Amy Lee has just revealed the special project that Evanescence has been working on for the past few months. On the band’s official Facebook page, the vocalist said this in a video update: “The new Evanescence album will be called Synthesis, because it is a synthesis — the combination, the contrast, the synergy between the organic and the synthetic, and also the past and the present. We’re taking our music, stripping out the big distorted guitars, stripping out the rock drums and replacing it with full orchestration in a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds. We’ve gone through our entire catalog of music and picked out the songs that are made to be heard in this way, and we’re sewing them together from the ground up with different tempos, with different parts, with intros and outros and segues and new pieces, and putting this all together like one big piece of music, like one big classical piece, or sort of like a soundtrack.”
Amy also added that the band will be heading out on tour with a full orchestra in support of the Synthesis record saying, “Get ready to put on your fancy clothes and experience Evanescence in a whole new way.”
