Violin dancer Lindsey Stirling has released an official music video for her cover of Evanescence‘s “My Immortal”, the theme song for super angst goth girls all over the planet. Shot in front of a rather sizable audience (the vast majority of whom are recording Stirling with their cellphones), the video is well produced and stylishly done. However, can I just go ahead and say that I’m beyond sick and tired of this song? I heard it enough times when Fallen came out and giving the song another breath of life is the last thing we need to do here. It’d be like bringing back “With Arms Wide Open”, although that might be a little worse now that I think about it…

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? READ MORE
On April 11th, the Revolver Golden Gods took place, giving praise and recognition to the rock and metal community. Famous musicians, such as Dee Snider, Chris Jericho, Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson, Slash, Amy Lee, and many more, were in attendance. It was a night meant to not only celebrate the achievements of rock and metal musicians and their offerings, but it was also a night for the fans, a way to honor their passion and their love. And it was a night that did absolutely nothing to spread the word and the importance of rock and metal. READ MORE
It’s been five years since Evanescence has released an album. Usually that long of a delay would see fans moving on and an artist left behind, forgotten, abandoned. Evanescence defied that trend and are now back with their third album, Evanescence. The question is if the album is a return that shocks and awes or one that falls flat. Check after the jump for my take on the self-titled album!
A few days ago we gave you a teaser clip for Evanescence‘s video for What You Want. Well, today, the video has come out and you can check it out after the jump!
Evanescence will be releasing their video for What You Want next Tuesday on Vevo but we’ve got a 20-second clip for you to check out after the jump. The clip shows the band rocking out in front of a crowd as well as brooding shots of singer Amy Lee walking along a pier (at least that’s what it looks like). Check it out and get excited for the upcoming self-titled third studio album.
Say whatever you want, but the upcoming release of Evanescence‘s third album, which is self-titled, is generating a lot of industry and fan buzz. Considering that it’s been five years since The Open Door, it’s no wonder. Personally, I thought only Tool had that kind of staying power, but it looks like there is something about Amy Lee that keeps people drawn in. To tease fans just a little more, Evanescence has released the official artwork for the upcoming album, which drops October 11th. Personally, I think it’s a bit plain and uninventive. Check it out after the jump and let me know what YOU think. READ MORE
Official tour dates for the Evanescence, Rival Sons, and The Pretty Reckless tour have been released. The tour goes for just over three weeks and hits several of the major cities in North America. Evanescence will be touring in support of their new, self-titled album, which is their first new release in five years.
It’s been five years since The Open Door and Evanescence is on a fast track to release their self-titled album later this year. Well, after a few years of waiting for new material, you can finally hear the new single, What You Want, right now! Below is the live version that was filmed on MTV but after the jump you can hear the studio version. I’m actually really digging on it! It’s a fun track and Amy Lee sounds great. What are your thoughts?
MTV recently conducted an interview with Amy Lee of Evanescence to discuss the status of the upcoming self-titled album, which hits stores October 11th courtesy of Wind-Up Records. During the interview, they got to hear the new single, What You Want, and shared some of it in a video, which you can check after the jump. What do you think? Is it the sound you were expecting?
Though still untitled, the new Evanescence album has a release date of October 4th. Also, guitarist Troy McLawhorn, who left the band to join Seether but then left them citing “a very personal invasion of trust”, is back in Evanescence. What do you think people? You ready for a new album?
Okay, admission time: I loved ‘Fallen‘. It wasn’t a musical masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but it was a fun bubblegum pop hard rock album that wasn’t pretentious and had a lot of catchy songs. Now, ‘The Open Door‘ on the other hand was pretty awful. Nothing on that album stood out to me and I quickly shelved it. So, I’m kinda on the fence after reading that Amy Lee and the Evanescence crew are supposedly entering the studio to record their third album with producer Nick Rasculinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones, Alice In Chains)
