Evanescence released their first album in a decade, ‘The Bitter Truth‘, in March, while Within Temptation’s last album was 2019’s ‘Resist’.
NME spoke to Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee for Does Rock ‘N’ Roll Kill Braincells?! last month. The singer opened up about sexism in the music industry, saying that men often thought she did not write the material.
“It was mostly about not having faith put in me as a writer from certain people around me back then, and I had to say: ‘I’m not a puppet. This is my art’. I had to fight that fight longer that I should,” she explained.
“I’ve gotta be honest, I always felt it had to do with being a woman – and I don’t say that about stuff very often, because I don’t want it to be an issue. But it was assumed the men around me were doing the creation work and I was the one selling it to you.”
