Amy Lee spoke with Billboard about Evanescence’s upcoming album, a follow-up to 2006’s ‘The Open Door’. “It wouldn’t be an Evanescence album if it didn’t sound somewhat like Evanescence,” Lee said. “I feel like our band has always had programming and inspirations from Bjork and Depeche Mode and Massive Attack and that kind of thing. It’s not like we’re making one of those records; it’s just, like, that is playing a bigger role in the sound of Evanescence this time. Those little nuances and hints come in in ways that are cool. The sound that we’re going for as a group is to fuse synthetic instruments with organic instruments and create something that sounds like a whole new place. It just sounds larger than life.” Read more, including Amy’s thoughts on her former bandmates forming We Are The Fallen, here.
