Modern rockers Evanescence will visit Windsor on their Synthesis Live tour on Saturday, December 9 at The Colosseum. The Synthesis Live tour will feature a reimagining of Evanescence’s best loved songs with a spotlight on full orchestra and electronics.
“This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars,” explains lead singer 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. 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. 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.”
Formed in the mid-90’s, Evanescence first took the music industry by storm in 2003 releasing their first full-length album Fallen. Featuring chart-topping powerful, rock ballads “Bring Me To Life”, “My Immortal”, “Going Under” and “Everybody’s Fool”, the album went on to sell more than 17 million copies worldwide. In 2004, the band earned two Grammy awards for Best Hard Rock Performance and Best New Artist and in 2005 and 2008 were nominated for Best Pop Performance by a Group with Vocals for “My Immortal” and Best Hard Rock Performance for “Sweet Sacrifice”.
The award-winning group is currently in the studio finishing the new album through August with producers Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell. In addition to the re-imagined catalog songs, the forthcoming Synthesis will feature two new Evanescence songs.
2017 promises to be the biggest year for Evanescence yet, as their intense live performances and timeless songwriting combined with a powerful live orchestra and electronica will truly deliver a transcendent experience. For more information visit www.evanescence.com.
