Evanescence release ‘The Game is Over’ the second song to be taken from The Bitter Truth, their first album of new original music in nine years. The Bitter Truth will be released incrementally throughout 2020 via RCA.

Singer Amy Lee says of “The Game is Over” –
 “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 guitars are heavy and Amy’s voice is still the power force we remember from the early days. They still know how to craft a big chorus and use Amy’s lungs to burst through the drudge of bass, guitar and drums. A gothic version of the quiet loud that still works after all these years. Theres nothing new here its just Evanescence doing what they do so well. Which is good enough for me.

The iPhone-shot, neon-nightmare of a video for “The Game is Over” will go live Friday 3rd July at 12 pm ET / 5 pm UK during a live YouTube premiere featuring a fan Q&A with Amy Lee – link HERE.
