Why Doesn’t Evanescence Upcoming Record Have A Release Date?

Earlier this year, Evanescence announce that they would be finally releasing a brand new record into the world. That record is ‘The Bitter Truth’ where they would release it incrementally in 2020.

But just why is there no release date.

That’s because they’ve been writing and recording as the year has been going.

Despite Covid-19 as well as life getting in the way, they’re still making some progress with the record where vocalist Amy Lee speaks to SiriusXM in a new interview.

“We’re still ongoing. We don’t have a release date, but I like to look at it like it’s happening now.

“The idea behind this whole thing was always to go one song at a time, release it in real time with the fans while it’s still going on and it’s still fresh and live in the moment more.

“So, in my mind it is being released. This is part of it. We live in a new world where it’s not all about just dropping a big pile of music all at once. People don’t always consume music that way. I don’t.

“I still want to make an album, that’s a part of who we are and I think that’s important to our fans, so we’re doing that. We will drop the back half or whatever soon, but I don’t have a date because I never want to put a date down when I’m still writing. I don’t want to get to the end and say, ‘Eh anything. Just throw some words down’. I can’t do that. It has to be right. Sometimes it takes a minute.”

So we’re getting the new tracks literally as fresh as they come? Cool!
