After touring European festivals and shows in 2016 and early 2017, Evanescence unveiled their fourth album and most ambitious effort to date, Synthesis . Released fall 2017 via BMG, the group worked in the studio with producer, Will Hunt, and orchestra arranger and composer, David Campbell. Synthesis features two new Evanescence songs in addition to fan favorites re-imagined with a live orchestra and electronica. The record debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and was also the #4 Debut Top Album, #1 Debut Independent Album, #1 Current Rock Album, and #1 Debut Rock Album, not to mention receiving critical acclaim from media staples including Rolling Stone, Paste, Nylon, Loudwire, Kerrang!, and more.
The accompanying “Synthesis Live” tour launched in 2017 was augmented by Synthesis producer & live electronicist, Will Hunt, cellist and composer Dave Eggar, and conductor Susie Seiter. The band combined their intense performances and timeless songwriting with a gorgeous live orchestra, resulting in an ethereal concert experience. For the second leg of the tour in 2018, Evanescence teamed up with Billboard Award-winning electronic violinist, Lindsey Stirling, for a successful co-headliner that was dubbed one of Live Nation’s Top 10 tour of the summer.
