New Evanescence Video Available Online

EVANESCENCE's video for its new single, "Call Me When You're Sober", is available for viewing at YouTube.com. According to MTV.com, the clip features singer Amy Lee wearing a red satin cape and sitting at an antiquated vanity. A young man — with crystal blue eyes and scruffy, overgrown facial hair and sideburns — approaches her from behind, caressing her shoulders and softly kissing her neck as she tries to rebuff his advances.

"The song is so literal, the lyrics and everything — I mean, obviously, just by the title — that we felt like the video would have the freedom to go in a less literal direction," she explained. "So it's [a modern re-imagining of] Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf and sort of a more cool, superhero, rock and roll Little Red Riding Hood."

The song's subject matter, Lee said, involves "something that everyone's been through" — the frustration of "dealing with someone with an addiction, which is really hard, especially when you love someone."

EVANESCENCE's new album, "The Open Door", is scheduled for release on October 3 via Wind-Up Records.

golly where to start....

The part where she flies was funny, beat that peter pan....

Uhm her faces is a perfect sphere, it scares me a little.

I guess the band decided "if it aint broke don't fix it" with the guitar sound which is STILL waaaayyy to much like Linkin Park...

Goth wanna be kiddies, if you want something decent pick up Lacuna Coil, if you want something good try Draconian, cus Evanescence is 100% pure c(K)orn.
