Two of the biggest female-fronted rock groups are hitting the road together. Evanescence and Halestorm are joining forces and playing arenas across the U.S. this fall.

The joint trek will begin on Nov. 5 at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Ore., and make its way to the East Coast. Tickets are available now on Ticketmaster.com.

"Words can’t express how excited we are to go back on tour with our friends and rock out again," said Evanescence's Amy Lee in a release. "We’ve been building this new music in isolation for over a year and dreaming of what it will be like to finally play it live, and to experience it together with our fans for the first time. We can’t wait to see you there!”

The tour will work its way through Washington, California, Texas, Michigan, Pennsylvania and close out on Dec. 18 at DCU Center in Worcester, Mass.

Lee and Halestorm's Lzzy Hale are close friends as well as close collaborators. Last year, Hale performed backup vocals on Evanescence’s “Use My Voice,” and Lee joined Hale on a new version of Halestorm’s “Break In.”

"We have all been mourning the loss of live music, and patiently waiting, looking toward an uncertain future. Finally the future looks bright and I can’t think of a better way to break the silence than with our dear friends in Evanescence," said Hale in a release. "I can only imagine how it will feel to step on stage again night after night, and reconnect with all of the fans whom I’ve missed so much. Get ready for intense emotions, loud performances, and a newly exhilarated energy unlike any tour we’ve experienced in the past. Looking forward to seeing you all!"

This Thursday (May 13), fans can get a sneak peek of Evanescence playing live during their “Driven to Perform” Cooper Tire livestream concert, which features songs from their recently released Top Rock Album, The Bitter Truth, along with older favorites.
