescence music has ‘A lot of Guitars’

Evanescence singer Amy Lee spoke to SiriusXM‘s “Debatable” on the Volume channel about the band’s upcoming album, “The Bitter Truth” (BMG). The band’s first collection of new original music in nine years, “The Bitter Truth” is being made available incrementally throughout 2020.

“We’re still writing, but we’re also recording,” she said (see video below). “We got four songs down, and then we really had to just be apart. And that was kind of good, but kind of hard — we just worked remotely for a while. We got the American band members back together. After getting COVID tests and tour buses brought guys from both coasts, we all holed up in Nick Raskulinecz, our producer, his private studio, so we were quarantining together for a little over a month.

Evanescence’s Amy Lee on the Band’s New Album, “The Bitter Truth”

The singer is ready for the band’s next era and to be seen as more than just a “cute frontwoman.”

In the early aughts—when Juicy Couture sweatsuits dominated and The O.C.’s Seth Cohen was TV’s no.1 man—it was nearly impossible to not hear Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life” piercing the airwaves. The throaty vocals and crushing guitar riffs help raise the single to number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and secure its certified platinum status. So it’s almost hard to believe that nearly two decades ago that level of success seemed unattainable for the band.

“From every angle starting out, we were the indie long shot,” bandleader Amy Lee recalls to Marie Claire from her home in Nashville. “Too many things about us didn’t quite fit the mainstream for it to be safe to spin [on the radio].”

Evanescence’s Amy Lee Explains Why She Broke Silence on Politics

Evanescence’s Amy Lee Explains Why She Broke Silence on Politics

She decided to use her voice.

There are many differing opinions on how musicians should use their platform when it comes to discussing social issues and other problems in the world. Evanescence‘s Amy Lee has always tried to stay neutral, but 2020 has taken advantage.

“I definitely still don’t want to divide people. Our job as artists — to me — is to bring people together. Also it’s to provoke thought,” Lee told Loudwire Nights. “You think about a concert, you think about bringing all those people into a room and making them look into their core and find similarities between each other, in a way. Because at the core of everything, we’re not red, we’re not blue, we’re not anything. We’re just people. And I want that.”

Evanescence and Rock’s Top Women Champion Empowerment with new Single “Use My Voice”

Taylor Momsen, Lzzy Hale, Lindsey Stirling, Sharon den Adel and others join Evanescence on new song from forthcoming album The Bitter Truth

Evanescence and front woman Amy Lee are back with their new single and unique musical event, “Use My Voice,” out today. Listen here.

Featuring a line-up of bad-ass women who lent their voices to the anthemic chorus in the song, “Use My Voice” was written to celebrate the power of speaking out in order to promote a more just world.

Amy Lee said: “This is an era of awakening, and full of powerful beauty. I hope to inspire others to seek truth, find their own voices and use them as I step up to use mine. Don’t let anybody speak for you. Only you can do that.”

Amy’s top-notch crew of collaborators on “Use My Voice” are:

  • Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless
  • Lzzy Hale of Halestorm
  • Violinist Lindsey Stirling
  • Deena Jakoub of Veridia (long-time friend of Amy’s and co-writer of the song)
  • Sharon den Adel of Within Temptation 
  • Amy’s sisters: Carrie South and Lori Lee Bulloch
  • Amy McLawhorn, wife of Evanescence guitarist Troy McLawhorn

Listen to “Use My Voice,” out today via BMG, here.

“Use My Voice” follows “Wasted on You” and “The Game is Over”as the third track to be released early from The Bitter Truth, Evanescence‘s forthcoming new album, the first containing all new material in nearly a decade. The Elle, Rolling Stone, and New York Times-lauded, self-shot while-in-quarantine video for “Wasted on You” was recently nominated for “Best Rock” at the coming MTV Video Music Awards, and The Bitter Truth promises fans more of the heavy, vocal-driven, and expertly-arranged rock for which Evanescence is known.

Lyrics

Cover my eyes and close my eyes
Just long enough to stop the noise
Go and take everything and throw it away
But I will use my voice

Drown every truth in an ocean of lies
Label me a bitch because I dare to draw my own line
Burn every bridge and build a wall in my way
But I will use my voice

Whether you like it or not, you’re gonna take what I got
If we can’t talk about it, we just keep drowning in it
Give me credit or not
I give and I give a lot
But don’t you speak for me

No, don’t you speak for me

Nevermind me, I’m a waste of your time
Never gonna fit in the box that you need
And I can read between the lines, yeah
Gather your friends and wave your gun in my face
But I will use my voice

Whether you like it or not, you’re gonna take what I got
If we can’t talk about it, we just keep drowning in it
Give me credit or not
I give and I give a lot
But don’t you speak for me

But don’t you speak for me

Whether you like it or not [x4]

One day soon it’s gonna fall back on you
No more lies, we’re gonna break right through
Like it or not

If we can’t talk about it, we just keep drowning in it
Give me credit or not
I give and I give a lot
But don’t you speak for me

No, don’t you speak for me

Don’t you speak for me!
