Evanescence have unveiled the fittingly dramatic new video for their latest single ‘Imperfection’. See it first on NME below.
The track is the lead single and one of the new songs from album ‘Synthesis’ – a reworking of some of the band’s best-loved tracks performed with a full orchestra and electronic elements. ‘Imperfection’, is an emotional moment dealing with suicide and depression.
“For me, this is the most important song on the album,” singer Amy Lee said of ‘Imperfection’. “I struggled with the lyrics for a long time because there was a lifetime of work to live up to and I wasn’t sure what to say or how to be good enough. When it finally started pouring out of me, it was undeniable. I had no choice.
“It’s for all the people we’ve lost, all the people who we could lose, to suicide and depression. I’m singing from the perspective of the person left behind, the person in the waiting room. It’s a plea to fight for your life, to stay. Don’t give into the fear- I have to tell myself that every day. Nobody is perfect. We are all imperfect, and it’s precisely those imperfections that make us who we are, and we have to embrace them because there’s so much beauty in those differences.”
She added: “Life is worth fighting for. You are worth fighting for.”

One of the attendees was the composer and songwriter, Michael Wandmacher who posted on instagram and shared moments with the orchestra conductor Susie Seiter and Amy Lee.
Susie Seiter with Amy Lee and Michael Wandmacher: “With current attention to women’s work issues I wanted to celebrate my longtime partnership with @michael_wandmacher who took a chance on a very green but hard working young girl 13 years ago and treated me with so much respect and belief in my potential where SO many others just saw nothing. He opened an enormous door to propel my career as a conductor and orchestrator and I am extremely grateful for him and others like him who are part of the movement to hire qualified women and make the world right. #hirewomen#workfamily“ via Instagram.
Amy started saying “don’t judge me on this one, this isn’t an Evanescence song” just before the singer performed the beautiful song with the orchestra in the second show of the tour in support of the upcoming album “Synthesis”.
