Evanescence had announced back in March that they were in the studio working on their third album to be released this fall, but vocalist Amy Lee has provided an update that the band is taking an unscheduled break from the studio citing potential issues with the label, Wind-Up. Below is the statement:
Hey guys,I wanted to fill you in on what’s been going on.We’ve taken some time out of the studio to get our heads into the right creative space, work on the songs and even write some more music. Terry and I spent a little time together this month working in Jacksonville, kinda like we did before we recorded The Open Door, and the whole band is getting together to jam this week. My record label has been going through some very uncertain times, as are many record labels, and that’s made things a little unclear….we really want to make sure the whole machine is working together when it’s time to put out the album. We are focusing on what we do best: making music. We’ll be back in the studio recording the album soon enough. I think that it can only be stronger for this extra time we’re putting into it, and we will all be better for the hurdles in the end. Thank you, again and always, for being such patient and loyal fans- I believe in this music and I can’t wait to share it with you.
