Evanescence Are Back from the Dead!

Yes it has indeed five long years since we last heard from Evanescence but the band is back and their new self-titled release due out October 11th takes a whole new approach. Amy Lee herself was just discussing last year about wanting to make an electronic/dance based album but she has put that behind her for good. She says that this album will be the band's heaviest to date and that the fans will get more in store once they hit the road this fall. Amy says "It's just going to be straight-up rock. Big energy. This album is just a fast-paced rock ride . . . We've got three albums now to pull from so, of course, we want to play the new ones but, of course, we're going to play the old ones too. It's going to be a lot."

The album was recorded at the Blackbird Studios in Nashville with produer Nick Raskulinecz who's worked with such acts as Rush, Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver, Death Angel and Trivium. A totla of 16-tracks were recorded for the album and all will appear on a deluxe edition of the album. 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. The band's new single and debut song has been long overdue and is 'What You Want" so is this what you want out of the new or shall we say perhaps old Evanescence? You be the judge.
