Band working with U2 producer on long-awaited third effort

Evanescence say they're taking 'big risks' on new album
Evanescence drummer Will Hunt has said that they are taking "some really big risks" on their new album.

The band have been working on the follow-up to 2006's 'The Open Door' with U2 producer Steve Lillywhite, and hope to release it later this year.

Hunt has said there "a lot of cool new things going on [the album], both electronically and futuristically. I think she [singer Amy Lee] is doing something that's very special and hasn't been done before".

Hunt also said that fans needn’t fear a complete musical departure, adding: "It's always going to sound like Evanescence, because it's Amy Lee singing. But the vehicle for that voice can be different and still be Evanescence. She is taking some real big risks and honestly, I think it's amazing!"

This album will mark the first time the band have recorded any material with their new line-up. Three of the band's five members left during 2006 and 2007, with two joining former member Ben Moody in his new band We Are The Fallen.
