The new Evanescence single, “Call Me When You’re Sober,” arrived on the Internet this week via AOL Music and is making its way to radio stations. A video for the track will debut on MTV on August 7th, with singer Amy Lee describing the clip as a “modern re-imagining” of the Little Red Riding Hood story. As for the song itself, Lee told us that it’s pretty self-explanatory: “It was inspired by a lot of people in my life towards the end of last year, and a lot of the drama that was going on. I don’t want to say anyone’s names particularly, because I feel like that’s really mean, but I think it’s something everyone can relate to. I think the title kind of says it all.”
“Call Me When You’re Sober” comes off the band’s second major label album, The Open Door, which is due out on October 3rd.
Lee broke up with Seether frontman Shaun Morgan last fall after a two-year relationship. Morgan pulled Seether off the road and checked himself into rehab last week for unspecified substance abuse issues.
The Open Door will feature the songwriting debut of former Cold guitarist Terry Balsamo, who replaced co-founder Ben Moody in late 2003.
Touring plans for The Open Door, as well as a replacement for recently departed bassist William Boyd, are yet to be unveiled.
