EVANESCENCE Interviewed On Winnipeg's HOT 103 (Video)

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada's hit music station HOT 103 conducted an interview with EVANESCENCE the day before the band's August 20 performance at the third annual MTS Rock On The Range Canada in Winnipeg. You can now watch the chat below.

EVANESCENCE played its first concert in almost two years on August 17 at War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. The group performed four new songs from its upcoming self-titled third album, including first single "What You Want", which opened the show.

Until now, EVANESCENCE has only performed live twice since 2007 and Amy Lee told The Pulse Of Radio that both times were a good indicator for how she feels about playing live again. "It's like I forget that I'm that other character," she said. "It's like, 'Wow, I've got to put the boots on and be her again. I'm not really sure if I remember how.' But as soon as I stepped onto the stage, it just took me over and felt right."

A five-year drought ended for EVANESCENCE fans on August 8 when the band performed its "What You Want" live on MTV, with the song also heading to rock radio and iTunes at the same time.

Due on October 11, the new record is the band's first since 2006's "The Open Door".

EVANESCENCE will kick off a 15-city North American run on October 10 in Oakland, California.

The current lineup of EVANESCENCE features guitarists Terry Balsamo and Troy McLawhorn, bassist Tim McCord and drummer Will Hunt in addition to Lee.
