Amy Lee in Music Week Interview: “You can’t even talk about record sales any more, it doesn’t mean anything”

Evanescence

Amy Lee spoke with Music Week about the music industry and Synthesis. Read what she said:

In the new issue of Music Week, we speak to Amy Lee about the return of multi-million selling rock phenomenon Evanescence and their highly-anticipated new album, Synthesis. Only their fourth studio release in 14 years, the record sees Evanescence – completed by bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt and guitarists Troy McLawhorn and Jen Majura – present new material alongside re-recordings of some of their most defining songs, all with orchestral accompaniment.

Lee told Music Week that while Synthesis explores the group’s latent orchestral potential with long-term collaborator David Campbell, it was also a chance to show how far their musical skills have developed.

“There’s a lot of musical skill that I personally didn’t have,” said Lee. “When we were writing Bring Me To Life I was 19! So just the musical ability that I had when I was 19 as a writer, as a singer, as an everything, I can do all that stuff better now because we’ve had all this time and experience. In addition, living inside those songs live for all these years, it just forever gives you ideas.”

Lee also opened up about the prospect of following the blockbusting success of her past, with Evanescence’s 2003 debut selling 1,324,026 copies to date in the UK according to Official Charts Company data.

Rolling Stone Mexico: Evanescence compartió el video de “Imperfection”

El tema formará parte de su próxima producción discográfica titulada ‘Synthesis’.

Imperfection

Evanescence estrenó el video “Imperfection“, canción que forma parte de su próximo material discográfico Synthesis. El videoclip fue dirigido por Paul R. Brown y filmado en la cuidad de Los Ángeles.

“Para mí, esta es la canción más importante del álbum. Tuve problemas con la letra durante mucho tiempo porque había toda una vida de trabajo con gran calidad anteriormente y no estaba segura qué hacer para que fuera lo suficientemente buena”, mencionó Amy Lee.

El clip tiene como protagonista a una niña que está conmocionada después de vivir una tragedia personal. Después de dos minutos de agitar las cuerdas, el video se llena de visuales teñidos de rojo, mismos que se yuxtaponen entre imágenes de Amy Lee, figuras geométricas y algunos elementos como el fuego y el agua.

Imperfection

Cuando se le preguntó sobre la inspiración detrás de este tema Lee comentó: “Es para todas las personas que hemos perdido y todas esas personas que podríamos perder. Por todas esas personas que piensan en el suicidio y que sufren de depresión.”

Synthesis se estrenará el próximo 10 de noviembre.

First reviews from Evanescence Synthesis Live concert

Two totally different magazines reviewed the second Evanescence show from the current tour of Synthesis at Greek Theatre in Los Angeles which took place last Sunday, October 15th.

The first one, is from Variety magazine which titling the show as a “Amp Up the Drama With 20-Piece Orchestra” and the second from RockRevolt Magazine describe the perfomance as a “live performance created a cinematic and momentous sound, melodies that resonated across the entire venue”, adding that “this did not deter a single fan, however, as the audience was absolutely blown away by the performance”.

Review from Variety Music:

Concert Review: Evanescence Amp Up the Drama With 20-Piece Orchestra at L.A.’s Greek Theatre

Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee made the leap from goth-rocker to opera diva last night, as she and the band led a 20-piece orchestra through a sold-out performance at the Greek Theatre Sunday night, previewing the group’s fourth album, “Synthesis,” which comes out November 10.

Both the concert and the album — Evanescence’s first since its self-titled 2011 effort — offer a reimagining of the group’s catalog with a full symphony orchestra, arranged by none other than Beck’s father, veteran arranger David Campbell, whose collaboration with the band dates back to its first album. The concert was the second of Evanescence’s current “Synthesis Live” tour, as they team up with a different symphony orchestra (under the direction of conductor Susie Seiter) in each city for an 80-minute, 18-song set.

One of the hightlights moments was when Amy Lee sang “Speak To Me”, the end title theme song for the soundtrack of the thriller movie “Voice From The Stone”, for first time in honor of the presence of the co-creators, one of them was Michael Wandmacher who attended to the concert.
