Great deals on musical instruments

Evanescence are heading in a synth-pop direction.

The group is working on their third album - a follow up to their 2006 album 'The Open Door' - and singer and pianist Amy Lee said the sound of the album will more away from their established rock and classically influenced sound.

Amy told Spin.com: "It's going in an electro-pop direction -- there are no organic instruments. It's a Portishead or Massive Attack direction, and lyrically it's about moving on, but in a very non-confrontational, non-angry way."

Amy, 28, has also assembled a new line up for the group- consisting of guitarist Terry Balsamo, bass player Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt and a programmer who is also called Will Hunt - after all the original members left between 2003 and 2006 and formed rival band We Are The Fallen.

Amy said there will be elements of the turmoil she went through with the former members of the 'Bring Me To Life' rockers on the new record.

She added: "There's a lot of bull***t related to that band name for me, but I'm ready to move past it. I've realised that Evanescence is who I am.

"There are moments of, 'Hey, I'm over it and I'm good' and others of fun sarcasm like, 'Hey, everything's not the most dramatic thing in the world' on the new record.

"But it gets really, really, really deep in places, too. That's probably why it's been really hard to pick an album title. Lyrically, it's a more real version of myself. I'm saying things that I would've been afraid to say before."

Evanescence's third album is set for release in Autumn this year.
