Watch Evanescence’s New Video For Use My Voice
Evanescence’s powerful recent single Use My Voice now has an equally moving official video to match.
The group have just unveiled their new Eric Howell-directed clip, which not only features vocalist Amy Lee and her bandmates, but also Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale, and “a diverse group of citizens as they unite for change and justice” reflective of the song’s message.
“This is an era of awakening, and full of powerful beauty,” says Amy of Use My Voice. “I hope to inspire others to seek truth, find their own voices, and use them as I step up to use mine. Don’t let anybody speak for you. Only you can do that.”

Evanescence have teamed up with HeadCount to coincide with the release of Use My Voice, with the singer adding: “We are proud to stand up and join the fight against the injustice, lies and oppression that plague our country and the world. No matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from or who you love, your voice matters. We hope to shine a light in the darkness, to empower and inspire. Use your voice. Vote.”
Amy also recently explained why she has started talking about politics, “I’ve in a way reached a point this year where I feel like silence is a statement that I don’t want to make.
“I needed to express myself in that song. And we began thinking about, ‘how can we make things better?’ Not divide people, not scream from the rooftops. There’s a lot of screaming going on, and Use My Voice, in turn, is a song imploring people to vote, be themselves and to stand by what they believe.”
