Evanescence have never been apologetic about taking their time between discs. When their latest self-titled album was released last year in October, almost five years had passed since their previous album. With that in mind, Fuse recently caught up with Evanescence before their performance at the Beale Street Music Festival (May 4-6) in Memphis, Tenn. to ask them about it.

Evanescence’s leading lady Amy Lee was recently selected as the recipient of the Luella Bennack award to be presented at the United Cerebral Palsy’s 11th annual ‘Women Who Care’ luncheon. The luncheon, scheduled for May 3 in Manhattan, N.Y., celebrates trailblazing women who achieve beyond the expected and inspire others through their work and charity, a description that Lee certainly lives up to.
