The old adage ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ may indeed be true, but Evanescence fans who have been patiently waiting for the return of the band don’t have to wait any longer. On Oct. 2, Amy Lee and company played a 13 song breathtaking set at the Rock in Rio Festival in Brazil, a week before their new self-titled album is released (Oct. 11).
Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee is beyond stoked to finally share her new collection of hard rock songs with the world on Oct. 11. But the set didn't come easy. Musically, Lee says singing on the release was tougher than on previous Evanescence albums, and it pushed her guttural, goth-textured vocals as far as possible.
Evanescence have released another new song from their upcoming self-titled album, something they have been doing with a fair degree of regularity. The song 'The Other Side' is streaming here (after having done so via Hot Topic earlier this week) and the band once again includes the lyrics so you can play desktop karaoke and singalong! You are even invited to share them with your friends via Facebook and Twitter. Who needs trading cards when you can trade Evanescence lyrics!
As the Oct. 11 release date of Evanescence's self-titled album comes closer and closer, the band appears to be premiering new tracks left and right.
There's no better way to ramp up excitement for a new album than by teasing fans with new songs, and that's just what the Amy Lee-fronted Evanescence are doing with their forthcoming self-titled album. The band has released 'Made of Stone,' which is a preview track, not an official single. Who cares "what" it is in terms of record label jargon; all that matters is that it's good because it is.
