With Evanescence about to hit Australian shores again this month we caught up with guitarist Jen Marjura to chat about what fan can expect to hear on this tour.

With the band teaming up with local orchestras to perform the Synthesis album live Jen says that fans are going to have to get used to a lot more power coming off the stage. “Absolutely there is a lot more power,” she says with a laugh. “I can remember that when I was like 13 or 14 I played violin in a school orchestra and  I remember that warm and mighty feeling of playing with an orchestra. And it is very beautiful, especially with Synthesis because we don’t have as many amps and we’re playing more electronic sounds with pedal boards and it is really nice to see that acoustic and warm being mixed up with the orchestral and then the electronic sounds that we do. It is something very new that we have done because the band pretty much merges into the orchestra.” It’s not like rock and orchestra… it’s like something new and it’s something really interesting.
