Amy Lee Says “I Don’t Know the Plan with Evanescence”

The band, which had been on hiatus since 2012, then scheduled three U.S. shows leading up to the Japan date. While the show announcements have led to hopes for new Evanescence material, frontwoman Amy Lee says the band doesn't have anything planned so far.

"I am definitely working and making music with every intention of people hearing it at this point," Lee tells Rolling Stone. "I don't know the plan with Evanescence. I don't have any news or plans for new Evanescence, but new music for me, for sure."

The U.S. shows will take place November 13 in Nashville, November 15 in Dallas and November 17 in Los Angeles. Evanescence will then play Ozzfest Japan on November 21. As for future shows, Lee thinks it's a possibility.

"We got offered to do Ozzfest Japan in the beginning of the year, so I was like 'Let's say yes to that,'" she says. "I just added the three U.S. dates on to it so we could get a little practice before doing a big gig where everything is out of your control. It will be good to see the fans again. I'm going to be keeping my eye open to us for more opportunities. Like probably next year."

Even without Evanescence, Lee has kept herself busy. Over the past two years, she's written two film scores, and she recently launched a cover series, beginning with her take on Portishead's "It's a Fire."

"It feels really good to have a lot of different things going on at once in the sense that I feel like I'm not just flexing one muscle," Lee says. "The point of it is just to show another side of myself again aside from what people already know about me as the Evanescence girl. It's cool to be able to show what else I can do."
