publish date: 2017-05-10
Evanescence announced a new album called Synthesis on Wednesday (May 10) that will reimagine some of the band's past catalog with full orchestration and electronic backing.
Singer and pianist Amy Lee revealed and explained the project to fans in a Facebook video, saying they landed on the title because "it is the synthesis, the combination, the contrast, the synergy between the organic and the synthetic, also the past and present."
She continued, "This album is about orchestra and electronica. We're taking our music, stripping out the big distorted guitars, stripping out the rock drums and replacing it with full orchestration and a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds."
