In two seperate interviews with AOL's BUILD series in 2016 and 2017, Amy Lee not only hinted about Synthesis, but also that a new album after that is planned and that they will be active throughout the next few years. During a press conference in Ecuador, Amy said that the band plan to "make another full, true Evanescence album after [Synthesis]".
When the band were interviewed in Finland in June 2017, they were asked if they had any new music for the next "completely new" Evanescence album, to which Amy and Tim responded:
|Amy: Yeah, we have a couple of ideas already started that I think we'll go towards that, yes. We've had a couple of songs sort of in the bank since, I don't know, the last go-around. We had a lot of songs that didn't make it on the last album, so there's a couple there to kind of draw from. And in addition to that, whilst writing for [Synthesis], as there are some various new songs on it, some of them weren't the right fit stylistically, but I think they're really good, so I think that might be the next thing.
Tim: We're also always musically making things individually all the time. So by the time we get together to do the next one, we're going to have a big head start with a pile of stuff to go through and work out.
Amy: Yeah, you are working on something right now, right? In the hotel room?
Tim: I've got like ten things going on right now.
In Kerrang! Magazine issue K!1694 which was released on October 24, 2017, Amy said that the band will "expect" to head in to the studio later in 2018:
|I'd expect we'll be heading into the studio later next year. I know we've got a good handful of songs to start with already. At that, Synthesis isn't any indication of where we're going. I like contrast. In my life I don't go for that much drama, so I wanted to play this up and really go crazy with the orchestra. But, if anything, this could be the opposite of what the next album might sound like. It might be really nice to go raw on the next album, to [focus on] the band again.|
When Will Hunt was interviewed by Walls of Sound in Australia in February 2018, he mentioned how collaborating for Synthesis has helped the band "broaden [their] horizons" for the next record.
|I think that Synthesis has certainly been a different process to that record, but ultimately what I’m excited about is the next one. What this one has done is broadened our horizons. Added different colours to our palette, and we’re all aware of and are able to use those colours, because we’ve all been involved in making this. One of the coolest parts of that is for the next record, it's opened up a lot of different doors that we maybe wouldn't have explored.|
In Kerrang! Magazine issue K!1717 which was released on April 11, 2018, Amy Lee said that there is no official timeline for Evanescence to begin recording their fifth studio album, but confirmed that it is still planned for the future.
In an interview with Loudwire which was published on August 14, 2018, Amy confirmed that a brand new Evanescence album will be the next project after the band have taken a break from concluding their Synthesis Live tour. She said that the band will get together to begin writing some time in 2019.
|We're going to take a little bit of time, but the next thing we're going to focus on creatively is just the next full Evanescence album. That's the plan. I just like to keep us finishing this tour a little open-ended, like let's all just breathe through the end of the year, and then we'll start writing next year for the next thing.
I think as a band, we're all in a really good place with each other. I've been with the guys -- Will, Troy and Tim -- now for over a decade. Jen's the new kid on the block but she brings a lot of positivity and energy to the group and we're excited for her to be with us. We're all happy together and we make a great team and we're excited to make more music together.
When Amy Lee and Lindsey Stirling were asked what's coming up in the future, Amy mentioned how she's ready to rock again.
|It’s been good for me to be able to continue with Evanescence in a way that’s not the way we always have, because I don’t feel burnt out on rock. I just become what I’m doing when I make an album and it’s such a consuming experience – writing, creating, recording the album and then going on tour for the album for a year or more. By the time you finish that whole cycle, for me personally, usually I’m just tired of any heavy music. I just need a break. You get to a point where it’s like “I need something else.
But this time is different.
I feel inspired, and I’m kind of ready to rock because it hasn’t been that style so much. It’s in there but it’s not the same, so I don’t feel like I need to run away like I sometimes do at the end of our tours. So I don’t know exactly how it’s going to inspire the next album. Actually I think it could be a little bit of the opposite. I think we’re all ready to let the pendulum swing the other way.
In Kerrang! Magazine issue 1744 that was released on October 17, 2018, Amy mentioned how she's working on a collaboration idea, but she's not specified if it's for solo work or for the next Evanescence album.
