Evanescence's New Album Artwork Released


The cover artwork for EVANESCENCE's forthcoming third, self-titled album can be seen below. The CD will be released on October 11 via Wind-Up Records.

"Evanescence" was recorded at Nashville's Blackbird Studio with producer Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, FOO FIGHTERS, VELVET REVOLVER, DEATH ANGEL, TRIVIUM).

EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee began recording an album last year with producer Steve Lillywhite (DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, U2) that leaned heavily in the direction of electronic and dance music, but her label reportedly rejected that project and made her start from scratch on a more traditional EVANESCENCE offering.

"I feel like, not that I'm trying to do what's important for the music industry, I'm doing what I want — we're doing what we love," she told MTV News. "But, at the same time, it's so refreshing for us to play music that we want to hear. It rocks, and not that there's nothing going on that does, but less and less; that's definitely not what's dominating the airwaves. And it would be so amazing and it's totally our dream to have that happen for us; not even just for us, but, like, we want to hear rock music again.


"I think that, as a band, we're really strong," she continued. "Everybody's just playing at the top of their game right now, they're just putting it all in ... and it was, like, that mentality the whole time we were working. Like, whatever it takes to make the most amazing thing possible."

EVANESCENCE will kick off a 15-city North American run on October 10 in Oakland, California.
