Evanescence Premieres Video For Cover Of ‘The Chain’

Evanescence traverses through a post-apocalyptic wasteland in their new music video for their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” recorded for the Gears of War 5 soundtrack.

Directed by P.R. Brown, the clip features the band performing the song under harsh red lights and a smoky atmosphere. Footage from the video game are interspersed throughout. The video ends with the band’s drumkit catching fire, which is oddly similar to a recent incident at Knotfest Mexico.

“The goal of the video is to show the bond of this band as they deliver a powerful take on a classic song,” said Brown in a statement. “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.”

Watch the video below.

Evanescence is currently working on a new album, which is due this year. They’ll embark on a European tour in April. See all their dates here.
