Evanescence Release New Song, The Game Is Over
Evanescence have dropped another single from their upcoming album The Bitter Truth.
Titled The Game Is Over, it’s the follow-up to April’s lead single Wasted On You.
Speaking about the new song, vocalist Amy Lee says: “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.”
An official video for the track is coming this Friday (July 3) but you can listen to it below.

A release date for The Bitter Truth is yet to be announced. Last week the band were forced to postpone their When Worlds Collide tour with Within Temptation until 2021.
“We are so disappointed that we won’t be seeing you this fall, but we’re accepting the challenge 2020 is giving us and pouring our time and hearts into making a great album instead,” said Amy. “Friends, we miss you terribly and can’t wait to play these songs for you next year! Be safe, be well, we love you!”
