‘Evanescence’ Announce New European Tour Dates


Various new Evanescence European tour dates have been announced. See the full list of dates below.

Evanescence released its self-titled third major label album last October, five years after the group issued its last effort, 2006’s The Open Door. But one of the reasons the new record took so long to come out is that Lee began work on a version of it in 2010 that she ended up scrapping. The Pulse Of Radio asked Lee why that first attempt at recording didn’t work out. “I think it really was a case of us going in the studio too soon,” she said. “I think people a lot of times get pressure for moving fast, especially in this day and age — you know, the public has a short attention span, you know, it’s all about striking while the iron’s hot. I don’t believe that. I believe in great music. If this is gonna be our big Evanescence comeback record, it wasn’t there yet. So we kept working. We ended up making a record that I’m just, it’s my favorite so far. We’re all really proud of it.” Check out our album review.

Evanescence third album sold 127,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The Open Door has shifted 2.1 million copies in the United States so far, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Evanescence‘s debut album, Fallen, has sold 7.6 million copies since its March 2003 release.

Lee, who got married in 2007, says she and her husband are ready to deal with the reality of her being away on tour for months. She told Noisecreep, “It’s always going to be hard on a relationship, being in a band, but my husband and I have really had a chance to build our life together and so now we’re ready for everything that happens when I’m on the road.”
