Evanescence’s Amy Lee, Queen of Goth Girl Style, Is Back With New Music

A particular experience that inspired Lee to make The Bitter Truth happened three years ago, when she lost her little brother, Robby. Dealing with that grief, and attempting to find hope through it, caused her to start writing again. “That made me zoom out on life and look at it again,” says Lee. “I had to rediscover who I am, because being his big sister was a huge part of my identity.” (Much of the album’s recording also happened during the pandemic, which only fueled its survival theme.) While The Bitter Truth deals with heavy emotions, its sound is surprisingly
