AMY LEE: NO PLANS TO DO ANYTHING WITH EVANESCENCE

Evanescence singer Amy Lee has confirmed in a new interview with Rolling Stone that she doesn't have any plans "to do anything with the band" for the foreseeable future. Asked about the group's current status, Lee explained, "The situation is we're not doing it now. I don't like to make predictions about the future, because I'm honestly open-minded, and I would never want to say I'm done with any of it, because it's a huge part of me. I've loved my time with Evanescence, I wouldn't want to just throw it away, but, for the foreseeable future, I don't have any plans to do anything with the band."

Lee continued, "It's really important to me to take some time to show some different sides of myself . . . there does need to be other outlets for me to make music."

Lee, who became a mother for the first time last month, said that she keeps in touch with the members of the band, but added that "the days of living on the road and an album cycle be this giant daunting thing of working in the studio for six months then going on the road for a year or two, they're behind me."

On August 25th, Lee will release a new album called Amy Lee With Dave Eggar: Aftermath, consisting of music she wrote with Dave Eggar for an independent film called War Story. The movie premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.

The last Evanescence album, a self-titled effort, came out in 2011.
