Evanescence are finally set to make a long overdue return to Australia.
Evanescence, renowned for their classically influenced haunting, hammering hard rock sound, beautifully lead by Amy Lee's wrenching vocals ranging from delicate to dramatic, primal to passionate. Piano-led broodings swell at pace upon intricate, hammering guitars, creating stunning hard-driving tunes.
Their unique sound has lead to combined album sales nearing 25 million worldwide. Australian sales alone exceed 600,000.
Global success arrived for Evanescence with the delivery of their 2003 debut album 'Fallen', featuring the epic #1 single 'Bring Me To Life' and universal hit 'My Immortal'. The album earned the band two prestigious Grammy Awards and cultivated international acclaim.
'The Open Door' was the second instalment from Evanescence. Housing massive hit singles 'Call Me When You're Sober' and 'Lithium', the hugely successful album hitting #1 on the ARIA album chart.
In 2010 Evanescence returned to the studio, resulting in the October 2011 release of their eponymous, long awaited third studio album (through Wind Up/EMI). Spearheaded by the single 'What You Want', the album hit #1 in the US Billboard charts and debuted at the top of charts around the world.
"This record is so geared for live shows," Lee said. "We were thinking about playing live the whole time we were writing it."
"I can't describe how great it feels to have their support. I love so much meeting them before and after the show. If feels like they're growing with us," Lee continued. "We're so happy to be back."
