Evanescence Premiere “Imperfection” Music Video

Evanescence have premiered a new video for their song “Imperfection,” via NME. This is one of two new songs featured on their new album “Synthesis,” which is set to be released on November 10. That effort will mainly be composed of old songs that have been rebuilt and re-recorded using an orchestra and elements of electronica.

Amy Lee previously said the following about the song:

“For me, this is the most important song on the album. I struggled with the lyrics for a long time because there was a lifetime of work to live up to and I wasn’t sure what to say or how to be good enough. When it finally started pouring out of me, it was undeniable. I had no choice. It’s for all the people we’ve lost, all the people who we could lose, to suicide and depression.

I’m singing from the perspective of the person left behind, the person in the waiting room. It’s a plea to fight for your life, to stay. Don’t give into the fear- I have to tell myself that every day. Nobody is perfect. We are all imperfect, and it’s precisely those imperfections that make us who we are, and we have to embrace them because there’s so much beauty in those differences. Life is worth fighting for. You are worth fighting for.”

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.”
