Cover shot – EVANESCENCE
Multiple Grammy award winning American rockers EVANESCENCE will be returning to Australia next week hitting all major cities to celebrate 20 years of Fallen performing highlights of the album and their career spanning set. Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth shows are sold out with very limited tickets still available for Sydney and Melbourne. These tickets won’t last long!
Joining them as special guests on all dates are beloved alt-rockers The Beautiful Monument. 2023 has already been an exciting year for The Beautiful Monument with the release of two brand new singles, Hellbound and Misery alongside a huge national headline tour and supporting Escape The Fate. They have previously toured alongside Tonight Alive, Architects, In Hearts Wake, I Prevail, Alpha Wolf and Void Of Vision and have performed at Download Festival, Unify Gathering in 2018 and 2020, Good Things Festival in 2019, Knight & Day Festival and Alpha Wolf’s curated festival, CVLT FEST in 2022.
Starting life when EVANESCENCE vocalist Amy Lee and co-founder Ben Moody began writing and recording songs in the mid 90s, 2003’s Fallen would go on to score five nominations at the 2004 Grammy Awards, winning Best Hard Rock Performance and Best New Artist, with the album’s symphonic and delicate ballad My Immortal also scoring an additional nomination at the Grammy Awards the following year.
Hitting the top 10 charts in multiple countries upon its release, including Australia and a #1 in the UK, Fallen sold 10 million copies in the US alone, with over 17 million copies sold worldwide and officially reaching diamond certification in late 2022.
Fallen’s lush and gloomy beauty memorably blended symphonic elements with goth, rock, metal and hooks aplenty, while also garnering significant attention for lead singles Bring Me to Life, Going Under, My Immortal and Everybody’s Fool. And while the album has gone on to be included in the likes of Rolling Stone’s ‘The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time’ and praise lauded for Lee’s macabre tinge that set the band apart from their nu metal contemporaries at the time, Fallen also ultimately set the scene for a long-term legacy from the Arkansas-hailing group, who are now in command of five studio albums including 2021’s powerful and intimate outing The Bitter Truth which debuted at #3 on the ARIA chart, which marked the band’s highest debut in 15 years.
Following multiple worldwide tours, The Open Door followed Fallen’s footsteps, going on to sell more than five million copies, before the self-titled Evanescence in 2011 debuted at #1 on the ARIA album chart and Billboard Chart. EVANESCENCE went down both very new and familiar paths for their fourth and most ambitious release to date, Synthesis, in 2017 alongside a worldwide Synthesis Live tour combining their intense live performances and timeless songwriting with a powerful live orchestra, before unveiling The Bitter Truth in 2021, hitting the top 10 of multiple international album charts and marking itself on multiple Best of 2021 release lists worldwide.
Renowned for their enamouring live show as much as they are for their haunting, potent and visceral material, this marks the band’s first Australian tour since their sublime run with local symphony orchestras in 2018 so get set to revisit the album that started it all and beyond when EVANESCENCE return to our shores to celebrate 20 years of Fallen.
