Evanescence has released a music video for their latest single, “The Game Is Over“. The band filmed the video themselves while quarantining with P.R. Brown overseeing the project. The band’s bassist Tim McCord offered:
“This was by far and away the most difficult video I’ve ever been a part of, emotionally. In order to capture the raw emotion of what life really is for us these days, I had to get to some really dark places. I hope we can all view this video and heal together.”
Amy Lee, the band’s frontwoman had previously commented on the song stating:
“This song is about being sick of the facade. The disguises we wear for others to make them feel comfortable, the inside feelings being so different than what we show on the outside to fit within the boundaries of what’s socially acceptable, or what’s not going to make you unpleasant or too ‘weird’ to be around.
‘The Game Is Over‘ is a promise to myself and out loud that I’m going to be more of my real, inner self on the outside — not lock her up because she can’t be contained anymore. It’s also a prayer to become better, to not feel so messed up, locked up, and hurt inside.”
The song will appear on the band’s upcoming new album The Bitter Truth, which has yet to have a release date attached to it just yet.
