And now they're taking another break.
I honestly wanted to ram my head into the nearest wall when I found out that after their (very successful) 2012 tour of their 2011 self titled album release Amy Lee announced that she and the gang were having cool down time. I mean, honestly? Their last break was 5 years long. 5 years. All I can say about this is that this next album had better blow me out of the water.
Good God, I don't understand why of all bands my favorite one needs chill time so much lately. Though it kills me to say this, I would rather they leave the industry right now with all of this great material than keep taking breaks and stuff. It's just not fair to the fans.
