This is a comprehensive list of fonts that Evanescence has used throughout their career. Some were original fonts that aren't publicly available, however there are always freeware equivalents or close facsimiles.


Evanescence EP:
Packard Antique Regular (by Typographer Mediengestaltung)
-This isn't the actual font, but it is the closest that can be easily found online.

Trebuchet MS (by Microsoft Corp.)
-The font used for the album title, song titles, lyrics, and liner notes. Use spaces to get the same look as the on the album art.

Evanescent (by Aeryn)
Evanescent (as tweaked by Gyakusetsu)
-The front cover logo and current band logo as well as the lyric song titles.
-Contains an added character (the extended 'A' from the new logo) and a few characters that have been re-spaced and re-worked a bit for accuracy plus the 'Fallen' logo.
Apple Garamond (bitstream inc.)
-Not exactly the font but freakishly close. Used for the liner notes and back tracklisting. Also used on the Live CD/DVD set Anywhere But Home.

Anywhere But Home:
Anywhere (by Gyakusetsu)
-Used as the logo and tracklisting. (This font looks fine when small, but is rather jagged when enlarged; not recommended for use as a normal typeface.)
Anywhere But Home (by Brittany)
-Same as previous font, a bit more correct when it comes to the alphabet (looks better when enlarged and when used as a normal typeface).

The Open Door era:
The Last Font I'm Wasting On You (by Gyakusetsu)
-Used for the track listings on the back and lyrics pages of the album. File also contains an accurate 'e' logo and "the Open door" cover logo.
Times New Roman (The Monotype Corporation)
-Used in the liner notes and acknowledgements sections of the album. (If it isn't The Last Font I'm Wasting On You, it's Times New Roman.)
Curly Art Nouveau (House of Lime)
-Used in the promotion of The Open Door. Contains the curly logo decorations and other fancy curvy characters including the one used in the logo.
FrankRuehl (The Monotype Corporation)
-Also used in the promotion era of The Open Door. Used on the radio promo for Call Me When You're Sober and other various logos.

Logos throughout the years:

The old Evanescence logo
-There is no font (as of is rumored that Gyakusetsu is planning on making one) of the older Ev logo, however on evanescence's old pre-Fallen website, there was a photoshop vector hosted that had the logo as seen on the Bring Me To Life DareDevil radio promo.

The Fallen era Evanescence logo
-The logo we all know and love. Can be easily derived from the 'Evanescent' (by Aeryn) font by typing the characters "EVan+escéncç" (I know its weird, but you've gotta trust me that it works)

The Anywhere But Home and The Open Door era logo
-Has an altered 'A' character with an extended right leg. Used only on the Anywhere But Home cover, but when the The Open Door era came around, it began getting used everywhere from the album cover to t-shirts and stickers. Can easily be derive from the 'Evanescent' (as tweaked by Gyakusetsu) font by typing the characters "EVön+escéncç" (I know its weird, but you've gotta trust me that it works)
