Evanescence Premiere “The Game Is Over” Music Video

Evanescence have premiered a new video for their latest single “The Game Is Over.” This track will appear on the band’s upcoming album “The Bitter Truth.”

Tim McCord said the following about the clip, which was filmed in quarantine:

“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 previously said the following about the song:

“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.”

“We’ve had a lot of fun making this — it’s an entirely new approach, an entirely new concept, and a way to absorb the video game platform that I believe you guys are going to enjoy. There are a lot of incredible other musicians who’ve been involved in the casting, the creation, the scoring, and the performance within this video game and I would just want to say thank you to all of them who’ve been involved, and thank you to everyone who has created ‘Of Bird And Cage‘ for having me on board.”
