Evanescence To Release New Album 'The Bitter Truth' Incrementally Throughout 2020

Friday, 24 April 2020 Written by Huw Baines

Evanescence are back with news of their first album of new material in nine years.

The goth-rock stars will follow up 2011’s self-titled LP, and 2017’s orchestral reworkings effort ‘Synthesis’, with ‘The Bitter Truth’, with segments set to be unveiled incrementally in the coming months.

The first taste of the LP is a dramatic electro-rock ballad called Wasted on You, which is lit up by a typically powerful performance from Amy Lee. Discussing their plans, the vocalist said in a statement:

“We were recording this music right up until we couldn’t go into the studio anymore, and finished it remotely through file sharing and phone calls. We are still writing and have a lot more work to do on this album, but this time we wanted to release the songs individually, as we create, to live more in the moment with our fans and our music. 

“Wasted on You wasn’t the song we were planning to release first, but when the whole world went into indefinite lockdown and everything changed, so did the feeling and meaning of what we wanted to say right now. I didn’t write these lyrics about what we’re all now going through, but somehow that’s exactly what they are.”

“As far as business is concerned, this is considered a terrible time to release. But we believe that people need music now more than ever. We do, and we’re not going to wait to share it because who knows what tomorrow brings. Who knows if it even comes?”

Evanescence also have tour plans in the diary for later this year, after pushing the UK and European leg of their Worlds Collide Tour with Within Temptation due to the coronavirus pandemic. The co-headline trek will now call at Glasgow's SSE Hydro, Leeds' First Direct Arena, Arena Birmingham and the O2 Arena in London between September 2 and 6.
