Many thanks to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Preston Jones for reading Rolling Stone news items about Evanescence so we don't have to, because, as Jones notes today, the band is currently recording a new album in New York and the bulk of the songs it's laying down today came from a writing session with DFW's own Will Hunt, who in the past has worked with The Burning Hotels and Odis.
Makes sense, I guess: According to Rolling Stone, the new disc from the hard rock band is influence by the likes of MGMT and new wavers. Apparently it's all outer-space themed or something (seriously). So there you go.
