Evanescence Stream New Orchestral Version Of “Bring Me To Life”

Evanescence have premiered a new orchestral version of “Bring Me To Life.” This version of the song is from their new album “Synthesis,” which is set to be released this fall. That effort will be composed of two new songs as well as old songs that have been rebuilt and re-recorded using an orchestra and elements of electronica.

Amy Lee told Rolling Stone the following:

“‘Bring Me To Life‘ is new to me again after 15 years. It’s difficult to explain how good that makes me feel. Having the chance to incorporate things I’ve heard in my head throughout that long period of time, nuances from the way I sing it live, just pouring the weight and perspective of the life I’ve lived now back into that root – it’s pure satisfaction.”

Evanescence Announce “Synthesis Live” North American Tour

Evanescence have announced a North American tour in support of their new album “Synthesis,” which is set to be released this fall. That effort will be composed of two new songs as well as old songs that have been rebuilt and re-recorded using an orchestra and elements of electronica. The tour will see the band touring with an orchestra, and fans who buy tickets will receive a free download of the album. More info can be found HERE.

Amy Lee said the following:

“This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars. 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.”

Watch Evanescence Perform New Song “Take Cover” Live

Evanescence have been performing a new song titled “Take Cover” during their recent shows. Check out some fan-filmed footage of the band playing it in Dallas, TX below:

Amy Lee told TeamRock the following:

“We are playing a new song live right now. We got together for rehearsals and we really focused this tour on the fans and the history of the band.

“Kind of in light of this whole [Ultimate Collection] box set (out December 9) theme, we wanted to do everything that the fans want and not just what we felt like doing. It has been so fulfilling and so fun.

“When we got together the guys were really strongly supportive of it, we had a song in the bank. And we were like, ‘You know what the fans would really love is a new song. That’s all they ever ask for.’

“So we knocked the dust off an old song called Take Cover that we had in the bank for a while and we loved it. It’s one of our favourite moments every night on the tour.

“I think they like it a lot. I posted the lyrics on Facebook and now I get at least five people in the front row mouthing along, which is extra fun.”

She also added the following about the possibility of more new music:

“We’re definitely in a creative mindset. We’re playing the best that this band has ever played.

“Everyone is healthy and happy and loves being here and likes working together. It sounds like maybe that shouldn’t be so rare, but it really is.

“So we’re looking for opportunities to work together more and we want to get creative. We’re definitely in that new chapter moment where the wheels are turning.”
