We have a sneak preview from the Arkansas goth-rockers' third album
Evanescence release their self-titled new album on October 10, but you can exclusively hear a track from it, ‘End Of The Dream’, by clicking on the link below.
It’s the band’s first LP in five years, and frontwoman Amy Lee has expressed regret at leaving such a gap between 2006’s ‘The Open Door’ and the new album. She told NME:
We really wanted it to be out this year. It’s been too long. I was like, ‘I’m not waiting until 2012, we have to push this through and make it happen this fall!’
She also revealed that there’s more of an electro influence at play this time around, telling Rolling Stone:
I remember when I first heard MGMT, their first record – I loved it, loved it. I have always loved Portishead, Massive Attack, those electro things. I finally found the sweet spot was combining the two things, combining Evanescence with some new elements
The band return for a UK tour this autumn – their first in four years – starting at HMV Hammersmith Apollo in London on November 4 and ending at O2 Academy Birmingham on November 13. The first single from ‘Evanescence’, ‘What You Want’, is out now.
