The Bitter Truth, Evanescence’s first album of original music in a decade, is out now on Sony Music Australia.
A return to the band’s heavy roots, The Bitter Truth is a reflection of both the personal tragedies in the band members’ own lives (the unexpected passing of frontwoman Amy Lee’s brother, the sudden loss of a child by bassist Tim McCord) and the collective tragedies of the planet amidst racial inequality, COVID, and economic upheaval.
But, despite the darkness and bitterness of life, the album’s resounding message is one of light: Pushing through is better than giving up.

The quarantine-creation of the album is also chronicled in a new documentary, Evanescence: Embracing The Bitter Truth, directed by Adam Jones and out now via The Coda Collection, the music-centric streaming channel on Amazon Prime Video.
