Along with Lee’s financial issues with Wind-up, the singer apparently claimed the record label attempted to sabotage the band by appointing Evanescence under-qualified promoters who lacked useful ideas. Evanescence have sold over 25 million albums throughout their career, and now it appears that Lee and the band are free from any contracts as far as future recording plans go.
Today, for the first time in 13 years, I am a free and independent artist. I have wanted this for so long and I am so happy. CHEERS!— Amy Lee (@AmyLeeEV) March 19, 2014
Amy Lee has remained quiet since the initial announcement of the lawsuit, but in a pair of Twitter posts, the Evanescence frontwoman celebrated her freedom:
.@gayllaghers "free from your record deal or free from evanescence?" Free from my record deal. I'm free to do anything, Ev included— Amy Lee (@AmyLeeEV) March 19, 2014
In a second tweet answering a fan’s question, Lee revealed that both she and Evanescence are free agents:
That’s not the only big news Amy Lee is celebrating. Back in January, the singer shared the happy news that she is pregnant with her first child with husband Josh Hartzler.
