Evanescence’s Amy Lee: ‘Musical Experimentation in a Label-Free Zone is So Healthy’
Vocalist and composer Amy Lee tells Rolling Stone India that releasing “Wasted On You” – whose music video premiered in the country exclusively on Vh1 India on April 23rd – was a “little bit of a different feeling” considering they can’t throw a band party “like we normally would.” Over an email interview, the band’s founding member adds, “But in this midst of this strange time, it’s such a salve to the feeling of being stuck that we are all going through right now, to be able to create and put out our art.
