EVANESCENCE’S AMY LEE
MAKES HER FILM SCORE DEBUT WITH “AFTERMATH”
Soundtrack to “War Story” Is Available Today
at Amazon and iTunes
LOS ANGELES, CA (Monday, August 25, 2014) — Aftermath, music from and inspired by the independent film “War Story,” represents a plethora of “firsts” for Amy Lee, founder/ vocalist/songwriter for the multi-Platinum rock band Evanescence. It marks her most significant entree to date into the world of film scoring, her first album release since 2011’s Evanescence self-titled album, the first time she’s worked on a project of her original material that wasn’t a full-blown, high-budget major production, and it represents an entirely new writing process. Aftermath was a collaboration between Lee, Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer, and while the music on it may be a 180-degree turn from what Evanescence fans have come to expect, it has Amy Lee’s fingerprints all over it. Aftermath is available digitally today, Monday, August 25 viaAmazon.com and iTunes (Ingrooves).
Today’s the day! Get Amy’s new album & soundtrack to War Story on iTunes and Amazon.

“More Q and A with me on AFTERMATH with James Montgomery and Rolling Stone!” -Amy
“Making music for War Story was a truly liberating creative experience. We were being guided by an artist (director, Mark Jackson), who was not only open to, but encouraged us to think outside the box and go with our inspirations. It was really cool and different to have a mission for a scene— to be guided by what feelings we needed to evoke to illustrate the characters and situations. Sometimes we would end up with things that were very different from the original vision, and sometimes that would inspire Mark and he would fall in love with the left turn. We also ended up spinning off into creative tangents and getting extra music that didn’t end up in the film and that’s a big part of why we really wanted to make this album. There was so much extra music that we really loved and felt deserved to be finished out and shared. This body of work is a collection of our favorite songs and instrumental score pieces that we’re created over the last year while working on War Story.” -Amy
