Evanescence announces fall 'Synthesis' Tour
Evanescence has announced a tour in support of its upcoming album, Synthesis, which will begin on October 14th in Las Vegas and will wind down on December 19th in Portland, Oregon. Like the LP, the trek will feature a "reimagining" of some of Evanescence's best-loved songs through the use of a full orchestra and electronics combined with the band and the voice of frontperson Amy Lee.
Lee said about the road show, "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. 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 added about the Synthesis album, "I've always wanted to shine a light on some of the gorgeous David Campbell arrangements and programming elements in our songs, and that idea snowballed into completely re-doing them with full orchestra, not just strings, elaborate programming and experimentation."
- Pre-sales for the tour begin on Wednesday (August 16th) at 10:00 a.m. local time, with general ticket sale starting on Friday (August 18th), also at 10:00 a.m. local time.
- Every ticket sold will come with a download of the Synthesis album -- which also contains two new songs -- when it is released later this fall.
