Evanescence exploded with their first single, "Bring Me To Life
," which found an audience hungry for emotionally charged rock music delivered by a female lead singer - a rarity at the time. But their second single, "Hello
," made little impact, putting them in danger of evanescing. "My Immortal
" brought them back to life; radio stations welcomed the song and MTV pushed the video, sending it to #7 US in April 2004, more than a year after Fallen
was released. By this time, Amy Lee was the last original member still in the band; keyboard player David Hodges got out before the album was released, and Ben Moody broke down in the middle of their first tour, leaving in October 2003.
