It was all “a misunderstanding,” as Evanescence singer/main force Amy Lee says of the band’s Christian identity of yesteryear. I guarantee that if the Christian bookstore owners listened to some of those songs, they wouldn’t sell the CD.” Moody went even further.
Every ticket sold will come with a download of the new album, Synthesis when it is released later this fall.
As an added bonus, ticket buyers will also receive songs from the album prior to the album’s release date, beginning with a stunning new reworking of the band’s biggest hit, “Bring Me To Life,” which will be available for download to all ticket buyers as well as on streaming services and in digital stores beginning this Friday (August 18).
"We’ve just been working really hard for a long time on this record and we’re totally proud of it and excited to be touring again," she said as the listening session began.
At Liberty, though, she seemed excited about finally sharing the new music with the crowd of around 30.
Like the album, “Synthesis Live” will feature a reimagining of some of Evanescence’s best-loved songs with the spotlight on full orchestra, electronics combined with the band and Amy Lee’s virtuoso piano and voice. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars,” explains Amy Lee of Evanescence.
“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.normal.’” marks the first time the band releases an album without any lineup changes.Despite postponements (the original Steve Lillywhite sessions were scrapped and the quintet opted to work with producer Nick Raskulinecz of Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, and Rush fame), the release is a solid comeback — trading on Lee’s usual larger-than-life voice, crisp production, ferocious goth-metal guitars, strong melodies, and epic choruses.It is an album filled with clear singles and, in Lee’s opinion, the best in the band’s career (read our review next week).“This is the same band that was on tour for, and we all feel this is the strongest that we’ve been,” Lee said.This will be our first time touring with 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.
