Evanescence has dropped a new single called “The Game Is Over,” which will appear on the band’s upcoming album, The Bitter Truth.
In a statement, frontwoman Amy Lee says the track, which you can download now via digital outlets, is “about being sick of the facade.”
“The disguises we wear for others to make them feel comfortable,” Lee explains. “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 continues. “It’s also a prayer to become better, to not feel so messed up, locked up, and hurt inside.”
“The Game Is Over” follows the previously released single “Wasted on You.” The Bitter Truth, the first all-original Evanescence effort in nine years, will be released incrementally throughout 2020.
