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.”
