Craft Recordings will celebrate Evanescence’s enduring debut album Fallen with a series of collectible reissues. Available on two-LP, two-CD, and digital formats—as well as a Super Deluxe Edition collector’s box set—Fallen (20th Anniversary Edition) will offer newly remastered audio, including the albums global chart-topping singles “My Immortal,” “Going Under,” “Everybody’s Fool,” and the Grammy-winning smash hit, “Bring Me To Life.”
In 2003, when the rock charts were dominated by predominantly male nü-metal and post-grunge acts, a young female-fronted band from Arkansas stood out from the crowd, offering something entirely new. They were Evanescence—and with their debut album, Fallen, they transformed the rock landscape.
Led by frontwoman Amy Lee, Evanescence’s cinematic blend of metal and symphonic, piano-driven melodies captured a generation, while Fallen set the band on a path to global superstardom, earning them multiple Grammys, and becoming one of the highest-selling albums of all time.
The expanded set also includes a trove of bonus material—ten tracks in all—comprising previously-unreleased demos and live recordings plus a selection of rare B-sides. Alongside reimagined artwork, all physical formats will include previously-unseen photos from the era, plus a handwritten foreword by Lee, who oversaw all aspects of the reissue.
Fallen (20th Anniversary Edition) is available for pre-order now, while fans can stream a previously-unreleased 2002 demo of “Bring Me To Life,” above, in addition to the remastered album version of the hit song. The two-LP, two-CD, and digital formats will be released on November 17.
The classic black two-LP set is available wide, with limited color pressings also available from select retailers including Blue Smoke (via Target), White and Purple Marble (via Barnes & Noble), Pink and Black Marble (via Indie Retail), and a unique Black & Silver blend (via Evanescence.com).
Also available exclusively via Evanescence.com is the Super Deluxe Box Set, arriving February, 2024. Housed in a collectible shadow box-style package (inspired by Lee’s songwriting journal cover art), this very limited edition includes all of the above-mentioned music as part of a two-LP set (featuring the Black & Silver blend vinyl) plus a bonus cassette of previously unreleased demos and voice notes which is exclusive to this box set.
