Mid-2000s goth kids rejoice! Evanescence is reuniting -- but there's a catch.
The rock band will be getting back together for a brief, intimate U.S. tour across three cities before heading onto a headline performance at Ozzfest in Tokyo, Japan.
"We got offered to do Ozzfest Japan in the beginning of the year," singer Amy Lee revealed to Rolling Stone, "so I was like 'Let's say yes to that.' 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 tour launches on November 13 in Nashville, Tennessee, then the band will head to Dallas and L.A. before heading onto Ozzfest Japan. Details and ticketing info can be found here.
Evanescense went on hiatus after their 2012 Evanescense tour. During the break, the band filed a lawsuit against their former label, Wind-up Records, over royalties.
Evanescence has no plans to create new music as a band, but Lee, who spend her time off composing film scores, has recently embarked on a cover project that she kicked off by releasing her rendition of Portishead's "It's A Fire" on her website.

Evanescence is only playing three dates in the U.S. before jetting off to Japan, but don't worry too much if you can't make it. Lee is already thinking about the future.
"It will be good to see the fans again," Lee said. "I'm going to be keeping my eye open to us for more opportunities. Like probably next year."
