Singer is 'overwhelmed' by the response to a live recording of new song 'Find A Way.'
Evanescence singer Amy Lee has been keeping busy while her band battles its former label, Wind-Up Records, recording a score for the upcoming indie film "War Story."
As she told MTV News, the majority of that music is atmospheric, as she and composer Dave Eggar concentrated on building "walls of sounds ... blaring cellos and trombones and synthesizers ... a lot of ominous tones." But the film does feature one brand-new song from her, an electronic track called "Push The Button," and it's not the only thing she's been working on in recent months.
As any Evanescence fan is surely aware of, at a Wellspring House benefit show late last year, Lee premiered a song called "Find a Way," and footage of the performance has been making the rounds on YouTube ever since.
Frontwoman talks to MTV News about her 'ominous' score for the indie film 'War Story.'
First things first: Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee isn't talking about the band's lawsuit against their label, Wind-Up Records.
"I can't say a word, I'm sorry," she sighed. "It's really for the best right now."
What she is willing to speak about is the score — her first — she's just recorded with friend and composer Dave Eggar for the indie film "War Story," which will premiere later this month at Sundance. And what she has to say might not be music to the ears of Evanescence fans awaiting the follow-up to their 2011 self-titled album.
"It's going to surprise my fans. It's not what you'd expect; the film is very dark, very introspective. There's not even a lot of dialogue, which is great, because to me it makes this beautiful, sad platform for music," Lee said. "There's a lot of blending of sounds, a lot of ominous tones. I play a lot of keyboard, and a lot of Taurus pedal. There's a lot of low drones.
"There are moments of playing, and it's musical, but there are a lot of moments where Dave and I just built walls of sounds, out of blaring cellos and trombones and synthesizers and harp, all on top of each other," she continued. "Sort of creating new sounds. It's not, like, a soundtrack. it's an atmosphere."
"9.) A New Evanescence Album: I know y’all still know the words to “Bring Me To Life.” Now it’s time to bring a new Evanescence album to life, amirite?? I’m right. Because they haven’t dropped a new disc since their 2011 self-titled, and we want MOAR Amy Lee."
