Evanescence drop a music video for their cover of The Fleetwood Mac’s classic”The Chain”. Watch it below.
“The Chain” was originally released by the US/ British rock band Fleetwood Mac in 1977. After doing a short cover for the Gear 5 commercial earlier in 2019, Amy Lee and co. decided to record a full version of their take on the track and accompany it with a video, too.
The vocalist Amy Lee says: “The lyrics make me feel the power of standing together against great forces trying to pull us apart, perhaps even from the inside. I really wanted to drive that home in our version.”
“The goal of the video is to show the bond of this band as they deliver a powerful take on a classic song,” says P.R. Brown, director of the video. “The tie in with Gears 5 presented an opportunity to combine the game world together with the band performance in a post-apocalyptic setting. The band emerges from the ashes to come together. We wanted to bring these worlds together and feel both the force of the band and the game.”
