Evanescence's "The Open Door" has been certified platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of one million copies. Evanescence will be the featured musical guests on CBS' "The Late Show With David Letterman" airing on Thursday, December 14 at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT. Evanescence shot a video last week for "Lithium", the second single from "The Open Door", with director Paul Fedor (Deftones, Alice In Chains, Adema). "The Open Door" sold 447,000 copies in the United States during its first week of release to land at the top of The Billboard 200 chart. Evanescence recorded "The Open Door" while dealing with its guitarist having a stroke, a legal battle with its former manager, and singer Amy Lee's public break-up with Seether's Shaun Morgan. Then just as the project was completed, bassist Will Boyd decided it was time for him to exit. Thanks for the info to Blabbermouth.net.
