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”

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

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.”

Amy Lee of Evanescence on Performing and Parenting: ‘Not Easy Being a Mom in Quarantine’

‘We’re still writing, we’re still creating right now, we’re still in the studio’

Amy Lee of Evanescence joined RADIO.COM for an exclusive FANDEMIC Instagram Live, answering questions from around the world and letting us in on her time social distancing. Checking in with RADIO.COM’s Taryn Daly, the GRAMMY-winning singer explains how she and the band are handling these days under lockdown, and what fans can expect as far as more music in the near future.

Best known for 2003’s “Bring Me To Life,” Evanescence recently shared their first new music after nine years out of the spotlight earlier this year with the track “Wasted On You.” Today, August 14, a brand new one is available with singers Taylor Momsen of The Pretty RecklessLzzy Hale of Halestorm, Within Temptation’s Sharon den Adel, violinist Lindsey Stirling and guitarist Troy McLawhorn’s wife, Amy featured on the track which will be on the band’s upcoming studio album, The Bitter Truth.

Also featured on the song are Amy’s sisters Carrie South and Lori Lee Bulloch, as well as friend and co-writer Deena Jakoub from the band Veridia.

On top of joining forces with voter registration organization HeadCount for the Use My Voice campaign, which is encouraging US citizens to check or update their registration status ahead of the upcoming election, Amy says she was also excited to join up with some of her female counterparts on the new project.

“I am so fortunate to have such incredibly beautiful, talented friends,” Amy tells RADIO.COM. “Actually Deena, one of the ladies that is singing on the song from the band Veridia, we’re close friends. I had her come over one day because I was writing and had that song bubbling for a while and was sort of stuck on the chorus. I was just talking through it with her and she totally helped me write that chorus and breakthrough on finishing the song.”
