Rock band Evanescence will be going on hiatus after their current tour, says singer Amy Lee. They will be playing some shows in London in November and that will be it for the foreseeable future. Considering that their latest album Evanescence (review) took five years to be released after 2006’s The Open Door, fans are almost certainly left worried and irked.
Lee states in an interview with NME magazine, “I haven’t been sitting down to write. I’m thinking we’ll take a break first. I’m really not sure what I’ll do next. At the end of any really long tour you need to get your head in order. I think at the end of the run we’ll go on a break for a while and figure things out…
“Taking long breaks is seen as a bad thing, but I don’t think it’s a bad thing. People have the idea that you have to keep putting stuff out while people remember you. But I’d rather make something that’s awesome and then make people remember again.
“I hope it doesn’t take five years, but I don’t want to put a timeline on it either. We’ll all be doing our own thing for a while. They’re (my bandmates) very talented and they’ll all be fine.”
Alright Evanescence fans, what are your thoughts here?
