Synthesis (Pre-Order)EVANESCENCE returns this Fall with SYNTHESIS, their fourth
studio album. The group premiered "Bring Me To Life"-an
instant grat track-via Rolling Stone.
"'Bring Me To Life' is new to me again after 15 years," says AMY
LEE of EVANESCENCE. It's diffi cult 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 two-time, GRAMMY Award-winning group is currently in the
studio fi nishing the new album through August with producers
Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell.
In addition to the re-imagined catalog songs, the forthcoming
SYNTHESIS album will feature two new EVANESCENCE songs.
Like the album, the "Synthesis Live" tour features a reimagining
of some of EVANESCENCE's best-loved songs with the spotlight
on full orchestra and electronics combined with the band and
Amy Lee's virtuoso piano and voice.
2017 promises to be the biggest year for EVANESCENCE yet,
as their intense live performances and timeless songwriting
combined with a powerful live orchestra and electronics will
truly deliver a transcendent experience.1. Overture

The AstonishingThe Astonishing is undisputedly the most ambitious undertaking by a band whose cerebral compositions already define the vanguard of progressive hard rock.
The Astonishing is enriched exponentially by the integration of a real orchestra and choir, arranged by conductor David Campbell, whose work graces over 450 gold and platinum albums, including watershed releases from Adele, Justin Timberlake, Linkin Park, Evanescence, BeyoncÉ, and his son, Beck. The Astonishing was produced by Petrucci with engineering and mixing by Richard Chycki, whose resume includes work with Rush, Aerosmith, and Mick Jagger. Other organic sounds are more abundant than at any point in the band's history, with Rudess in particular relishing the tones from a grand piano and Hammond organ.
Like Tommy or The Wall, the songs on The Astonishing work as both singular compositions and overall story components. Writing the music as a duo, Petrucci and Rudess venture into unexplored corners of their sound without sacrificing their musical identity.LP 1

FallenFallen is the debut studio album by American rock band Evanescence. After releasing several EPs and a demo CD, the group signed to Wind-Up in January 2001. Writing songs for Fallen started near the time of the band's formation; several of the songs that would feature on the album appeared on the band's earlier releases. Fallen was recorded between August and December 2002 in several locations, including Conway Recording Studios in Hollywood, California. This was followed by a two-week period of mixing at Conway Recording Studios in North Hollywood.
Fallen was originally released on March 4, 2003, on Wind-up and Epic Records. Fallen is Evanescence's most commercially successful album to date, selling more than seven million copies in the United States and over 17 million copies worldwide. It debuted at number seven on the Billboard 200 after selling more than 141,000 copies during its first week and peaked at number three in June 2003. Fallen topped the charts in more than ten countries. The album was certified seven times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and was certified abroad.1. Going Under

The Open DoorThere's nothing like a breakup to focus your muse. This follow-up to the stunning, multi-platinum Fallen was penned as singer Amy Lee's troubled romance with bandmate Ben Moody was spiraling out of control, impelling her to craft an anxious record full of recriminations, revelation, and self-flagellation, as she questioned everything that kept her whole. It's a fascinating journey for the listener as she ventures into her own personal heart of darkness, her stricken, perfect voice suspended on an unsteady precipice between breakdown and breakthrough.
Despite the loss of two members, including guitarist Moody who left mid-tour in 2003, the album has a maturity, sophistication, and a singular vision that wasn't found in their earlier work. Stately and as exotic as Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti, with its intricate instrumentation, disturbing imagery, and disembodied chorus, The Open Door shows exactly what this band is capable of. Snow White Queen is a goth-y alternative to Mariah Carey's We Belong Together, equally anthemic, but with much more grit and pain. -Jaan UhelszkiLP 1

EvanescenceThe self-titled, third studio release from Evanescence, produced by Grammy-winning Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Rush), contains the hard-driving anthems and introspective ballads the hard rock group has mastered since their breakout debut in 2003. The 12 tracks demonstrate the growth of the band's writing style and lyrical content.
Frontwoman Amy Lee says, It's about freedom, when describing the album's first single, the hard-charging,What You Want. Other songs include Lost in Paradise, which Lee calls, The most intimate song on the album and My Heart is Broken, a track driven by Lee's signature lyrics and piano playing.
Backed by the heavy guitar sound of Terry Balsamo and pounding drums of Will Hunt, the new album is powerful and aggressive. We've been working on this music for a very long time and seeing it all finally come together is a really amazing feeling. Lee continues, This album is about us and also our fans. We re combining the best of Evanescence with some new attitude and we're just dying to share it.1. What You Want

WholeChicago heavy rockers SOIL release their sixth studio album Whole via Pavement Entertainment. It's the band's first 100% independent release.
We wanted to call all the shots on this album and, for the first time ever, hold our future in our own hands, explains bassist Tim King.
Whole is the first SOIL album with original frontman Ryan McCombs since 2004's Re.De.Fine (after which he joined DROWNING POOL). It sees SOIL returning to its classic sound that fans have come to admire, with a pres release calling it the CD that could have come directly after the 'Scars' album in 2001."
Following the 2012 release of its first-ever live DVD, Re-LIVE-ing The Scars, SOIL began writing new material and entered the studio in February 2013 with producer Ulrich Wild (PANTERA, BREAKING BENJAMIN) to begin recording.
This was by far the most comfortable and natural recording process we have ever experienced, says guitarist Adam Zadel. From the writing, pre-production, and through the main tracking and mixing, everything was smooth and fluid.
Songs featured on Whole include The Hate Song, Loaded Gun, Way Gone and Shine On, which is dedicated to the SOIL fans for standing by the band throughout the years. Another track, Amalgamation, sees McCombs taking songtitles from both the SOIL and DROWNING POOL releases he was a part of and weaving them into verses of the song.
I think, lyrically speaking, those that are familiar with the work I've done are going to get the next chapter that they would expect, McCombs says about the lyrical process. Words from a heart and mind that has lived them.
One of the greatest things I experience as a lyricist is when people come up and share with me how a song, or a specific verse or line from a song, got them through a hard time or times in their lives. It reminds me of the times music did that for me and how powerful music and/or a lyric can be in a person's life.
Drums and percussion on Whole were performed by Will Hunt (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, EVANESCENCE, DEVICE).
Will added a whole new dimension to the songs, states King. He added a monstrous and aggressive vibe to the album.
A guest guitar solo on Wake Up was performed by longtime friend Mike Mushok of the band STAIND.

"A brilliant leap forward" -Rolling Stone
"The best punk record you'll hear all year" -Magnet
The Ugly Organ made landfall on March 4, 2003, the same day as Evanescence's Fallen and roughly two weeks
before the start of the Iraq War. The darkest days of the Bush Era were settling in like a dense fog over the
entire country, and the outlook was bleak. That made The Ugly Organ especially potent, its gloomy inward
focus a natural re action of the era. The press accolades came quickly, from the mainstream (Rolling Stone
called it "a brilliant leap forward," and Entertainment Weekly said it "raised the Saddle Creek bar") to the niche
(The A.V. Club called it "a potent piece of rock art," Alternative Press gave it a perfect score).
With The Ugly Organ, Cursive made a landmark album for itself and Saddle Creek. It was the label's 51st release
and the second in what my colleague Marc Hawthorne called "Saddle Creek's holy trinity" in his liner notes for
The Faint's Danse Macabre reissue: Danse Macabre, The Ugly Organ, and Bright Eyes' I'm Wide Awake, It's
Morning. (I'd argue more for LIFTED or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground on that count, but I'll
save that for the next time I see Marc.)
Just prior to The Ugly Organ, Saddle Creek had released the celebratory compilation Saddle Creek 50, which
included Cursive's gleefully self-referential "Nonsense" ("I really don't want to write another 'I'm a dick' song
again"), which is included on this reissue. The label's 49th release had been another Cursive joint, the "Art is
Hard" single, which featured the explosive six-minute B-side "Sinner's Serenade," also included here. Rounding
it out are four songs from Cursive's split EP with Eastern Youth, 8 Teeth to Eat You-check out the ferocious
playing by cellist Gretta Cohn on "Excerpts from Various Notes Strewn Around the Bedroom of April Connolly,
Feb 24, 1997"-and two songs from the single for "The Recluse." It's an exhaustive-and exhausting-snapshot of a band realizing its power and wielding it for maximum impact.
And then Cursive was gone. Again. Taking another of its intermittent hiatuses. An unease has accompanied
every album after The Ugly Organ that it could be the last one-no, for real this time. Maybe because The Ugly
Organ capped an unprecedented productive streak, ending a three-record, three-year run with an album that
can't help but re ect the e ort that went into it. The exhaustion, the ambivalence, the doubt, it all bleeds out
of those 12 tracks. At the end of "Staying Alive," the "ghost chorus" referenced in the liner notes sings, "The
worst is over, Doo do Doo do Doo do Doo doo." On second thought, maybe it's neither hope nor resignation,
but simple relief. The storm has passed. And it was a motherfucker.

Need You Now (Deluxe Edition)Plumb fans say her music brings hope and inspiration to their world. It's the highest compliment. Fame and fortune are fleeting, says Plumb, but making a difference in people's lives lasts for eternity. I want to tackle the difficult subjects in life, because I want people to know that the hard times, just like a piece of coal, can be turned into a diamond. So confesses singer/songwriter Plumb, an artist whose music blends the complex, feminine poignancy of Suzanne Vega and Sarah McLachlan with the sophisticated, modern rock of Shirley Manson from Garbage or Amy Lee of Evanescence.
Although Plumb's songs have sold millions of records for other artists, it's as a solo artist that her contribution to music can be felt most deeply. Plumb's music has appeared in Television shows ranging from Dawson's Creek, Felicity, ESPN's March Madness and more. Major motion pictures and soundtrack exposure include Bruce Almighty, Just Married, The Story Of Us, Loser, View From The Top, Drive Me Crazy, The Perfect Man and Evan Almighty. Plumb songs have also been recorded by the likes of Michelle Branch, Mandy Moore, Jennifer Page and more. Having achieved exposure in a variety of outlets as well as radio formats, Plumb's fans reach across multiple demos.1. Invisible
