Evanescence was formed in 1995 by singer Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody. The band had enjoyed local success until the release of their first major album, Fallen, in 2003. Fallen became a huge commercial success, and spawned the hit singles "Bring Me to Life", "Going Under", "My Immortal", and "Everybody's Fool". The album peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 chart and went on to sell more than 17 million copies worldwide.[2] Evanescence won two Grammy Awards (for Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance) in 2004.

Their second album, The Open Door, was released in 2006 and debuted at number one on five national charts, including Billboard 200, with the first single "Call Me When You're Sober". The album also produced minor hits "Lithium", "Sweet Sacrifice", and "Good Enough". It has sold over five million copies worldwide.[2]

Evanescence, their third studio album, was released on October 11, 2011 and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The first single, "What You Want", was released on August 9, 2011 to moderate success. The second single, "My Heart Is Broken", was released on October 31. The last single from the album, "Lost in Paradise", was released on May 25, 2012.
