Evanescence is back!

After a five-year break, Evanescence kicks off a new tour with an album debuting at number one on the Billboard charts. Singer Amy Lee tells Brooke on this week's Music Monday that she is "falling back in love with Evanescence and just coming back home to it after a long time away".

    Im pretty sure the long break was because members of the band kept leaving/: The only original members of the band are Amy and the dude with the dreads.

    LOL, no wonder they weren't producing anything for 5 years. You could literally SEE, HEAR and FEEL the tension between them as a group. She was shaking her head when saying that the decision to come back together wasn't about money.... so sad...

    Sure I'm happy they are coming back but boy am I glad I'm not one of them...

    They really should do the sound track for the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo matches so well with the Lisbeth Salander character

    they were better before this new album, i adore "open door"... since Amy is married her songs don't sounds sad and dark as they were before, no matter how hard they try.

    Evanescence is the best sound to my ears!

    Amy is not the Goth Queen. She is definately the high princess but not Queen. For that honor still belongs to Jinx of the '70's band Coven.

  24. Hassaan

    Great to have them back. The new album is a treat for all evanescence lovers couldn't have asked for more just love evanescence.

  25. Emma

    Is it just me...or do everyone in the band look sad or something, besides Amy Lee?

    Evanescence has been a huge part of my life I have never seen them live I'd love to but I dont have the money anyway If it wasn't for the fallen, open door and even the origin and all the demo ep stuff they did I don't know how I would have made it though what I have Amy lee your an amazing strong and talented woman id give anything just to meet you once and say "thank you"

    March 15, 2012 at 2:53 am |
  33. Sean

    She's a talented singer but the music just reeks of overdone, pointless teenage angst. It reminds of those kids in mid/high school that always had that cop out, whiny "no one understands me and I'm all alone" attitude.

    March 15, 2012 at 7:57 pm |
  34. rtinfow

    Funny, Sean. I'm a 59 year old whose only angst is "how soon can I retire." I can still relate to and appreciate Evanescence. The music is emotional and evocative. I'd love to see them live.

    Maybe not as complex as Mahler or as cerebral as Bach, but powerful, nonetheless.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Truly rarely do you encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your notion is outstanding; the thing is something that inadequate folks are speaking intelligently about. My business is happy that we stumbled across this at my hunt for some thing regarding this.

    I intended to create you that little note just to thank you very much over again for all the spectacular solutions you have contributed in this case. It is simply remarkably generous of people like you to supply freely just what a lot of folks could possibly have sold as an electronic book to help make some cash for themselves, most notably considering that you could have done it in case you considered necessary. Those tactics in addition served to provide a good way to realize that most people have a similar dreams really like my own to understand many more on the subject of this matter. I'm sure there are some more pleasurable occasions ahead for folks who start reading your blog post.
