Evanescence Returns: New Album & Tour This Fall

After six years away from the industry, Evanescence promises to bring fans back to life again with a new album out later this year and a tour this fall.

The group announced their new album Synthesis on Monday, an orchestral compilation with fresh takes on the band’s most popular tracks, arranged by composer David Campbell.

“This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars,” front woman Amy Lee said of the album. “This will be our first time touring with an orchestra and I’m so excited to perform this way-really focus on the vocals, and the emotion and the story we’ve built over the years.”

A supporting tour, Synthesis Live, will launch on Oct. 14 in Las Vegas with VIP pre-sales starting today (Aug. 15) and general ticket sales on Friday, August 18th. VIP ticket buyers will receive songs ahead of the record’s release (date to-be-announced). One of those tracks will be an exclusive version of Evanescence’s most well-known hit, “Bring Me to Life.”


“I’m also really excited about the new material on the album. Besides the two new songs, there are some really beautiful instrumental in-between moments. The whole thing flows like a big, dynamic soundtrack,” Lee said in a statement on Evanescence.com.

Synthesis will be out later this Fall, just in time for the tour. For more information and tickets, visit the group’s official website here.
