Even in Death

Even in Death was an Evanescence tribute band born in spring 2002 under the name Estesia, showing from the beginning a particular creativity and the originality of their music in which the power of rock guitars is mitigated by sophisticated piano melodies and delicate and well-mixed sounds. So started a laborious live activity, which leads them on several Tuscan stages and rock events where they presented their work. In 2003 the band performed at Donoratico (LI) during an event organized by Emergency and MTV Italia and in the same year, they produced their first EP "POP ART." Later the Estesia project undergoes a radical metamorphosis taking new life and form, even amplifying, the valuable characteristics acquired. The renewal was the add of a new bassist (Federico) and immediately after a new guitarist (Claudio) and in the substitution of the initial male voice, with the female voice (Carlotta) whose characteristics have suggested the inspiration for the creation ofthe present tribute band ,that today is able to give to Evanescence fans, the typical sophisticated atmosphere and, thanks to the determination of newcomers, the surprising energy of the famous Band headed by the charming Amy Lee.

Forevanescence UK band logo

Forevanescence is the UK's premier Evanescence tribute act that has been labelled by audiences as close to the real thing as you can get. The band formed in February 2018 after co founding members Katie & Jon decided they would take their love of the tracks to a live audience. Katie has been a fan of Evanescence since she first discovered Bring Me To Life when she was 12 and has been an avid fan ever since, from seeing them at her home town or travelling to the Czeh Republic to see them on her birthday. Katie has been singing professionally for 13 years and attributes most of her love and ability for singing to having sang along to the Evanescence tracks for many years.

Jon has been playing guitar since he was 16 and first discovered Evanescence through the Daredevil soundtracks ‘Bring Me To Life’ & ‘My Immortal’ and after one phone call in November 2017 to Katie, decided to make Foreveanescence happen . The lineup became complete when the remaining members Becky, Alex & Chris joined.

Playing their first gig in February 2019 at Birmingham's rock venue Route 44, they are now taking off and are being booked for shows around the UK. The band are very keen to remain as close to the real thing as possible with most of the members even resembling the current Evanescence line up. The band are also working hard to grow their presence online - you can find and follow their social channels and the content they create which is usually live videos of their gigs, or covers of the tracks such as the 2000 hit ‘Going Under’. The founding members plan to meet Evanescence on their latest tour in 2020 at the Birmingham meet and greet sessions.

The band are keen to cover all the popular songs from the repertoire and have even created a ‘metal’ version of the recently released Synthesis hit ‘Imperfection’ and are currently waiting to the anticipated release of the new album for 2020 which will be added to the set list.
