The Eric Howell-directed clip features the band alongside Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale and “a diverse group of citizens as they unite for change and justice.” Frontwoman Amy Lee wanders alone in darkness before she meets up with her bandmates and other people. This newfound solidarity helps light break through the darkness.

“This is an era of awakening, and full of powerful beauty,” Lee said about the song. “I hope to inspire others to seek truth, find their own voices, and use them as I step up to use mine. Don’t let anybody speak for you. Only you can do that.”
Evanescence teamed up with HeadCount to coincide with the release of “Use My Voice.” Speaking about the collaboration Lee said “We are proud to stand up and join the fight against the injustice, lies and oppression that plague our country and the world. No matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from or who you love, your voice matters. We hope to shine a light in the darkness, to empower and inspire. Use your voice. Vote.”
Evanescence’s new album, The Bitter Truth, doesn’t have a release date, but will be shared intermittently throughout 2020.
