It’s been eight years since Evanescence released their self-titled third studio album keeping fans hungry for new music. Now, it seems the wait may soon be over.
During an interview with Sirius XM’s Grant Random at Epicenter Festival, Amy Lee said the band plans to have a new album out in 2020.
“This is sort of a creation year for us,” the singer said when asked about a new album. “We’re playing a few festivals and some headlining shows — a little bit, but not too heavy. And in the time in between getting together and starting the writing process for a new album.”
When asked how soon new music would be released, Lee said, “Hopefully next year,” adding, “We’re just gonna get together and see what happens this month, and start doing that more regularly until we feel like we’re ready to do it.”
