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 finishes a U.S. tour with openers CHEVELLE and FINGER ELEVEN tonight in Glens Fall, New York, after which EVANESCENCE will head to South America, South Africa and Europe.
In other related non-news, Amy Lee says she has not spoken with her ex-boyfriend, Seether frontman Shaun Morgan since their breakup in late 2005. "You know how relationships are," she said. "It really is hard to still be friends and talk all the time when there's hurt feelings there, you know. You open yourself up and there's a wound there, and even after it heals, it's sort of like, you can't heal together. That's not really healing for the most part. So, no, we're not really talking or anything, but I hear he's doing good and they're working on a new album, so all the best."
Lee has said that "Call Me When You're Sober", from EVANESCENCE's 2006 album "The Open Door", was inspired by her two-year relationship with Morgan. The SEETHER frontman eventually went through rehab last summer and is now working on his group's third record.
Amy got engaged to boyfriend Josh, a therapist, in January while the band was in Toronto to perform at the Air Canada Centre.
The longtime friends have been dating for about a year. It will be her first marriage.
EVANESCENCE is playing South Africa's My Coke Festival on April 27 in Johannesburg and May 1 in Cape Town. The band will also perform in South America for the first time later this month.
