Amy Lee, the frontwoman of the rock band Evanescence, said in a recent interview that the band are aiming to release a new album in 2020. The group formed back in 1995 and released their debut full-length album Fallen in 2003, and are set to record a follow-up to their 2011 eponymous record. 

Lee spoke about the band’s focus on creating new music this year: “This is sort of a creation year for us,” she said, adding: “We’re playing a few festivals and headlining some shows… And in the time in between, getting together and starting the writing process for a new album.”

The group has been on a number of hiatuses and has undergone several lineup changes. Their last project, Synthesis, was released in November 2017 to positive reviews.

Meanwhile the band is set to tour the US and Europe this year. There is no definitive timeline for the release just yet.
