Earlier in 2021, Evanescence released The Bitter Truth, their first album in 10 years, which the LA Times called their “fiercest songs to date.” Current single “Better Without You” is their first Top 10 Rock Radio track in ten years, and previous single “Use My Voice” is currently nominated for “Best Rock” at the MTV Video Music Awards. It’s the second year in a row that Evanescence has scored a Best Rock nomination, as well as the second year in a row that they are the sole female-fronted act nominated in the category.

Last month, Halestorm released “Back From The Dead,” their first new music since 2018’s Vicious. Called a “biting but cathartic howler” by Rolling Stone, the song quickly achieved the most first week streams to date for the band and debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Digital Song Sales.” “Back From The Dead is pure, full-throttle hard-rock – with a mandate-from-the-gods riff, wall-shaking drums and a climactic electric guitar solo from Joe Hottinger,” praised Guitar World. The video for the song, which surpassed one million views a week after its premiere, is here.
Two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning Evanescence has made an impact on people around the world. The group’s 2003 landmark debut album Fallen laid the foundation spending 43 weeks on the Billboard Top 10 and selling more than 17 million copies worldwide. Debut single and global hit “Bring Me to Life” reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and marked their first U.K. No. 1 hit single. The equally popular “My Immortal” peaked at No. 7 in the U.S. and 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 Evanescence which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts. Evanescence lead singer-songwriter and pianist Amy Lee, bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt, lead guitarist Troy McLawhorn and guitarist and backing vocalist Jen Majura went down both very new and familiar paths for their fourth and most ambitious release to date, Synthesis, in 2017 via BMG. The symphonic effort scored four Billboard No. 1s, debuting atop the Independent, Alternative, Rock and Classical Album Charts. Evanescence launched their worldwide “Synthesis Live” tour in October 2017 combining their intense live performances and timeless songwriting with a powerful live orchestra. The Bitter Truth, out now on BMG, is Evanescence’s fourth studio album.
Grammy-Award winning band Halestorm has grown from a childhood dream of siblings Lzzy and Arejay Hale into one of the most celebrated rock bands of the last two decades. Currently at work on their follow-up to 2018’s Vicious, Halestorm’s music has surpassed a billion streams worldwide. Called a “muscular, adventurous, and especially relevant rock record” by Rolling Stone, Vicious earned the band their second Grammy nomination, for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song “Uncomfortable,” the band’s fourth No. 1 at rock radio, and led Loudwire to name Halestorm “Rock Artist of the Decade” in 2019. Fronted by the incomparable Lzzy Hale with drummer Arejay Hale, guitarist Joe Hottinger and bass player Josh Smith, Halestorm has earned a reputation as a powerful live music force, headlining sold-out shows and topping festival bills around the world, and sharing the stage with icons including Heaven & Hell, Alice Cooper and Joan Jett.
