In news sure to please anyone who was a teenager in the mid-2000s, Evanescence band members have announced they will be reuniting for a limited series of shows this November.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, singer Amy Lee confirmed the band would be getting back together to play concerts in Nashville, Dallas, and L.A. before heading to Tokyo, Japan, for a headlining spot at Ozzfest on Nov. 21.

"We got offered to do Ozzfest Japan in the beginning of the year, so I was like 'Let's say yes to that,'" Lee told Rolling Stone. "I just added the three U.S. dates on to it so we could get a little practice before doing a big gig where everything is out of your control."

The band will be at Nashville's Marathon Music Works on Nov. 13, Dallas' South Side Ballroom on Nov. 15, and Los Angeles' Wiltern on Nov. 17, according to the group's official website.

The band has been on "hiatus" for three years, in which time Lee has pursued something of a solo-career, which has also included scoring films.

But she said she felt drawn back to the group, and was touched by fans' continued love for their angst-filled songs.

"It's such a wonderful gift to have this bag of songs that people know," she said. "It makes me very happy to sing 'Bring Me to Life.' I don't feel so disconnected that I can't sing 'My Immortal,' [though] that's just not completely who I am anymore.

"Yes, I have grown since then. I wouldn't write that song today, but it's become a beautiful part of my history and my fans," she said.

There are no apparent plans for any new music as yet, but Lee did hint at further appearances next year.

"It will be good to see the fans again," she said. "I'm going to be keeping my eye open to us for more opportunities. Like probably next year."

In the meantime, this should get you and your ~feelings~ through until then:
