The EvClub was opened on September 22, 2006, just before the international release of The Open Door. It was the first—and only—official fan club ever started by the band. The club featured exclusive photos and contests as well as personal blogs, Band Member Blogs and an email account (username@evfanclub.com). Other perks included ticket pre-sales and Meet & Greet opportunities.

There was also a successful message board inside the club that featured posts by the band.
