The track is the second preview of Evanescence’s upcoming album 'The Bitter Truth'.
Evanescence have dropped a surreal video - recorded by the band on an iPhone - for their new single 'The Game is Over'.
Utilising the lockdown fever for art's sake, the band collaborated with director P.R. Brown to create a distorted music video for the second preview off their upcoming album The Bitter Truth.
The album is the group's first batch of original songs in almost a decade.
Creepy effects, lipstick smears, masks, and blank walls feature in 'The Game Is Over' visuals, with the violent percussion building alongside the musicians screaming at the camera.
“This song is about being sick of the facade,” singer Amy Lee said in a statement.
“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,” she continued.
“It’s also a prayer to become better, to not feel so messed up, locked up, and hurt inside.”
The Bitter Truth follows 2017’s Synthesis - instrumental revamps of old songs - will be released later this year.
The band previously released the lead single from the album, 'Wasted on You'.
