Evanescence New Album Delayed

| Filed under: Music Minute


Evanescence's new album was originally due for release in the late summer or fall, but now it has been pushed back indefinitely!

That doesn't sound good.

Singer Amy Lee explains:

"We've taken some time out of the studio to get our heads into the right creative space, work on the songs and even write some more music. We'll be back in the studio recording the album soon enough. I think that it can only be stronger for this extra time we're putting into it."


Does anyone care?

    ..They broke up.

  2. 2

    Fuck you Perez! I care. I can't wait for their CD. Not everyone comes on themselves over Gagwhore or Rihanna. There are still people who enjoy real rock music. Go suck a cock.

    hell yes I do - besides CHRISTina, she's one of the few female voices out there in the 'young' bracket that actually have a voice and not a lolly pop voice. Yes, Gaga has a voice, CHRISTina and Amy-Lee…The End of my list who have voices.

    Yeah Fat ASS

    I CARE

    Evanescence ROCKSSS

    I defiantly care. I love Evanescence, their the ones that got me listening to a variety of music- not just R&B and hip-hop. Hope it comes out soon is just as awesome :)

  6. 6

    Isn't Amy Lee solo now? I thought it was the American Idol reject that was their singer now? Or was that all undone?

  7. 7

    Has been alert!

  8. 8

    amy lee isn't even the lead singer anymore….it's carly smithson from american idol…

  9. 9

    i thought they broke up and started a new band with carly from A.I. ??

  10. 10

    This happens between every record for them. She must be an impossible bitch to work with.

  11. 11

    Amy u've had almost 4 years to get this album out come on now!!!

  12. 12

    OF COURSE, WE CARE! Amy Lee actually has talent! She has a phenominal voice! Will be waiting with anticipation!

  13. 13

    She needs to make amends with the original band members, and make more awesome music.

  14. 14

    well…I was looking forward to seeing what Amy Lee put out. Too bad.

  15. 15

    They didnt break up…geez….the guys from the band that left started their own band and Carly sings for them. Amy still is part of Evanescence, it's most likely just different people again. The band with Carly is called We Are The Fallen

  16. 16

    NO no no..Amy lee IS the lead singer of evenescence. Carly smithson is the lead singer of We Are The Fallen, which is comprised of all the old members of evenescence.

  17. 17

    First off- this was posted like, a month ago by Amy Lee.
    Second off- Amy Lee is still in Evanescence. The people she fired though created a new band with Carly Smithson called We Are The Fallen. Two different bands, people.

  18. 18

    Re: riddlersRe: marcushot1 – are they any good, do you know? the new band, not evanescence…….i mean they're good too…..you get what i'm asking…… :)

  19. 19

    Actually, I think you'll find that many people 'care'.

  20. 20

    um i care. they are my favorite band. i agree with someone else who said not everyones favorite singers are katy perry and lady gaga. idiot

  21. 21

    Typilca Perez shit……if it ain't Gaga then he thinks they're "has beens". The fucked up part is that once Amy Lee and the boys go on tour, they'll be playing the same places Gaga has been and probably pulling in the same crowds and Fatboy here will not mention it.

    Also….as far as the old band members, check out We Are The Fallen. Great CD!!!

    Perez, you really should just NOT post anything regarding hard rock or metal. I remember a year or so ago you refering to James Hetfield as something as a has been to. Does anyone here care to comment on how ignorant that is?

  22. 22

    Re: April 20th – They only have the one single out so far…Bury Me Alive….I really like it, but nothing compares to Amy Lee's pipes! DAYUM…that girl can wail!!!

  23. 23

  24. 24

    Their fans care..not that I am one

  25. 25

    That's funny that Perez posted this today: the day after I just brought out Evanescence's The Open Door album and started jamming to it again. I have loved their studio albums, so far. I hope that the next one is as great as I know it can be. And what Perez surely means by "Does anyone care?" is "Does anyone who worships the Now That's What I Call Music album, flavor-of-the-moment excuses for 'artists' care for music of depth?" Amy Lee is a wonderful singer, but Perez obviously doesn't have the musical background to value that.

  26. 26

    in other words……………..its gonna suck

  27. 27

    Ummmm Amy Lee isn't the group's singer anymore. Get your facts straight. Obvisouly she didn't say this.

  28. 28

    Re: Starlit – to you and the rest of the people saying that she isn't the lead anymore you are WRONG!!…..she is the ONLY original member left from the initial band when Evanescence started but she still fronts it…..some other past members formed a group with the idol girl called WE ARE THE FALLEN(with totally jacks evanescence's style)…they are NOT and i repeat NOT EVANESCENCE!!!! get your facts straight please! peace :)

  29. 29

    Of course i care Perez. Evanessece is my fave rock band and i luv Amy Lee. She has an amazing voice unlike ur lady gaga.

  30. 30

    I still care! They are one of my sounds!

  31. 31

    I care! Amy Lee's voice is beautiful! She is one of my favorite voices. Next to Gaga. :)

  32. 32

    Re: John Perrotto
    Thats a completely different band you knobface. They are called We Are The Fallen. It just happens to have 2 ex-members of Evanescence in it, it is NOT Evanescence. God get your facts straight people.

  33. 33

    Re: hmmwhatever – knobface? real mature…i was just responding to the post so perez could get his facts straight…don't shoot the messenger though with language like that, i'm sure you've done plenty of killing….

  34. clh30 says – reply to this


    I care! Love Amy Lee, she has a wonderful voice.

  35. 35

    I care! Love amy. :)

  36. 36

    I care! I do wish they could put out their albums a bit faster though, I feel like they are never gonna finish this.

  37. 37

    ok first of all listen YOU IGNORANTS!!! ¬¬ … evanescence has never broken up the old sucky sucky member did a new COPY!! of evanescence called "the fallen ones" ¬¬ even the band title is sad … ok sooo perez … jst because it isnt britneys meltdown , lady gaga's genious haha because she is great orrr rihanas beat ups dosent mean that you can mmm make it look ugly oh what do i know wright? am any ways this news is last weeks news … and there are fans THAT DO CARE just like fans of lady gaga , britney or any other artist care abour there favorite band or singer … anyway i love you hahaha and sorry for my sucky sucky english hahaha …

    and i repeat for those who are ignorant … EVANESCENCE IS NOT OVER!!! AND THE OTHER BAND WITH THE AMERICAN IDOL IS JUST A COPY OF THE 1 ALBUM OF EVANESCENCE ¬¬ … you can go ans lisen it on youtube … any way take care everyone :)

  38. 38

    No!! I care!!! That just ruined my day! I was so excited for their new CD!!! :( Amy Lee's literally the only singer who DOESN'T suck live; Miss Squawky Slutville makes my ears bleed, along with many others….

  39. 39

    Re: retardo81 – Nope! The Idol reject you're thinking of is Carly Smithson. She's in a band with previous Ev members (Ben Moody, John LeCompt, and Rocky Gray). The band's name is We Are The Fallen; they sound VERY similar to Evanescence. The CD's really good, though; I really liked it, but I still love Evanescence over We Are The Fallen! :)

  40. 40

    Does it matter who is in Evanescence or We Are The Fallen?
    Both suck.
    We are the fallen is one of the worst bands I have EVER seen live!!! I cannot even believe they were on tour with HIM.
    As for Evanescence - they all sound the same.

  41. 41

    Really, who the f*ck are you to tell anybody that no one cares about anything? You focus all you're attention on Gaga and Lohan and completely ignore everybody else. Amy Lee is extremely talanted and wants to take her time making the perfect album for her fans. Also… I'm starting to think that despite some lack of originality Xtina wouldn't have failed so miserably if you hadn't immediately written her off.

  42. 42

    Seriously Perez she has the most beautiful, unique and powerful voice in the world and I live and breath her music. I've always loved you but you have so gone down in my estimation. She is so much better that the shit music that is in the charts nowadays and obviously you have no taste in music and you couldn't care less about anyone other than Katy Perry and Lord BlahBlah. I'm so upset that they've delayed the album as I've been waiting for it for god knows how long.

  43. 43

    A lot of their music sounds the same. What difference does it make?

    I'm sure their loyal fans care… I'm thankfully not one of them :)

  44. 44

    I don't

  45. 45

    Yes I care very much. Didnt even know she was back in the studio and now i am sad after getting excited. sadface :( She is very organic love her music and miss it.

  46. 46

    As much as I think Amy Lee has a great voice, her narcissism caused me to not want to listen to her music anymore.

  47. 47

    no, i really don't give a fuck about this fucking shit band they are fucking terrible

  48. 48

    Honestly, having spoke to the woman pre-fame, she's a bit… no, save "a bit", she just IS a self-centered bitch. She KNOWS she can sing, and used to spend her evenings online singing for people. Not that many wanted to hear it. But, via the encouragement of some, she stayed. Anyhow, the fact remains that I am a fan, and I am a karaoke slut who sings their songs spot on, so I need more material. I have been delving into Pat Benetar and Lady Gaga to rotate songs a bit.

    I like the music but I would like to see Amy improve the way she treats her fans and volunteers.

  52. 52

    I care. Just my two cents.

  53. 53

    Re: Vordrak – Well, if her "fans" weren't creepy stalkers, such as yourself…

    If I remember, you tried to impose yourself onto her personal life saying "I love Amy and I want to make her problems go away." LMFAO! What a fucking creep!

    Anyway, Amy rocks. :)

  54. 54

    Re: Daniel Dario Castillo – There is something wrong with you. Criticising Amy does not make someone a stalker. Following someone around the internet telling malicious lies about them - that makes you a stalker.

  55. 55

    Some people care about real talent, yes. I love Gaga and Katy as much as I love Evanescence, everyone successful is talented in some way… Obviously! So yes, having sold millions of records, I'd say yeah, people care. Dumb fuck.

  56. 56

    Re: HollyHysteria – …You OBVIOUSLY are extremely retarded, if you think that Evanescence broke up… Ben, John, and Rocky are all gone, yes, but they still haven't broken up… As long as Amy stay with Evanescence, they WON'T be broken up…

  57. 57

    Dang, a lot of you are wrong. We Are The Fallen is comprised of Carly Smithson (A.I.) John LeCompt (Ev), Rocky Gray (Ev), Ben Moody (Ev) and Marty O'Brien, a great studio bassist who's worked with lots of rock bands. Amy Lee said in December 2007 that Ev was done, but has since come back to try to write again with Terry Balsamo (Open Door Ev). So, Evanescence is still aparently going and so is We Are The Fallen. Two different bands, two different chick singers, two really good bands.

  58. 58

    Well, obviously I do. Their music (as a band, not just Amy lee) actually makes me feel. There's not many bands or artists that put their best efforts to make a song sound so good that it'll last for years, maybe decades.

    Evanescence may have been reduced their original members, but their sound will still affect their hearts, whether be the fans, themselves, or an occasional listener.

    Listen to We Are the Fallen's single….and you'll see that while the music is good, it seems to be missing something. It's not the singer, it's not the band members' performance either. It's their heart.
