Evanescence front-woman Amy Lee took to Facebook to reveal news about the bands first project in six years, titled ‘Synthesis’.

The album will hold two new compositions alongside full renditions of the bands previous works but ” and instead being set to full orchestration.

We are hoping to hear more about release dates in the near future and as Amy promised, dates for a ‘Synthesis’ Tour with a complete orchestra, so that we really will hear the music in a completely new way.

Watch the full announcement video below.

“Synthesis. We’re calling it that to represent the combination, the contrast and the synergy between the organic and the synthetic and also the past and present.

We’ve gone through our entire catalogue of music and picked out the songs that were made to be heard in this way and we’re sewing them together from the ground up, this isn’t a remix.”
