Following a three-year sabbatical after the multi-platinum, worldwide success of its sophomore effort, The Open Door, the third album is produced by Grammy-winning Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Rush). It contains the hard-driving anthems and introspective ballads the hard rock group has mastered since its breakout debut in 2003. Eight years after the debut album, the new 12 tracks demonstrate the growth of the band’s writing style and lyrical content.
Amy says, “It’s about freedom,” when describing the album’s first single, My Heart is Broken, a track driven by Amy’s signature lyrics and piano playing. Other songs include Lost in Paradise, which Amy calls, “The most intimate song on the album” and the hard-charging, What You Want.
“We can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been working on! We’ve been finding ourselves, reinventing our sound, experimenting with things we’ve never done before and at the same time embracing the things we love most about Evanescence,” says Amy. “This journey has made us the strongest we’ve ever been as a band, and I am in love with the music. Nick Rasculinecz is the perfect fit for this record.”
