"We've had the same dream from the beginning; to write with everything in us and totally do the music we love while at the same time using that as a tool to share with others what Christ has done in our lives." -Ben Moody, 1998
How many freakin' times is Evanescence going to get the question... "Are you a Christian Band?" We didn't register the domain to provoke debates or discussions on the matter, the domain was registered in jest so don't even try to start anything silly with emails on the subject. It's about the music, and Evanescence is one of the greatest bands in rock music today! As the domain says, the answer is simple; Evanescence is Not a Christian Band, although in their personal lives they are all Christians. The goal of this site is to be a resource for most of your Evanescence needs. So Enjoy! -Kevin (blackvulture) & Katia (katia)

This article from MTV News talks quite a bit about the new album.
This summer's going to be an impossible one for Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee.
If she ruled the world (or at least ran her band's label, Wind-Up Records), The Open Door would be on shelves by week's end. But instead, fans will have to wait until October 3 for the follow-up to Evanescence's 2003 breakthrough, Fallen.
"I'm just totally dying to get it out," she said. "It seems like it's been forever since Fallen," which has sold about 6.5 million copies in the United States. Plus, Lee's just flat-out psyched about The Open Door.
"I feel like with Fallen, a lot of those songs sound like I was trying to prove myself and establish what we were and our sound," she explained. "I was trapped having to feel a certain way. But with the new record, I sort of went with everything. I am not afraid to feel happy sometimes, and I think there's moments on the album with sensuality, which is really fun and beautiful, instead of the last time, where I felt like I was only getting out part of me. This record embraces the whole me."
It's been a hell of a three years for Evanescence. The forthcoming disc — which will feature 13 tracks including "Good Enough," "Weight of the World" and the first single, "Call Me When You're Sober" — will be the Arkansas band's first since the departure of lead guitarist and principal songwriter Ben Moody, who jumped ship in 2003, in the middle of Evanescence's European tour.
Things are moving forward with the new album. Terry had a stroke this past November which pushed everything back several months, but at the moment things are on track for a late August - October release for the new CD and the first single impacting radio during midsummer.
