Amy Lee is “moved and stoked” by the fans that have supported Evanescence’s rise back into the spotlight.
The singer-songwriter fronts the American rock band, which also comprises Terry Balsamo, Tim McCord, Troy McLawhorn and Will Hunt.
The band have been out of the limelight for several years, but have a new album out soon. The self-titled record will hit stores on October 11 and is the group’s first since 2006’s The Open Door.
Amy appreciates the on-going support from the band’s “true” fans.
“There’s a difference between a fan who goes on iTunes and buys the single and the fan who’s in for life, who buys the first record and the second record. I love the fans that really care about the band – and we totally have that,” she explained.
“I’ve been so moved and stoked this past year watching the fans come back to life. I’ve been doing promo and travelling around and I’m recognising people from seven years ago and you really do get to build little relationships with people around the world.”
Amy appreciates the humbling things in her life. The 29-year-old star loves seeking home comforts after her hectic lifestyle on the road.
“I appreciate the simple stuff now more than I used to. I’ve had a lot of ‘fantastic’ in my life, I’ve had a lot of amazing, unforgettable moments, but home, family, your roots, that’s so much more important to me than all of that,” she told Kerrang! magazine.
“It’s important to remember that because no matter what happens, no matter how crazy things get, that’s secure.”
