Evanescence frontwoman and founder, Amy Lee, was recently interviewed by Rolling Stone this week and recalled the period that she had some issues with her bandmates right after he had a devastating loss in her family.
While Amy and Evanescence still promote their latest album named ‘The Bitter Truth‘ which was released back in March, the band is getting ready for their upcoming tour which will start in Madrid, Spain on October 7. ‘The World’s Collide Tour’ will end in Zurich, Switzerland on April 15, 2022.
In her latest interview with Rolling Stone, Amy Lee was remembered the days she had her own bus and the other members were traveling to the tour with another bus. She was asked that whether there was any tension within the band while she was having though days after she lost her brother due to his long-time battle with cancer.
As you might already know, back in 2018, Lee posted a message on her official Facebook account and announced that his brother Robby passed away from this world at the age of 24 because of severe epilepsy and called Robby her best friend in life and her favorite people on earth. In that interview, Evanescence frontwoman explained her relationship with her bandmates after losing Robby.
Here is what she said:
“You kind of just have to live moment to moment, and make the decisions that are right for your heart and your life. So at that moment, I didn’t know what I was going to be doing the next year, or the year after that. I was just grateful for the good parts about what we had, and doing my best to fight the obstacles. I still feel like that.
I definitely feel differently now in terms of my relationship with my career. I know that I’m where I’m supposed to be. And it’s a wonderful thing to feel, rather than just, ‘I don’t know what I’m doing, but I’m having fun and people seem to like it, so this will last a while.’
There’s a different feeling that you’ve been doing for 18 years and it’s like this is a good thing in my life, I can look at my life and see all the joy that has brought me and brought others.
It’s been such a life-giving thing this, I have had to fight for it against a lot of different entities across the span of time. But it has all been worth it to be here in this moment and to be with my band, who I really, truly love, making music that I feel is such a true and real representation of who we are.
It’s bigger than myself, I couldn’t do it by myself. I love it so much, I’m so grateful for all of it. And our fans – we have millions of fans all around the world who have stuck with us, and cared, and just supported us in such a beautiful way. It really feels like just a world.
There is a whole world, a whole community of stuff that is a product of all of that. And I have not at every moment in my life loved it and wanted to rush back to it. There have been plenty of times where I wanted to run away and wondered if we were ever going to do anything again.”
