EVANESCENCE share new single,’The Game Is Over’ from album, The Bitter Truth.
Here is EVANESCENCE – The Game Is Over (download). The song has just been released with Mp3 streaming [320kbps]. The new track is the latest record from the music band. This past January, the band returned with its first new rock recording in eight years, “The Chain (From Gears 5).
EVANESCENCE released the second song from its upcoming album, “The Bitter Truth” (BMG). A guitar-driven anthem commanded by Lee’s peerless mezzo-soprano and Will Hunt’s heavy arena percussion, “The Game Is Over” is a protest against the facades we are pressured to put on by society. In the face of depression and anxiety — and especially in a world that seems to crumble further each day — it’s a cry to end the charade that everything’s fine.
The accompanying video is a nightmarish, effects-laden look at the emotional havoc that this period has wrought. Despite being restricted to shooting themselves on iPhones, the band, in collaboration with director P.R. Brown, managed to achieve a highly stylized production literalizing the metaphorical monsters within us.
The video is astonishing proof of the creative spark of working with limited resources and a testament to the band’s commitment to its craft. Spotlighting the mental darkness behind the false smiles, it’s a disturbing, technicolor tribute to the light at the end of the tunnel — if you’re willing to face the terrors that line its walls.
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.”EVANESCENCE’s new music is being produced by Nick Raskulinecz, who also worked on 2011’s self-titled LP.
Lee told Loudwire about the musical direction of the new EVANESCENCEmaterial: “It’s a combination of a lot of things. It’s definitely one hundred percent us, but it’s also taking risks. And I think it’s meaningful — it’s deeply meaningful. But at the same time, a lot of it has attitude. I don’t know if I can explain that super well, but some of our music is like that.
If you can listen back and think about, especially some of the later music, like ‘What You Want’ or ‘Call Me When You’re Sober’, there’s a track or two in there that is the next step from that in its feeling, I would say.”
