Evanescence going on ‘Synthesis Live’ tour

In support of their upcoming new full-length album and fourth overall LP titled Synthesis, alt rock favorites Evanescence will embark on a headlining trek of the U.S. this fall.

Dubbed the ‘Synthesis Live’ tour, the 28-city journey kicks off in Las Vegas mid-October and eventually makes its way to our area for a giant show at the decorative Kings Theatre in Brooklyn on November 10 [TIX go on sale on 8/18]

As per the official announcement:

Like the album, “Synthesis Live” will feature a reimagining of some of Evanescence’s best-loved songs with the spotlight on full orchestra, electronics combined with the band and Amy Lee’s virtuoso piano and voice.

Here’s more info via Evanescence singer Amy Lee:

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.
