Amy Lee has confirmed that Evanescence will soon begin work on the follow-up to 2011’s self-titled effort. “That’s the plan,” she told Meltdown of Detroit, Michigan’s WRIF 101.1 FM radio station. “The plan is for us to work on a new album next. We don’t have a timeline going on right now — we’ve been focused on [the ‘Synthesis’] tour and this whole crazy massive thing we’ve been doing. But, yeah, that’s totally the plan. You will hear from us.”

Asked if she has been collecting ideas for new Evanescence songs since the release of the band’s last record, she said: “Yeah, always. I’ve got a nice little pile that’s been building up over the years.”

Evanescence‘s latest release was 2017’s “Synthesis”, which was a reimagining of some of the band’s best-loved songs — as well as a couple of new ones.

In support of “Synthesis”, Evanescence — Lee, bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Troy McLawhorn and guitarist/background vocalist Jen Majura — is currently in the midst of an extensive “Synthesis Live” tour of North America. Also on the bill is Lindsey Stirling, the violinist, dancer and viral video star who appears on the “Synthesis” track “Hi-Lo”. The co-headlining trek, produced by Live Nation, kicked off July 6 in Kansas City, Missouri at the Starlight Theatre and will wrap September 8 in Ridgefield, Washington at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater.

Will Hunt: “Synthesis has done is broadened our horizons, but I’m excited about is the next one”

Will Hunt

“When I’ve gone into all these different projects, I’ve always tried to be the chameleon. I feel like… I’ve actually conformed to the music,” Evanescence‘s longest standing drummer Will Hunt admits, struggling for the right phrase. “Whereas in Evanescence, I’m encouraged to be myself, and be okay with that.” 

He’s talking from the perspective of having played with bands from Black Label Society, to Device and Crossfade. But by the time he joined the group – fronted by iconic vocalist Amy Lee and formed back in 1995 – for third album Evanescence, he was ready to dive into the inherent challenges: complex rhythms, classically-based composition, and Lee’s penchant for originality.

The band’s latest release Synthesis from November, a masterpiece re-configuration of past classics with orchestral and electronic composition, is no different.

Ahead of the quintet’s nearly sold-out Australian tour in four days, Hunt sat down to chat about being thrown into the deep end with these orchestral shows, relating to rhythm guitarist Jen Majura‘s initial struggles after joining in 2015, and embracing his imperfections.

Amy’s described getting to play the Opera House as a dream come true for her. Do you feel the same way?

“It doesn’t matter if you’re from Australia, if you’ve ever been there or it’s something you’ve seen in person. I think as a musician and performer… Even in America, I grew up seeing pictures of that place and knew what it was from a very young age. I remember being in Australia back in 2012, and we were staying across the street from there [the Opera House]… I saw it and was just like, ‘Wow, man! What an incredible-looking building’.

Jen Majura: “I’m looking forward to coming and meeting all the Australian fans”

Jen Majura

With just a week to go until Evanescence kick off the Australian leg of their Synthesis: Live world tour, their first visit to our shores in six years, the anticipation of Australian fans has no doubt hit an all-time high. Following some time off after wrapping up the two U.S. Synthesis: Live tours, Overdrive sat down with guitarist, and more recently, theremin player, Jen Majura to chat all things Synthesis.

While the rest of the band (made up of vocalist Amy Lee, guitarist Troy McLawhorn, bassist Tim McCord, and drummer Will Hunt) have toured Australia in the past, this will be Jen’s first visit to our shores and she couldn’t be more excited. “Woohoo! I’m so looking forward to that trip. I’ve never been to Australia and I’ve always, always wanted to go and now thanks to Amy and Evanescence I finally get the chance to see Australia – and eat some Vegemite.” This excitement is a feeling mutually shared among the rest of the band, with Jen describing the tour as more like a big vacation-style trip with good friends.

Amy Lee on The Age: “I was insecure and unsure”

Amy Lee

In 2003 you’d be hard-pressed to find an Australian commercial radio station that wasn’t blasting Evanescence‘s Bring Me To Life.

The band’s frontwoman, Amy Lee, was transformed into a success story practically overnight. Her rock band sold hundreds of thousands of copies of its debut album with its first week alone. Fallen went on to sell more than 17 million copies worldwide, with one of its tracks featuring on the 2003 Daredevil film.

But behind the smokescreen of success, Lee was struggling to cope with fame.

Amy Lee: “DVD of Synthesis is in production now”

EvanescenceYou have just released a new album after six years. Your fans got crazy about it and it also got really nice comments from the critics. Some of your fans were surprised with the electro-orchestral adaptations and low-down guitars in your new album. How did you decide to make your new album “Synthesis” which includes your older songs with this new sound? What has been changed for Evanescence in six years? Can you tell us the story behind the album?

Well I really wanted to show a lot of these older songs in another light. The symphonic and electronic elements have always been part of our music, but usually spend most of their time in the background, supporting the band. I wanted to show a bigger picture of what Evanescence is, what these songs are to me. These arrangements give the lyrics a new depth to me, and I wanted the challenge of working in a different way, with some classical legitimacy. There was extra freedom with the older songs than there is when we’re putting out a new song, because the point wasn’t to make it a hit, show all sides of it at once. We already did that. So we could just totally run wild with the classical, film score side of the music.

There is a common question on your fans’ heads; are you going to release anything new that couldn’t make it on to the album in the near future? Like “Weight of the World” that you have been playing at the live shows recently. Continue reading
