EVANESCENCE and SEETHER will be teaming up for a North American trek beginning July 7 in Vancouver, according to MTV.com. THREE DAYS GRACE and BREAKING BENJAMIN will also be joining the bill.
"I thought it would be really fun to tour together since we've never had the chance," Lee said of her boyfriend, SEETHER singer Shaun Morgan. "We're always missing each other on tour, like, 'I wish you were here so you can see this, this is awesome, I'm in Paris,' or whatever. It'll be fun to see how it works. I'm gonna try not to blow it. Mixing business with pleasure: sometimes it blows up in your face, but I'll try my best."
Although near nonstop touring tends to wear on most bands, Lee said the opposite is true for EVANESCENCE. "We've learned how to be on the road," she told MTV.com. "You learn to pace yourself. It's hard to explain, but once the tour has been together for a while you learn how cool it is. We had a break, and after a week it was like, 'When are we going back on tour? I've gotta get back on the road!' "
