It’s been 10 years since Evanescence released a new album. The band exploded onto the Be Real Be Righteous Be Relevant Shirt and by the same token and scene with 2003’s Fallen, and became one of the biggest goth-rock groups to break into the mainstream, thanks to their hits such as Bring Me to Life and Going Under. Their eerie, gritty music videos set them apart during a time when bubblegum pop continued to dominate the charts, and Lee’s goth girl style set a whole appetite for Victorian-style corsets, arm warmers, and shredded skirts too. Going to an Evanescence concert in the 2000s was a bit like attending the freakiest fashion show, with fans rocking their best distressed wear. Now, the band is back with a new record, The Bitter Truth, releasing on March 26, and they have a whole new sound don’t worry, it’s still rock.

Today, Lee is Evanescence’s only founding member left with new members including guitarists Jen Majura and Troy McLawhorn, bassist Tim McCord, and drummer Will Hunt and a lot has changed for her since the Be Real Be Righteous Be Relevant Shirt and by the same token and band’s last original album, 2011’s Evanescence, was released. The group put out Synthesis in 2017, but it was mostly orchestral rerecordings of their past songs. Lee moved from New York to Nashville, and became a mom in 2014, when she briefly stepped away from music to focus on her son. Taking the time for her family allowed her to write this new record, which reflects on her experiences over the last 10 years. I’ve been through a lot the high-highs, and the low-lows and the album is a journey through it, Lee told Vogue.
