While in New York City, Evanescence’s Amy Lee sat down with Paste Music for a personal Q&A session at Steinway Hall before venturing off on their Synthesis Live tour on October 14th.
When asked to describe the concept behind Synthesis, Lee said, “This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars.” She went on to say, “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.”
Their upcoming Synthesis album and tour features a modern reworking of some of their classic songs with a full orchestra and electronica elements. The album will also include two brand new Evanescence songs, one of which is the newly released “Imperfection.”
