Eevanescence will hold a virtual concert in October, to be streamed online to fans all over the world. Singer Amy Lee spoke about the performance during an appearance yesterday (Wednesday, September 23) on MSNBC‘s “Way Too Early”. She said (see video below): “We have to put that together still, but we’re going to find a way to do something.

“This whole year has been all about finding a new way to do what we usually do. It’s a challenge, but we’ve really enjoyed finding a way to get through and connect with people, even though we have to be home and do things differently. So we’re gonna make some kind of a virtual performance from home with the whole band from all the world, actually — we have people all over the country, and one bandmember in Germany.”

Lee added: “So, yeah, it’ll be cool to be able to just do something for people and inspire people, hopefully, through that music.”

Evanescence has released the official music video for ‘Use My Voice’, the band’s new single that “captures the current socio-political zeitgeist of advocacy and activism” (MTV). The visuals follow frontwoman Amy Lee, her bandmates, and a diverse group of citizens as they unite for change and justice. The clip was directed by acclaimed filmmaker Eric HowellLee first met Howell back in 2015 when she was asked to write the end title theme for his film “Voice From The Stone”, starring Emilia Clarke (“Game Of Thrones”).

Beginning with Amy alone in the dark and ending in a collective light-filled demonstration as the day breaks, the video serves as a hopeful metaphor of moving from darkness into a more illuminated future by being heard.

Earlier this month, Evanescence partnered with HeadCount, one of the leading non-partisan, non-profit voter information services in the U.S. to help people navigate the registration and voting process by providing information on options to vote safely during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We are proud to stand up and join the fight against the injustice, lies and oppression that plague our country and the world,” Amy said. ‘No matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, or who you love, your voice matters. We hope to shine a light in the darkness, to empower and inpire. Use your voice. Vote.”

This past April Evanescence announced that their new album “The Bitter Truth” would be arriving later this year, after initially emerging via a series of singles. The band’s frontwoman Amy Lee recently told SiriusXM of where they are that with that:

“We’re still ongoing. We don’t have a release date, but I kind of like to look at it like it’s happening now. The idea behind this whole thing was always to go one at a time, release it at a little at a time, in real-time with fans, while it’s still going on and it’s still fresh and live in the moment more.

So, in my mind it is being released – this is part of it. We live in a new world where it’s not all about dropping a big pile of music all at once. People don’t always consume music that way… I don’t.
