EVANESCENCE frontwoman Amy Lee reveals details of new album “Synthesis” which will arrive later this year. Amy stated that the new album will be different from all previous EVANESCENSE albums. You can watch the video below where Amy talks about the upcoming album.
Earlier this year in an interview Amy stated: “It’s something unique, something complex, something a little bit beyond that – and it’s definitely new territory for all of us.”
Amy explains new album:
“We’re calling it ‘Synthesis’, because it is a synthesis — the combination, the contrast, the synergy between the organic and the synthetic, and also the past and the present.”
Amy continues: “This album is about orchestra and electronica. We’re taking our music, stripping out the big distorted guitars, stripping out the rock drums and replacing it with full orchestration in a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds. We’ve gone through our entire catalog of music and picked out the songs that are MADE to be heard in this way, and we’re sewing them together from the ground up, with different tempos, with different parts, with intros and outros and segues and new pieces, and putting this all together like one big piece of music, like one big classical piece, or sort of like a soundtrack. Actually, in a lot of ways, it sounds a lot like the soundtrack of my life.”
EVANESCENCE is collaborating on new album with David Campbell who arranged the all of their previous albums. The band also announced a special tour this fall and they will be performing with a full orchestra. More details will be announced soon…
