According to frontwoman Amy Lee, it’s as though the reworked, orchestral version is new to her again, differing from the original version included on the band's 2003 album, Fallen.

“'Bring Me To Life' is new to me again after 15 years,” Lee explains. “It's difficult to explain how good that makes me feel. Having the chance to incorporate things I've heard in my head throughout that long period of time, nuances from the way I sing it live, just pouring the weight and perspective of the life I've lived now back into that root—it's pure satisfaction.”

The band are currently finishing up their newest album, and in addition to the re-imagined catalog songs, their forthcoming album will feature two new songs.

Plus, Evanescence’s forthcoming fall tour will feature a reimagining of some of the band’s best-loved songs, with a spotlight on the full orchestra and electronics combined with the band.

“This will be our first time touring with orchestra and I'm so excited to perform this way-really focus on the vocals, and the emotion and the story we've built over the years,” Lee says. “I’m also really excited about the new material on the album. Besides the two new songs, there are some really beautiful instrumental in-between moments. The whole thing flows like a big, dynamic soundtrack.”

The band have announced that their fourth studio album, Synthesis, is due out this fall.
