Evanescence Announce Plans For Fall 2011 Release Of New Album

It’s been about three years since Evanescence went on sabbatical after releasing their last album the  The Open Door. The band has announced that they’ll be going into the studio on April 11 to begin recording their third studio album with producer Nick Raskulinecz. (Whose recent producing credits include Foo Fighters, RUSH, Stone Sour, Deftones and Alice in Chains, not too shabby!)

Amy Lee on the new album:

“We can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been working on! We’ve written more than an album of songs.  We’ve been finding ourselves, reinventing our sound, experimenting with things we’ve never done before and at the same time embracing the things we love most about Evanescence. This journey has made us the strongest we’ve ever been as a band, and I am in love with the music. Nick Rasculinecz is the perfect fit for this record and we are all very excited to get into the studio together.”

Wind-up Records President Edward Vetri comments:

“Amy and the band have been hard at work on the new record. The time off has allowed Amy to expand the creative boundaries of Evanescence. We are very excited to bring this music to the world.”

Queensryche Check In From The Studio

Queensryche recently entered the studio to lay down what will be the band’s first studio recording since their American Soldier project in March of 2009. Due out on Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records later this spring, the working title of the forthcoming effort is once again “Bob.”
 
 

“Our very first demo was recorded on a cassette tape by a guy named Bob,” explains front man Geoff Tate. “We’ve kept that tradition ever since and, to this day, put all of our demos in the original case labeled ‘Bob’ until we actually have an album title.”
 
Very superstitious, indeed. The project has been a true meeting of the creative minds since it began earlier this year. And if you think you know “Bob,” think again…
 
The tentative moniker certainly wasn’t meant to be a palindrome like Black Sabbath’s Live Evil… that’s just they way it turned out.
 
“We’ll certainly have the name of the album soon,” states Tate. “In the mean time, we hope you’re getting ready to welcome ‘Bob’ into your own, individual rock universe.”
