EVANESCENCE’s debut album “Fallen” has been certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA) for sales and streams of ten million units in the United States
The LP saw the release of such notable EVANESCENCE singles as “Bring Me To Life“, “Going Under“, “My Immortal” and “Everybody’s Fool“. EVANESCENCE would also walk away with two Grammys in 2004 for the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Best Hard Rock Performance”.
When singer Amy Lee was asked in a recent interview with Rock Sound if there were any plans for EVANESCENCE to commemorate “Fallen“‘s 20th anniversary in 2023, she replied (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I do have an idea. It’s gonna take a little bit of work. But I think it probably won’t be what everybody expects. I think everybody just is, ‘Oh, why don’t you do a show that’s, like, [playing] the album front to back?’ We’ve been playing so many shows, I would rather do something that, to me… I don’t know. I don’t wanna give it away, in case it doesn’t work out. Maybe I’ll do nothing. Expect nothing, and then if I do something, you’ll be really, really grateful. [Laughs]”
Back in February, EVANESCENCE‘s music video for “Bring Me To Life” surpassed one billion views on YouTube. Directed by Philipp Stölzl and filmed in Romania in 2003, the video was uploaded to YouTube in December of 2009.
