On Saturday, Dec. 5, Amy Lee and Evanescence will host Evanescence: A Live Session From Rock Falcon Studio, a special streaming event that marks the band’s first public performance of 2020.

In addition to songs from the band’s huge 2003 debut album, Fallen, which featured the breakout singles “Bring Me to Life” and “My Immortal,” the set promises music from the band’s upcoming album The Bitter Truth and more.

As a preview of this streaming event, Evanescence shared a performance of its new single, the powerful “Use My Voice”:

Tickets for the live stream cost $12.50 and are available at this link.

Ahead of the show, Evanescence formally announced its new album, The Bitter Truth, which will be released on March 26, 2021. Here’s another new song titled “Yeah Right”:

The official music video for the uplifting “Use My Voice” was shared in recent months:

When released, The Bitter Truth will be the first studio album of new material from Evanescence since 2011’s self-titled album.

It was that 2003 debut, Fallen, that put Evanescence on the map in a major way. “Bring Me to Life” was a phenomenon, helping the album sell eight million copies in the United States and 17 million worldwide, establishing it as one of the best-selling albums of the decade and earning the band five GRAMMY nominations, winning Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance along the way.

2006’s The Open Door followed three years later despite band member turnover and other issues, before a five-year gap ended with 2011’s self-titled record. Since then, Evanescence has remained mostly quiet as far as studio albums are concerned, releasing Synthesis, a collection of reworked material with orchestral arrangements, in 2017.
