Amy Lee Says Evanescence Will Release New Music “Hopefully Next Year”
While this year is relatively active on the tour front for Evanescence, fans have been wondering when new music from the band could potentially arrive.
Luckily some promising news broke over the weekend, with vocalist Amy Lee revealing that, as well as touring festivals and headline shows, they’re also going to be putting a lot of focus on the follow-up to 2017’s Synthesis – with new music coming “hopefully next year.”
“This is sort of a creation year for us,” the singer tells SiriusXM’s Grant Random. “We’re playing a few festivals and some headlining shows — a little bit, but not too heavy. And in the time in between, getting together and starting the writing process for a new album.
“We’re just gonna get together and see what happens this month, and start doing that more regularly until we feel like we’re ready to do it.”
