EVANESCENCE's AMY LEE Interviewed By HALESTORM's LZZY HALE At 'Revolver Golden Gods' (Video)

HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale and TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider conducted an interview with EVANESCENCE at the fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods awards, which was held on April 11 at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles, California. You can now watch the chat below. EVANESCENCE frontwoman Amy Lee was also honored with the "Best vocalist" award at the event, which was broadcast for the first time live in its entirety on Xbox LIVE, as well as on the Xbox and Revolver Facebook pages.

EVANESCENCE released its self-titled third major label album last October, five years after the group issued its last effort, 2006's "The Open Door". But one of the reasons the new record took so long to come out is that Lee began work on a version of it in 2010 that she ended up scrapping. The Pulse Of Radio asked Lee why that first attempt at recording didn't work out. "I think it really was a case of us going in the studio too soon," she said. "I think people a lot of times get pressure for moving fast, especially in this day and age — you know, the public has a short attention span, you know, it's all about striking while the iron's hot. I don't believe that. I believe in great music. If this is gonna be our big EVANESCENCE comeback record, it wasn't there yet. So we kept working. We ended up making a record that I'm just, it's my favorite so far. We're all really proud of it."

"Evanescence" sold 127,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Lee, who got married in 2007, says she and her husband are ready to deal with the reality of her being away on tour for months. She told Noisecreep, "It's always going to be hard on a relationship, being in a band, but my husband and I have really had a chance to build our life together and so now we're ready for everything that happens when I'm on the road."
