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.
Evanescence are emerging from their self-imposed break from music one step at a time, and they are armed with new personal attitudes and musical skills! With the new single 'What You Want' released earlier this month, angel-voiced singer Amy Lee and her bandmates are preparing for the release of their self-titled third album on Oct. 11 by stepping back onto the stage, as well.
When tragedy struck Japan back in March in the form of massive earthquakes and a tsunami that damaged significant portions of the country, many people felt the need to volunteer their time or donate money to help the cause. The extreme devastation also touched Evanescence singer Amy Lee in a very profound way -- it inspired her to pen a ballad titled 'Never Go Back' on the band’s upcoming self-titled third album.
Evanescence are the rare band that can walk the dangerously thin tightrope between hard rock and pop without a net, and that's just what the Amy Lee-fronted outfit does with 'What You Want,' the piano-driven first single from their self-titled album due out Oct. 11.
