Evanescence announce upcoming album ‘Synthesis’

This news is bringing us to life.

Evanescence’s frontwoman Amy Lee has just unveiled details regarding the unique project the band has been working on over the course of the last few months.

“This album is about orchestra and electronica,” the singer shared in an announcement video. “We’re taking our music, stripping out the big distorted guitars, stripping out the rock drums and replacing it with full orchestration and a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds.”

The album, titled Synthesis, received its name “because it is a synthesis. The combination – the contrast, the synergy between the organic and the synthetic, and also the past and the present,” she continued.

Synthesis is the latest from the band in six years. Evanescence also revealed a tour will follow, supporting the record’s release. They hit the road beginning this fall, equipped with a complete orchestra.
