Evanescence Announce New Tour To The Delight Of Emo ’90s Kids Everywhere

This is for all the angsty former teens out there! Rock band Evanescence is back together and headed on tour in America this fall.

The group made the announcement official yesterday (Aug. 22) with a post on their Facebook page.


The band made a splash back in the TRL days with their 2003 smash hit “Bring Me To Life” off their debut album Fallen. “Bring Me To Life” went on to be certified platinum by the RIAA and even won a Grammy Best Hard Rock Performance at the 46th annual Awards.

The group ultimately broke up in 2003, and the lineup of band members has changed many times with front woman Amy Lee being one of the only constants. The band has gotten back together periodically in 2012 and 2015 for sporadic performances, but this will be their first full fledged tour in more than 10 years.

“Just when I thought I was off the hard stuff! It’s going to feel amazing to step back on stage with the band this fall,” said Lee in a statement to Rolling Stone. “We had such a tight gel solidifying onstage the last few shows, and were enjoying it so much, we were all lamenting that it was so short and have been on the lookout for more opportunities to play live. ”

Tickets for the 16-date reunion tour go on sale this Friday, Aug. 26, and pre-sale will begin today, Tuesday, Aug. 23.
