Her fanbase is fading. All she has now is a couple of bootlickers on Instagram and 5 or 6 real active fans on Secret Stocking Society. Honestly, it's so sad. I always thought EA has a great artistic potential but I guess she's a bit insecure about her own creations so she chooses to lay on another's ideas. I know a few artists who prefers to write music based on concepts than personal moments, like Kate Bush, but Emilie's is extremely vague and it seems like she's the one who doesn't want to leave the asylum than the asylum's the one that doesn't let people out.
so true, but i think emilie is stopping with her old career just because she is living a new life. she said herself on instagram that she is not that little red haired angry girl anymore. she is a woman now and probably music is not the only instrument she needs to express herself anymore. but yes it's sad. she is a true artist and she would be able to start a new gothic era if she only would want to. she was so powerful back in the days. everything about her was amazing: songs, lyrics, outfits, live shows. but now it seems like it's all over. very sad. her albums will forever remain masterpieces <3
i agree. she seems happier than before and i appreciate that a lot. i just wished she would direct this new phase of hers to another things than relying her career only on the Asylum. c'mon, she's smart enough to know that people are bored of the asylum concept, but instead of moving on naturally to another path, she's holding the asylum thightly. If you analyse her music catalog, she ALWAYS took inspiration from another artists: she tried to be something in between tori amos and fione apple during enchant, heavily influences of metal-shakespearian during opheliac, but i guess when she found out the asylum concept, she kinda admited that as something being her pure creation, i mean, something only she came up it. I guess some of her hardcore fans would be disappointed if she abandoned the asylum to try new things but in a matter of fact she doesn't have many of the anymore :/
yes she should like...close the 'asylum era' and starting a new one. that doesn't necessary mean deleting the asylum, just leave it behind and turn on the new page and starting a new chapter. anyway, in the end i truly hope she will keep making art, writing, inspiring people. she was the one who was there in my life when i needed someone. i love her forever
I remember becoming fairly depressed when flag came out just since it was so obvious that she'd wait another 5 year to release new material and all we got was a soundtrack to a musical that won't exist and like 3 actual songs lmao
I would even be happy if she only recorded a song that's like 2 minutes long. Just. Release. Something. Dammit. Always hate it when I have to wait 5 years or longer for something new from my favourite artists. :/ Unless they're sick or dead or in prison etc, then it's not strange ofc lol. Otherwise I don't get it.
Tbh I don't think she is going to make new music anymore, or at least not for another five years or so. I follow her on social media and as far as I know, she hasn't been doing anything music-related for a couple of years now. Hell, I don't even know when she last played her violin. I think she was planning to do a musical or something but other than that she is currently pretty much just making new merch such as clothing, colouring books and calendars, and promoting her book.
Very strange comment, indeed. Emilie Autumn is quite the musician, so you'd be crazy to not let her music touch you because you perceive her fanbase as purely female. That being said: WE NEED NEW MUSIC!
