Evanescence have released their brand new single The Game is Over. The track is the second single from their forthcoming album The Bitter Truth, which is their first album of new, original music in nine years.
“This song is about being sick of the facade,” explains vocalist Amy Lee. “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.”
Evanescence will reveal the iPhone shot, neon-nightmare video for The Game is Over on 3rd July 2020 at 5pm BST (12pm ET) during a live YouTube premiere HERE, which will also include a fan Q&A with Amy Lee.
