    In an exclusive interview with Billboard, Evanescence chanteuse Amy Lee revealed that she has been writing material for the band's upcoming, currently untitled album, which is due out this Fall, over a year ago. Lee says she sped up the writing process upon working with producer Will "Science" Hunt, who shares his name with Evanescence's drummer! Lee and the non-member Hunt, who is not producing the album, wrote most of the music together. Lee told the trade magazine that there are "a lot of electronic influence -- industrial is a better word for it" on the album, the band's first since 2006's The Open Door. The singer said the band is planning to record 16 songs for the album.

    Lee's former bandmate and Evanescence co-founder Ben Moody has a new band called We Are the Fallen, who will release their debut album this May. There is quite a bit of hype surrounding Moody's new project, as ex-American Idol contestant Carly Smithson is fronting the band and America just loves its Idols!

    Do you think taking four years between albums will hurt Evanescence when the new album finally comes out? Are you more interested in the new Evanescence or the We Are the Fallen album?
