Evanescence fans, it’s time for you to rejoice after a long wait indeed. The band returns after a 5 year hiatus with their new single ‘What You Want’, the first from their new album ‘Evanescence‘ scheduled for release in October 2011. Looks like they’ve gone back to their roots as far as their sound is concerned.
The single debuted at # 68 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week.
The new album follows their 2006 Billboard # 1 album ‘The Open Door‘ which has sold over 5 million units worldwide. Their début album ‘Fallen‘ was released in 2003 and remains their biggest hit till date with a whopping 17 million units sold worldwide, earning them 2 Grammy’s.
Personally, I’m looking forward to their rock-tinged ballads. Front-woman Amy Lee’s voice can totally do justice to them.
