Amy Lee, raven-haired singer for Evanescence, has spoken about their new album, the loss of members and “the Christian thing”.

In an interview with Billboard, Lee discussed the trials and travails of working on their sophomore album ‘The Open Door’. Out in October, it follows up their 2003 multi-platinum debut ‘Fallen’.

Lee admits “It took longer than I thought. But, I am a perfectionist. We took all the time we needed and wrote and wrote and wrote. If it wasn't good, I threw it away. I wanted every piece of it to be as good as it possibly could be.”

She also spoke about the reconfigurations of the band since the first album. Bassist Will Boyd and Lee’s songwriting partner Ben Moody are gone. Lee said, “Without (Moody), it wasn't like I was thinking, "Oh, my God, what am I going to do?" It really had gotten to the point where it was so horrible and dramatic, it was a relief and I knew the band could continue.”

Lee rejected “the Christian thing” in the interview, “I'm so over it. It's the lamest thing. I fought that from the beginning; I never wanted to be associated with it. It was a Ben thing. It's over. It's a new day.”
