Evanescence Unleash New Song ‘The Game Is Over’

Evanescence has released, The Game is Over, the second song from The Bitter Truth (Sony Music Australia). Their first album of new original music in nine years, The Bitter Truth will be released incrementally throughout 2020.

The iPhone-shot, neon-nightmare of a video for The Game is Over was premiered as a YouTube premiere featuring a fan Q&A with Amy Lee.

Amy 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.
