Evanescence Amp Up the Drama with Orchestra @ LA’s Greek Theatre

Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee made the leap from goth-rocker to opera diva last night, as she and the band led a 20-piece orchestra through a sold-out performance at the Greek Theatre Sunday night, previewing the group’s fourth album, “Synthesis,” which comes out November 10.

Both the concert and the album — Evanescence’s first since its self-titled 2011 effort — offer a reimagining of the group’s catalog with a full symphony orchestra, arranged by none other than Beck’s father, veteran arranger David Campbell, whose collaboration with the band dates back to its first album. The concert was the second of Evanescence’s current “Synthesis Live” tour, as they team up with a different symphony orchestra (under the direction of conductor Susie Seiter) in each city for an 80-minute, 18-song set.

Looking more like Maria Callas than Grace Slick in a billowing floor-length black gown with a plunging neckline, Lee firmly re-establishes herself as one of rock’s pre-eminent vocalists, exhibiting an impressive range that still packs a wallop, this time cutting through a full orchestra. Although the set includes just two new songs (the single “Imperfection” and the encore, “Speak to Me,” performed solo by Lee for the film “Voice From the Stone” earlier this year), there is also “Hi Lo” (a 10-year-old song recorded for the first time on the new album) and a pair of newly composed orchestral/piano interludes. Still, she and the ensemble turn the familiar material — including crowd favorites like the Grammy-winning “Bring Me to Life,” “My Immortal,” “Lithium” and “Your Star” — into full-throttle, wide-screen epics, its themes of loss, guilt and self-doubt enlarged to tragedy on the Greek proscenium.

Evanescence To Tour Australia In 2018

Evanescence have confirmed an Australian tour for next year off the back of the announcement of their new album Synthesis. A representative for the band’s label, Sony Music, has also confirmed to Music Feeds that the band will tour Australia in “early 2018”.

Evanescence have not toured the country since 2012 so this comes as an exciting announcement to all those in Australia.

“We’re taking our music, stripping out the big distorted guitars, stripping out the rock drums and replacing it with full orchestration in a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds,” Lee said about the album in a video posted to Facebook.

Amy Lee also announced that the Evanescence will be touring the record with a full orchestra. While it will mostly comprise of re-worked material, there will also be two new songs on the record including their recent single ‘Imperfection’.

Exact Aussie tour dates haven’t been announced yet but given the tour confirmation, a full announcement is imminent. Synthesis is set to release November 10th.
