Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee has finally revealed the details of the unique project which the band has been working on for the past few months. Due this fall, the album, titled “Synthesis”, will be called that “because it is a synthesis — the combination, the contrast, the synergy between the organic and the synthetic, and also the past and the present,” the singer said in a video message announcing the record.

According to Amy“Synthesis” will be different from all previous Evanescence albums in that it will be “about orchestra and electronica. We’re taking our music, stripping out the big distorted guitars, stripping out the rock drums and replacing it with full orchestration in a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds. We’ve gone through our entire catalog of music and picked out the songs that are made to be heard in this way, and we’re sewing them together from the ground up,” she explained.

Clarifying that “Synthesis” is not a collection of remixed versions of existing Evanescence songs, Amy said that the album’s creation involved rebuilding the material “from the ground up, with different tempos, with different parts, with intros and outros and segues and new pieces, and putting this all together like one big piece of music, like one big classical piece, or sort of like a soundtrack. Actually, in a lot of ways, it sounds a lot like the soundtrack of my life. [Laughs]” Continue reading »

According to Amy Lee‘s publicists at Mercenary Publicity, the Evanescence singer and her bandmates are currently in the studio working on new music, expected later this year.

Lee hinted in an interview with AOL last fall that the band was gearing up to make new music, but that it might not take the form of a traditional album release. Lee explained: “We have some new little plan in store, but I don’t wanna give it away yet. But there is some new Evanescence stuff that we’re starting at, but it’s not exactly the most traditional thing. It’s not just, ‘Okay, we’re gonna make a new album right now.’ Not that that’s not coming, but first there’s something else that’s a little bit special and different and [that is] gonna take you down a different path that we wanna try.”

Lee said a while back that she doesn’t use record sales as a gauge for success these days. “Well, you just can’t judge it the same way you used to and by the same model,” she explained. “Having people hear and connect to your song isn’t directly linked to record sales, that’s for sure. I think it may be more accurate to look at how many views on YouTube or something. I’m cool about it. We’ve had a lot of success in the past and that’s awesome. I don’t look at it like this daunting thing that we have to live up to, I look at it like this really positive, awesome thing that wouldn’t have been able to happen if we’d come out for the first time this year.” Continue reading »
