Evanescence to Live Stream Final 2016 Performance

Evanescence are winding down their 2016 touring activity, but will make sure that fans everywhere will get a chance to see their final date. The band will be playing the Paramount in Huntington, N.Y. Wednesday night (Nov. 23) and they’ll be teaming up with Live Nation to stream the show online.

Fans will be able to catch the action from the Paramount beginning at 9PM ET via Live Nation TV on Facebook, Live Nation’s YouTube channel and at LiveNation.com.

The band has been touring in the lead up to the release of the band’s massive vinyl box set. The Ultimate Collection is due to arrive Dec. 9 via Concord / Bicycle. Included are six LPs that span their four studio albums (The Open Door requires two LPs) and a rarities set titled The Lost Whispers.

Evanescence’s sets have included a new song called “Take Cover.” Singer Amy Lee told us before the tour started that she was looking forward to the run, explaining, “I’m most looking forward to the things we haven’t done yet, so I’m not gonna tell you exactly what they are, but there’s a couple of songs that are almost just for me. One of them is ‘The Change.’ It’s not our most famous song by any means, it wasn’t even a single and it’s just one of my favorite songs we’ve done as a band and there’s just something about the way I can just release my mind singing it. There’s no lyrics in the bulk of the chorus, I love it; it just makes me feel so inside the music.”

As for Evanescence’s future, Lee has stated that there will eventually be new music, but that it will come in its own time.

Evanescence Bring New Song ‘Take Cover’ to the Stage

Though Amy Lee has a newly released children’s album and there has been no official word on a new Evanescence album as of yet, fans are getting a taste of new music at the band’s recent shows. They’ve got a song called “Take Cover” that they’ve added to the set list.

The song is a more electronic-based track, alternative between moments of rhythmic swaying verses and a more driving anthemic chorus. You can check out a fan-shot performance of the song from a recent show in Dallas in the player above.

Lee recently told Team Rock that the idea to add a new song to the set came as they began to explore the music for their upcoming vinyl box set, The Ultimate Collection, which is due on Dec. 9. She explains, “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 box set 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.”

She adds, “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 favorite 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.”
