Evanescence: gothic-rockers return with new album and UK tour dates in spring 2018, including London, Manchester and Glasgow
A winning combination of contemporary rock and classical influences made Evanescence one of the most recognisable sounds of the millenium. Their debut album Fallen (released in 2003, and including tracks "Bring Me To Life", "Going Under" and "My Immortal") sold 17 million copies worldwide; helped the band win two Grammy awards; and finished sixth on 2008's "Top Bestselling Albums of the Last 10 Years" list. By their own stratospheric standards, the band's second studio album – The Open Door – was less popular; but still a huge commerical success by industry standards, selling more than five million copies worldwide.
After a five year hiatus since their self-titled third album Amy Lee and co. are bouncing back with a remix album and tour in March 2018 ahead of their fourth album Synthesis. The band will kick off their six show tour with two nights at London's Royal Festival Hall on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 March, before carrying on to Manchester, Nottingham and Glasgow and finishing up at Sheffield's City Hall. What's more, Evanescence will be joined on tour by a full orchestra; making for a bigger, more epic sound than ever before.

Evanescence: they're back, and with a bigger, more operatic sound than ever
Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, founding members Amy Lee and Ben Moody met at a summer youth camp. After Moody overheard Lee playing the piano and singing, he asked her to join him in forming a band and the seeds were sown for a musical phenomenon. The duo began writing and performing together soon after, attracting the attention of producer Pete Matthews, who introduced them to a representative from Wind-up Records.
Joined by bassist Will Boyd, guitarist John LeCompt and drummer Rocky Gray, the group began working on their debut album. Tracks "Bring Me To Life" and "My Immortal" were featured on the soundtrack to the film Daredevil and their popularity generated significant buzz for the release of Fallen in 2003. After a number of line-up changes, an eponymously titled third album was released at the end of 2011, before the band took a five year hiatus.
Evanescence decided to make their much-anticipated return to the stage at Japan's Ozzfest in April 2015, before a popular US tour served as proof that demand for the band was still high. Singer Amy Lee announced in August that Synthesis was in its final stages of recording and that it will be released in November 2017.
