Evanescence Stream Cover Of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain”

Evanescence have officially released their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.” The cover was originally recorded for the latest installment in the “Gears Of War” series, “Gears 5.” Amy Lee commented:

“This cover was so fun to make. We love Fleetwood Mac and wanted to paint a dark and epic picture with our take on The Chain. The lyrics make me feel the power of standing together against great forces trying to pull us apart, perhaps even from the inside. I really wanted to drive that home in our version, and even made everyone in the band sing by the end of it! We’re beyond excited to share this with you and I’m really looking forward to playing it live.”

However, the equipment failed to make in time for the rescheduled show, so the band ended up playing a special acoustic set with rented instruments. You can see footage of that below:

Amy Lee Says Evanescence Are Hoping To Release A New Album In 2020

During a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Grant Random at the Epicenter festival, Amy Lee talked a bit about Evanescence’s current plans. She said the band are using this year to write material for their new album and that they are hoping to release it next year.

Lee said the following about the group’s 2019 plans:

“This is sort of a creation year for us. We’re playing a few festivals and some headlining shows — a little bit, but not too heavy. And in the time in between getting together and starting the writing process for a new album.”

She also added the following when asked when fans can expect to hear the new album:

“Hopefully next year. We’re just gonna get together and see what happens this month, and start doing that more regularly until we feel like we’re ready to do it.”
