Early official announcements were made in regards to a followup to 2006's The Open Door where Amy herself had noted that she has begun writing material and the third album was expected sometime in 2010.
"We're currently working on new material that I'm extremely excited about. I believe that to make great music you have to give yourself the freedom to evolve. I don't see the point in making the same record twice, so I always want to challenge myself to make something better, stronger, and more interesting than before. That takes time, but it's worth the wait for me. Hopefully, it will be for the fans too. Look out for new music next year..."
In later posts on EvThreads as of 2009 she gave a vague indication of what new material for Evanescence could sound like and the album process.
"I don't want to give away too much about what it will sound like, because so much will change before the end, but its... not what you would expect. Its definitely not happy married music, but its not like I'm dying the whole time either. Its dark, sarcastic, fun, strange, familiar and very different at the same time."
"There's been a lot of writing going on this summer and I'm starting to get really excited. My good friend Will happens to also be a great producer, writer and programmer (lucky for me!) and we've been slaving away at some pretty interesting stuff lately... I'm not giving anything away just yet. Terry and I have been working together this week at my place just like old times and life is pretty good"
"We are officially going into the studio to record our third album next month. I'm beyond excited and will keep you up to date along the way!"
This album is going to be produced by the Grammy award winning producer Steve Lillywhite. 
On December 20, 2010, Amy Lee posted on EvThreads thanking all the birthday wishes she received from fans and saying that she has high hopes for 2011 and that she, Terry and Tim were making music "in the middle of nowhere on the Northern California coast" where there were no cellphones and the nearest town population was 300.
Since Evanescence's emergence on Twitter, various "Tweets" since have indicated the band have been writing and recording demos for the next album.
On November 22, 2009 the band released a short jamming session on the internet that contained a sample of one such demo.
On March 19, 2010 they released a short video of a recording session featuring a clip of a song they were currently recording.
On March 24, 2010 Amy released a piano piece of her recording a section of piano for a new song.
