Evanescence To Take A Break

Amy Lee


Great idea. I think you guys should. Really. You work so hard, you need to sit back and enjoy it a little more. Take as long as you need. Ten years, 20 years…your call. We’ll be here, not waiting for you to return.

Frontwoman Amy Lee says once they stop touring for their last album (whatever it was called), they’ll hang up their hats for a minute.

“I’m thinking we’ll take a break…,” she tells NME.com. “I’m really not sure what I’ll do next. At the end of any really long tour, you need to get your head in order. I think at the end of the run we’ll go on a break for a while and figure things out.”

She said long breaks can be good for a band. And for people who don’t like that band.

“People have the idea that you have to keep putting stuff out while people remember you. But I’d rather make something that’s awesome and then make people remember again. I hope it doesn’t take five years, but I don’t want to put a timeline on it either.”
