Haunting piano riffs, a complete classical full orchestra and rap/rock vocals. Who can pull off this sound? Evanescence recently released a new track titled “Imperfection”. Amy Lee does not disappoint with her stunning vocals and ability to tell a story lyrically, like no other.
2017 has been a year in which we have lost many great musicians, such as Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell due to suicide. Subsequently, many musicians have committed their time and efforts to bring about awareness to aid in suicide prevention. Amy Lee of Evanescence wanted to help by writing the song “Imperfection”.
“The more you try to fight it. The more you try to hide it. The more infected, rejected, you feel alone inside it. You know you can’t deny it. The world’s a little more fucked up everyday.” Amy Lee explained in an interview that the song is about suicide and depression experienced by family and friends of the affected. She explains that we have to remind everyone that no one is perfect. She went on to explain, “We are all imperfect, and it’s precisely those imperfections that make us who we are, and we have to embrace them because there’s so much beauty in those differences. Life is worth fighting for. You are worth fighting for.”
“Imperfection” will be on the new album, Synthesis which is scheduled to be released on November 10th. They will promote their new album with a tour throughout the United States and Canada that kicks off on October 14th.
