Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee was the recent interview guest of Emily Carter of Kerrang and talked about the band’s upcoming album ‘The Bitter Truth’ which will be released on March 26, 2021, via BMG: The New Music Company.
The Bitter Truth will be Evenascence’s first-ever album after Synthesis which was released back in 2017. In addition to that, the album will be the first album of all-new material after releasing their self-titled album in 2011.
According to Amy, the band entered the studio in the very first month of 2020 and they were planning to work with various producers. However, after the COVID-19 outbreak, Nick Raskulinecz has become one and only producer of the album.
In her latest interview, Amy Lee talked about the singles they’ve released for ‘The Bitter Truth’ and shared their plans on how they will perform ‘Yeah Right’ live as it’s one of the hardest songs to perform on stage.
Here is what she said:
“When making a complete album, especially after all this time, I always want to just put out a statement, like, ‘This is where we’re at, this is who we are’ – it has to be a whole spectrum of emotions and reflections that make up who you are, who the band is.
So far, I feel like each song that we put out is a very different color of the spectrum and there are more colors yet to come, for sure.”
“Yeah Right has been a long time coming; I started that song a decade ago. It was mostly there, it had been at the top of the pile for a really, really long time – we’ve always had a cool pile of extra scraps and pieces of unfinished songs.
That’s just one that kept on not plugging in, and then something happened this year when we got together and started playing and pulling songs together in pre-production – I was like,‘I finally know how we can make it work!’ It’s one of those songs that we’re going to have to figure out how to do live because I don’t want to be glued to the moog the whole time. It might be a good time to whip out the keytar!”
