Following the release of triumphant new record The Bitter Truth last month, Evanescence have shared a video for the album's latest single, Better Without You.

Alluding to what inspired the track, Amy Lee told Kerrang! recently, "The song is really hard… I can’t lie in the music. And over time, that’s become truer and truer. I’m peeling away more of the layers of imagery and really being specific at times just saying what I really need to get off my chest. Some of what I’m saying are things that I’m not comfortable breaking down and explaining, because I don’t want to bring up old drama. Better Without You is a difficult song to describe and go into detail about. And so is [previous The Bitter Truth single] Yeah Right, actually."

The singer added: "Better Without You talks about all the obstacles along the way, moving from the past into the present time. I have different parts of the song that are assigned to different people and entities in my mind. But I don’t think calling people out when I’ve already defeated all my monsters along the way is really something I want to do.”

Evanescence have also just announced that they'll be playing several songs from The Bitter Truth live for the first time during a livestream next month.

The Driven To Perform Livestream Concert will happen on May 13, and is presented by Cooper Tires and hosted by the one and only Alice Cooper.
