Evanescence will finally release another record, after waiting four years since their last album dropped
Except don't expect the same Evanescence you once knew!
For starters, only one person remains from the original Grammy-winning band - Amy Lee. You'll recall that all the original boys in the band parted ways with Amy sometime ago to form a new group called Fallen, with new lead singer Carly Smithson.
It's safe to say that Amy hasn't spoken to her original crew in sometime, but she emerges now with new set of musicians and a new sound for the band. She explains:
“It's not an organic record. Our idea is to take synthetic and atmospheric sounds and find a way to blur the line between organic and synthetic… There is something really cool happening in music right now. There are bands that sound like they're from another time — it's like '80s throwback music with analogue synthesizers and Moogs. I love it. I've been listening to a lot of La Roux.”
That's nice, but fans like the old Evanescence sound. And if you don't give it to them, don't be surprise if some of them "fall" in line with another band.
