Evanescence leave record label

2014-03-19 by Christopher Geriak | 26 Comments
As many Evanescence fans have known, the band has been facing a lawsuit with their record
label Wind-Up Records, demanding $1.5 million on royalties. Today, Amy Lee just recently
posted on Facebook this statement:

Quote:
"Today, for the first time in 13 years, I am a free and independent artist. I have
wanted this for so long and I am so happy. CHEERS!"
According to many fans, this means that Evanescence has finally parted their ways with the
label, making them now an official independent artist.

However, no other current information has been released as of now.

The Open Door still remains the band's most underrated and best work. Maybe if their next album is better than the self-titled, Ev will be an "even-albums" band.

I really liked Fallen, never really cared about the rest of their albums, though What You Want is a pretty good track.

Digging: Devin Townsend Project - Transcendence

I liked The Open Door. It was a really discrete album, less commercial and more like Amy Lee just doing what she wanted. I always thought she'd be better off as solo musician.

Wait, so I know that Amy Lee is a fairly creative woman, but if what they've released is the result of being held back by their label, then I'm really curious as to what she's capable of, artistically speaking.

lol, that means that their record label was holding them back, trying to set boundaries on what they
had envisioned ?
if that's the case, its really pretentious

"They can now release the avant-jazz album they always dreamed of"

hahaha

who said they're relevant?

edit:
@giantspeck: What tells you Amy Lee is creative, or envisioned something better that "WAKE ME UP INSIDE" when writing any of their albums?
