20:30 Evanescence (USA)
One of the most popular post-alternative American bands of the 2000s, Evanescence debuted with a hybrid operatic goth-pop sound that paired soul-baring introspection with churning metallic guitars. Fronted by singer/pianist Amy Lee, the band scored a massive hit with their first album, the Grammy-winning, international multi-platinum Fallen (2003), which was followed by a pair of chart-toppers. Even with multiple lineup shifts, the band perservered under Lee's helm, slowly shifting from the radio-friendly anthems of their early days into a shimmering, classically inspired symphonic alternative outfit in the 2010s. Evanescence was formed in the early '90s by Amy Lee and founding member Ben Moody at a youth camp in their native Little Rock, Arkansas. Lee and Moody worked steadily together, releasing three EPs at the tail-end of the '90s, followed by a full-length album called Origin. Released in the spring of 2003 and initially marketed toward CCM audiences -- an association the band disavowed rather rapidly -- their debut album Fallen quickly proved to be a success thanks to the platinum hit single "Bring Me to Life," which was soon followed by "My Immortal," both reaching the Billboard Top Ten in the U.S. The album eventually went 17-times platinum across the globe. All this success led to two Grammys, one for Best New Artist and one for Best Hard Rock Performance. A massive tour took up much of 2012 (including stops in North America, Europe, Asia, and South America), after which Lee announced that the band would take an extended break. Evanescence wouldn't return to the stage until 2015, when they played the Japanese offshoot of Ozzfest and a handful of American dates. In 2017, the band released a new studio album entitled Synthesis. Composed largely of new versions of their early material, re-recorded with orchestral arrangements and electronic elements, the cinematic set also included two new songs, "Imperfection" and "Hi-Lo" with tourmate Lindsey Stirling.
