Evanescence Announces “Synthesis Live” Tour, “Bring Me To Life” Out Friday

Evanescence promised an exciting announcement, and today they delivered. We know the band has been recording their new album, Synthesis, since spring. It’s a reimagining of Evanescence songs we know and love, plus two brand new songs. The album is due out this fall. Now we know a little more: The band will be embarking on the “Synthesis Live” tour soon!


Today, Evanescence shared the tour dates for their North American “Synthesis Live” tour. The tour kicks off in Las Vegas on October 14th and finishes on December 19th in Portland, Oregon. Fans may also be interested in the meet-and-greet packages available. Tickets go on sale this Friday, though VIP pre-sales start tomorrow, August 15th. All ticket sales will come with a digital download of Synthesis upon its release date, as well as first listens of select songs leading up to that date.

The first song we’ll get to hear from Synthesis is a re-worked version of their hit, “Bring Me To Life.” The new recording will be out this Friday, August 18th. Let’s all revisit this classic ahead of its new release:

The band should be done recording Synthesis in the next few weeks. The album is expected out this fall, most likely by the time the tour kicks off in mid-October.

Synthesis will be the band’s first album in six years. Their next album of all-original material should come out in 2018. Evanescence’s last full album, 2011’s Evanescence, produced singles like “What You Want” and “My Heart Is Broken”. After touring for that album, the band went on hiatus.

Frontwoman Amy Lee had a son with her husband and pursued a number of music projects without the band. In 2014, she released a solo album called Aftermath, comprised of music she had written for the independent film War Story. Late in 2015, she shared four covers of well-known songs before releasing them as an EP the following January. In September 2016, Amy released a second solo album, this time made up of children’s music. Called Dream Too Much, it included some original songs mixed with covers. In early 2017, Amy released an English-language cover of an Italian song called “Love Exists,” followed by an original song called “Speak To Me” for the new film Voice From The Stone. Amy has also composed a new song “Through Your Eyes” for the new film Blind.

Evanescence, meanwhile, had some significant internal changes. The band left Wind-up Records, making them independent for the first time in over a decade. Guitarist Terry Balsamo left the band in 2015, and was replaced by Jen Majura. In early 2017, the band released a vinyl boxset of all their albums – including Origin and a collection of previously released bonus tracks and two new recordings.

Synthesis will be out this fall. Stay tuned for announcements about the tracklisting and exact release date. Catch up on all we know about the album so far. Keep checking back here for all the latest on Synthesis and the band’s next album.
