Launch Radio Networks reports: EVANESCENCE is slated to co-headline this summer's Family Values tour with KORN, marking the first time that EVANESCENCE has appeared on a U.S. touring festival. Singer Amy Lee told Launch that she and her bandmates are thrilled with the idea of being part of a bigger lineup of acts. "Well, obviously we're KORN fans, but there's a lot of cool bands on the bill and when you're on one of those shows that's a bunch of bands and not just like two or three, you basically get to spend the whole day listening to music and watching other bands perform," she said. "And not only is it really fun and inspiring, but it takes a lot of the pressure off, because you're not like (laughs) the only band that everyone's relying on, you know, at the end of the night to play for like an hour and a half and not make any mistakes. So we're all very excited."Family Values starts on July 20 in St. Louis and also features FLYLEAF, HELLYEAH, TRIVIUM and ATREYU.
EVANESCENCE recently filmed a video for "Sweet Sacrifice", the new single from the band's 2006 album, "The Open Door". The group is currently in the midst of a U.S. tour with openers CHEVELLE and FINGER ELEVEN that brings it to Reading, Pennsylvania on Monday night (April 2). The trek ends on April 5 in Glens Fall, New York, after which EVANESCENCE will head to South America, South Africa and Europe.
