Formed in the mid-90s, the two-time GRAMMY Award-winning EVANESCENCE has made an impact on people around the world. The band was integral in establishing a global, critical mass for women in rock. The group’s 2003 landmark debut album Fallen laid the foundation; spending 43 weeks on the Billboard Top 10 selling more than 17 million copies worldwide. Debut single and global hit “Bring Me to Life,” reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as marking their first U.K. #1 hit single. The equally popular “My Immortal” peaked at #7 in the U.S. and U.K. The album produced four singles total including “Going Under” (#5 U.S. Modern Rock, #8 U.K.) and “Everybody’s Fool” (#36 U.S. Modern Rock, #23 U.K.).
Following multiple worldwide tours, The Open Door came next, which went on to sell more than five million copies followed by the self-titled Evanescencewhich debuted at No1 in the Billboard Charts. EVANESCENCE–lead singer-songwriter and pianist AMY LEE, bassist TIM MCCORD, drummer WILL HUNT, lead guitarist TROY MCLAWHORN and guitarist JEN MAJURA—went down both very new and familiar paths for their fourth and most ambitious release to date, SYNTHESIS in 2017 via RCA. EVANESCENCE launched their worldwide “Synthesis Live” tour in October 2017 combining their intense live performances and timeless songwriting with a powerful live orchestra.
About WITHIN TEMPTATION:
WITHIN TEMPTATION – legendary leaders of dark anthemic music, with a career spanning two decades – recently signed a worldwide deal with Universal Music Germany, partnering with Spinefarm Records for North America and the UK. This joining of forces came ahead of their latest album Resist, released on February 1st, 2019. With 7 studio albums under their belt – Enter , Mother Earth , The Silent Force , The Heart of Everything , The Unforgiving , Hydra  – and more than 3.5 million record sales to their name, Within Temptation (led by Sharon den Adel and Robert Westerholt) are a genuine force to be reckoned with. Simply, one of the world’s most successful heavy rock groups.
The band has previously headlined all of the major festivals in Europe – Download, Hellfest, Wacken Open Air, Graspop and Woodstock Poland amongst other major events – and received numerous international awards, including a World Music Award, MTV Europe Music Awards, a Metal Hammer Award and many more.
New album, Resist, marks a departure for the band; primed with 10 anthemic tracks and driven by grand melodies and dark hooks, Resist puts a futuristic spin on the world of heavier music, both instrumentally and thematically. RESIST has received a number of #1 positions internationally – including Germany for the first time in the band’s career.
