Evanescence has announced their plan to release their first album of new music in nine years titles the bitter truth. Thus release will be different from prior release with the band deleting to release the album over the course of the year, beginning with the first video ” wasted on you”.
The video wasted on you was shot by each Evanescence band member, lead singer and pianist Amy Lee, bassist Tim McCord, the drummer will hunt, lead guitarist Troy McLawhorn and guitarist Jen Majura – on their phones while currently is isolation. The intimately shot video, directed by P.R. Brown in collaboration with the band, breaks through the emotional stillness and numbness of the current time to reflect the internal highs and lows that each of us cycles through now, on a daily basis.
Find the new song and music video from evanescence. Below as well as a note from Lee. We were recording this music right up until we couldn’t go into the studio anymore and finished it remotely through file sharing and phone calls. Tweaking mixes, adding background vocals, creating the video, and album art all from home has been like water in the desert for me, my light in a dark time.
We are still writing and have a lot more work to do on this album, but this time we wanted to release the songs individually, as we create to live more at the moment with our fans and our music.
Wasted on you wasn’t the song we were planning to release first, but when the whole world went into indefinite lockdown and everything changes so did the feeling and meaning of what we wanted to says right now. I dint write these lyrics about what we’re all now going through, but somehow that exactly what they are.
