‘Evanescence’ Singer Interviewed By Mexico’s ‘Terra’ (Video)


Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee was recently interviewed by Mexico’s Terra. You can now watch the chat below. A five-year drought ended for Evanescence fans on Monday night (August 8th.) when the band performed its new single, “What You Want”, live on MTV, with the song also heading to rock radio and iTunes at the same time. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming third major label album, a self-titled affair due out on October 11.

Lee said that the hard-driving song was a “really natural choice” for a first single, adding, “It’s kind of about coming back in some ways: it’s about the fans, it’s about this Evanescence renaissance that we’re having, and I think it makes sense.”

Until now, Evanescence has only performed live twice since 2007 and Lee told The Pulse Of Radio that both times were a good indicator for how she feels about playing live again. “It’s like I forget that I’m that other character,” she said. “It’s like, ‘Wow, I’ve got to put the boots on and be her again. I’m not really sure if I remember how.’ But as soon as I stepped onto the stage, it just took me over and felt right.”

The new record is the band’s first since 2006’s “The Open Door”.

Evanescence will play its first U.S. show in two years on August 17 in Nashville, with the full North American road trip tentatively scheduled to begin sometime around the album’s release.(tour dates below).
