After touring European festivals and shows in 2016 and early 2017, EVANESCENCE unveiled its fourth album and most ambitious effort to date, “Synthesis”. Released fall 2017 via BMG, the LP saw EVANESCENCE working 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 accompanying “Synthesis Live” tour launched in 2017 was augmented by “Synthesis” producer and live electronicist Will Hunt, cellist and composer Dave Eggar, and conductor Susie Seiter. The band combined its 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 tours of the summer. EVANESCENCE also released its new concert film “Synthesis Live” in October 2018, capturing the group’s incredible musicality.
