EVANESCENCE will embark on a headlining tour of Mexico and the United States later this month. The trek comes on the heels of the band's Family Values stint over the summer.
"I am excited to be headlining our own tour this fall," frontwoman Amy Lee said. "While Family Values tour was fun, it will be nice to do something special for EVANESCENCE fans. This time around we will get to spend more time with the audience and play a longer and more diverse set."
Joining EVANESCENCE on the trek will be SICK PUPPIES and JULIEN-K.
SICK PUPPIES is Shimon Moore (vocals, guitar), Emma Anzai (bass) and Mark Goodwin (drums). The Sydney, Australia modern rock trio's groundbreaking "Free Hugs" video has garnered more than 11 million views on YouTube since it started streaming on the site last year. SICK PUPPIES will bring its infectious tunes and a jaw-dropping stage show to the U.S. tour dates in support of its North American debut, "Dressed Up As Life", which was released by RMR/ Music Group / Virgin Records in April 2007.
JULIEN-K is the brainchild of two of the founding members of the platinum selling group ORGY; Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck. Fusing the elements of dark electronic club music with styles of modern rock and pop, JULIEN-K are at the forefront of the electronic music scene. Joined by drummer Elias Andra and studio collaborator and cohort Brandon Belsky on keyboards & vocals, the band pushes the boundaries of what traditional electronic music is supposed to be with explosive live performances that are larger than life. JULIEN-K is currently on LINKIN PARK's Projekt Revolution Tour.
