Following “Wasted On You”, Evanescence drops another new single that will be featured on their upcoming studio album “The Bitter Truth”. Listen to “The Game Is Over” below.
Titled “The Bitter Truth”, the album is Evanescence’s first offering since 2017’s “Synthesis” and their fifth studio record to-date, due out this fall. More details on the album to follow.
Vocalist Amy Lee on the track: “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,” she continues, “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.”
