EVANESCENCE To Be Joined By Eight-Piece String Section At BILLBOARD Awards

EVANESCENCE will be joined by an eight-piece string section for their rendition of "My Immortal" at tomorrow's (Dec. 8) Billboard Music Awards. The collective spent more than an hour last night rehearsing the number at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena, at one point pausing for a few bars of METALLICA's "One" between takes, according to Billboard.com.

David Campbell, the father of singer/songwriter Beck, was responsible for the string arrangement. "It's cool to do the song like this for the first time," guitarist Terry Balsamo told Billboard.com. "It gives it a real different element."

Balsamo said the group will take a break for the holidays before regrouping in January to get moving on a new album. "The stuff we have so far is different, but it's still EVANESCENCE," he said. "I think everybody will be happy."
