Launch Radio Networks reports: EVANESCENCE has officially picked "Call Me When You're Sober" as the first single from its upcoming new album, "The Open Door". The song will arrive at radio stations around August 7, while the new CD hits the streets on October 3. The band's second major label offering, "The Open Door" will follow up 2003's six-million-selling "Fallen". When asked to describe the sound of the new disc, singer Amy Lee told Launch it was hard to explain. "It's different than the last album, but it's still EVANESCENCE. I think the fans are really gonna love it. I'm a fan, I love this band, I wouldn't be doing it if I wouldn't love it, and I love it, so I guess that's sort of my gauge for everything. But it's different, it's kind of fun and sexy, but it's still, like, dark and, like, really epic at times."
EVANESCENCE guitarist Terry Balsamo suffered a stroke last November during the making of the record, but Lee says he has made a "miraculous" recovery.
Balsamo replaced founding member Ben Moody in late 2003.
EVANESCENCE also sued its former manager on grounds of professional negligence and sexual assault, among other claims.
Touring plans for "The Open Door" are yet to be announced.
