EVANESCENCE Performs 'Call Me When You're Sober' For 'AOL Sessions': Video Available

EVANESCENCE visited AOL Music's "Sessions" studio last month to perform its new single, "Call Me When You're Sober". With just a piano, cello and guitar at their disposal, the band performed a haunting acoustic version of the track for our cameras, stripping it down to an ethereal essence that was as raw as the words frontwoman Amy Lee sings.

"The lyrics are so in your face, and that's really different for me. I'm usually hiding behind metaphors," says Amy, who penned the song about her failed relationship with SEETHER frontman Shaun Morgan. "But I don't think there's any way to avoid what that song is talking about, which I like. It makes me feel sort of, I don't know, brave and it helps me heal from a painful ending to a relationship."

EVANESCENCE's new album, "The Open Door", out Oct. 3, is the band's first release since the departure of Ben Moody, who helped Lee compose all of the songs on their Grammy-winning, six-times-platinum debut album. But rather than killing the band, Amy says Ben's departure only made them stronger.

"I think we've grown tremendously as musicians," she says. "I mean, after performing so much live, and... I don't know, just getting older. I just think it's a much stronger album. I love 'Fallen', but I think this one's more intimate in some ways. And also just bigger, heavier and more of everything."
