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 FMradio 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.
