EVANESCENCE return to Ontario Canada this Dec. in support of SYNTHESIS, their fourth studio album, that came out last month.. The group are in the middle of their “Synthesis Live” tour which hits Toronto on December 08 and Windsor on December 09. Like the album, The “Synthesis Live” will feature a re-imagining of some of EVANESCENCE’s best-loved songs with the spotlight on full orchestra and electronics.
“This is a total passion project for me. There are so many layers in our music, underneath the huge drums and guitars,” explains AMY LEE of EVANESCENCE. “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.”
Tickets can be purchased here and every ticket sold will come with a download of the new album, SYNTHESIS. Ticket buyers will receive songs, beginning with the stunning orchestral version of the band’s biggest hit, “Bring Me To Life,” which will be available immediately. A variety of VIP packages are available including a chance to meet and enjoy a champagne toast with the band, attend their soundcheck, and receive exclusive merch items.

The two-time, GRAMMY® Award-winning group’s album SYNTHESIS was produced Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell. In addition to the re-imagined catalog songs, SYNTHESIS features two new EVANESCENCE songs.
