Pianist and lead vocalist Amy Lee took an active role in the series, overseeing the creative direction of the stories and artwork.
Arkansas band Evanescence have announced a five-volume graphic novel series, titled Echoes From the Void.
The fantasy anthology - written by Carrie Lee South and Blake Northcott, illustrated by Abigail Larson and Kelly McKernan — features stories based on themes from the band’s songs.
The title is inspired by 'Better Without You' and recent single 'Wasted on You', which appear on the rock outfit's upcoming fifth LP, The Bitter Truth.
“I am so excited about this project series,” Evanescence frontwoman and co-founder Amy Lee said of the anthology, which is part of Incendium’s OPUS imprint.
“The possibilities are endless. Collaborating across art forms like this is so unique, and it’s been fascinating to see how many different lives a song can have, like alternate realities. I look forward to working on this throughout the year and am so honoured to break open this new world for our music.”
The debut printing of each issue will be sold as a limited-edition comic book, limited to 3,000 copies apiece. The first is available to pre-order now and, according to the Incendium site, will ship in June. A limited-edition glow-in-the-dark lithograph is also available to pre-order.
The Bitter Truth is due to arrive on March 26th, and marks the first full LP of new material since their self-titled 2011 album.
It’s a dream for us too! Thanks for sharing your beautiful art with us🤘❤️🤘 https://t.co/UK445Jr4os
