Evanescence Bring New Song ‘Take Cover’ to the Stage
Though Amy Lee has a newly released children's album and there has been no official word on a new Evanescence album as of yet, fans are getting a taste of new music at the band's recent shows. They've got a song called "Take Cover" that they've added to the set list.
The song is a more electronic-based track, alternative between moments of rhythmic swaying verses and a more driving anthemic chorus. You can check out a fan-shot performance of the song from a recent show in Dallas in the player above.
Lee recently told Team Rock that the idea to add a new song to the set came as they began to explore the music for their upcoming vinyl box set, The Ultimate Collection, which is due on Dec. 9. She explains, "We are playing a new song live right now. We got together for rehearsals and we really focused this tour on the fans and the history of the band. Kind of in light of this whole box set theme, we wanted to do everything that the fans want and not just what we felt like doing. It has been so fulfilling and so fun."
She adds, "When we got together the guys were really strongly supportive of it, we had a song in the bank. And we were like, 'You know what the fans would really love is a new song. That's all they ever ask for.' So we knocked the dust off an old song called 'Take Cover' that we had in the bank for a while and we loved it. It's one of our favorite moments every night on the tour. I think they like it a lot. I posted the lyrics on Facebook and now I get at least five people in the front row mouthing along, which is extra fun."
As stated, Evanescence will be issuing The Ultimate Collection vinyl box set on Dec. 9, featuring six LPs representing their four studio albums (The Open Door takes up two vinyl records) plus an extra offering titled Lost Whispers consisting of band rarities. You can purchase your copy at the band's website. Meanwhile, Lee's Dream Too Much solo children's album can be purchased through Amazon.
