Synthesis, the new Evanescence album featuring orchestral reworkings of the band's previous hits, has debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard album chart.

The disc, which also includes two new songs -- "Imperfect" and "Hi-Lo" -- starts at #8 on the chart.  It's the band's first album since 2011's self-titled collection, which debuted at #1.

This is the fourth top 10 album for Evanescence overall: including the 2011 disc, their previous chart-toppers were The Open Door, from 2006, and 2003's Fallen.

Evanescence is currently touring North America in support of Synthesis alongside a full orchestra.  The band's next show is November 30 in Chicago.
