Rock act Evanescence will release it second Wind-Up album, "The Open Door," on Oct. 3. The set was recorded in Los Angeles earlier this year and produced by Dave Fortman, who was behind the boards for Evanescence's 2003 breakthrough, "Fallen."

That set has sold more than 6.5 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and spawned two top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, "My Immortal" and "Bring Me To Life."

"The making of this record has been really intense, but I've come out feeling purified," frontwoman Amy Lee says in a statement. "I've grown so much since 'Fallen,' and [guitarist] Terry [Balsamo] is the perfect writing partner -- I feel like I've been lifted up to a whole new level of inspiration and possibilities.
