After nearly 10 years since Evanescence put out a collection of new work, their latest release The Bitter Truth has catapulted them back into the mainstream. Just weeks after the LP release, Evanescence joined The Kelly Clarkson Show to perform “Better Without You.” Led by vocalist Amy Lee, the group put on a larger-than-life, fiery performance.

“My next guests have been rocking it out for nearly two decades, earning two Grammys with their first album out of the gate,” Clarkson says in her introduction. “It’s been 10 years since they’ve put out a new album, but they spent their time during the pandemic digging in creatively, and the result is a new LP that’s certainly been worth the wait. Now performing ‘Better Without You’ from their new album, The Bitter Truth, give it up for Evanescence.”

Despite COVID-19 restrictions, Evanescence were able to create a dark, theatrical performance topped with bright red LED lights and fog covering the stage. Joining Lee onstage was guitarist Troy McLawhorn, bassist Tim McCord and drummer Will Hunt. The group’s guitarist Jen Majura joined the performance from a remote location in Germany.

After delivering several singles in waves beginning in 2020, leading up to the release of The Bitter Truth on March 26, 2021, Evanescence released the official video for “Better Without You” in April 2021. Evanescence’s performance on The Kelly Clarkson Show isn’t the group’s only talk show appearance in promotion of the album, though. Earlier this year, Evanescence appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform “Wasted On You.”

Evanescence’s performance of “Better Without You” isn’t the only news for fans to rejoice over. The band announced they are reuniting with Halestorm for a co-headlining arena tour in late fall 2021. In a safely filmed tour announcement video, Lee and Lzzy Hale expressed how excited they are to head out on the road and see fans again.

“We are so stoked to be going out on tour together again and want you all to see us,” Hale says.

While Evanescence and Halestorm previously toured together in 2012 for the Carnival Of Madness tour, Lee and Hale are no strangers to collaborating with one another. Appearing on several tracks together, Lee and Hale previously worked on The Bitter Truth’s “Use My Voice” and Halestorm’s reimagined “Break In.”

Evanescence will embark on their first in-person tour with Halestorm beginning in November 2021, but they will also appear remotely for the Driven To Perform livestream concert on May 13 hosted by Alice Cooper.

Lee and Hale have also appeared in several interviews together. Alternative Press recently spoke to In This Moment’s Maria Brink and the Pretty RecklessTaylor Momsen alongside Lee and Hale for a female empowerment round table. The full interview is featured in the debut Power Issue: Women Rising, available here.
