Evanescence will be taking over 2010 with their highly anticipated third studio album due for late August/early September release date. Front woman, Amy Lee confirmed that Evanescence will be entering the studio this week to begin work on their third album with Grammy Award Winning producer Steve Lillywhite.
One of the coolest things I ever saw at a Disney event was when Lee took the stage at Nightmare Before X-Mas 3-D at Hollywood's El Capitan theater two Halloweens ago for an entrancing, engaging and endlessly awesome rendition of "Sally's Song" from Nightmare Revisited. She's grown immensely as a vocalist, and this new album promises to be one of the most important rock records of the year.
"I can't expain how excited I am to make this record," said Amy Lee. "Over the past year and a half these songs have become the center of my life, and I can't wait to hear what they grow into in the studio. I think our sound is evolving into something that will surprise people, in a very good way. I feel, as always, that growth can be an incredible, limitless thing if you let it. I never want to make the same album twice."
The band, famous for hits like "Bring Me to Life", "My Immortal," "Going Under" and "Call Me When You’re Sober", promises to stay true to the core Evanescence sound while integrating additional new sounds to create "another world." The music's core, which ranges from whisper- soft to painfully aggressive spans sounds of rock, goth and classical, led by Lee's passionate vocals.
Evanescence is founder Amy Lee on vocals, piano, keyboards and harp; Terry Balsamo on guitar; Tim McCord on bass; Will Hunt on drums; and new collaborator Will "Science", who will provide programming and drums, as well as additional production.
Evanescence has sold nearly 20 million records worldwide, more than 8 million in the U.S. alone, and won two Grammys® with their major-label debut Fallen, and a Grammy® nomination with their second album, The Open Door.
