Multi-platinum and Grammy winning rock band Evanescence will light up October when they release their highly anticipated third studio album, Evanescence, on October 11th through Wind-Up Records. Evanescence will mark the band's first release in five years. Recorded in Nashville, the self-titled, 12 track album was produced by Grammy winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Rush) and shows a clear evolution in the band's writing while maintaining their signature sound.
The album's first single will be the hard-hitting "What You Want," which is set to impact radio on August 9th. The single will be available exclusively on iTunes beginning August 9th and then to all digital retailers on August 16th. "It's about freedom," singer Amy Lee said about the song in a recent interview with MTV. Other tracks on the album include "Lost In Paradise" which Lee says is "probably the most intimate song on the album" and "Oceans" and clearly showcase Lee's growth and range as a songwriter. "The music and the lyrics have gone more aggressive than they ever have before too," added Lee. "We are so excited to release this thing. We've been working on this music for a very long time, and seeing it all finally come together is a really amazing feeling. This album is about us and also our fans--we're combining the best of Ev with some new attitude and we're just dying to share it."
Evanescence will also hit the road this fall for a 15-city North American tour in support of the album which kicks off October 10th in Oakland, CA and continues through November 1st in New York City (full routing below). New York rock band The Pretty Reckless will be the direct support and Rival Sons will be the opening act on all dates.
