Evanescence Drop New Video For Imperfection
Woah! A new Evanescence video! You psyched? Shot on location in Los Angeles last month with director PR Brown, the song is the first single off the band’s fourth album to date, Synthesis, which is due to be released on November 10. The album is a reworking of some of the band’s best-loved songs and a couple of new ones recorded with a full orchestra and electronics combined with the band and Amy Lee’s virtuoso piano and voice.
AMY LEE describes the concept of the video for “Imperfection,” “This collaboration with P.R. Brown has just gotten better and more crucial as we’ve gone along. It started out with the ‘SYNTHESIS’ artwork, I told him how I saw the music, as this co-existence of synthetic and organic, the contrast and the blend of two very different elements. He interpreted that visually into mixing media, hand painting on photographs, putting every shot into its own unique universe. The idea for the ‘Imperfection’ video was about bringing that art to life, and capturing the emotion of the lyrics. Our amazing young actress, Rogue Parker, plays the role of me as a girl, my inner-self. The video is meant to give visual to feeling, an internal picture of processing loss, and life, speaking from an adult’s perspective to my past self.”
