EVANESCENCE: Making Of ‘The Chain’ Video

EVANESCENCE recently returned with its first new rock recording in eight years, “The Chain (From Gears 5)”. The band recorded its signature-rock version of the FLEETWOOD MAC classic following lead singer Amy Lee having lent her vocals to the launch trailer for the Xbox Game Studios’ “Gears 5” for Xbox One, Windows 10, and Steam, from the massively popular “Gears Of War” series. The spot aired as part of a multi-million-dollar ad campaign last fall in conjunction with the launch of the game. “Gears 5” was Microsoft’s most successful video game launch since Halo 4 in 2012.

Behind-the-scenes footage from the making of “The Chain (From Gears 5)” video can be seen below. The clip was directed by P.R. Brown and produced by Steve Lamar.

Said Lee:
This cover was so fun to make. We love FLEETWOOD MAC and wanted to paint a dark and epic picture with our take on ‘The Chain’. 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, and even made everyone in the band sing by the end of it! We’re beyond excited to share this with our fans and I’m really looking forward to playing it live.

In 2018, Lee told the 93.3 WMMR Rocks! radio station that she wasn’t opposed to the idea of releasing singles and EPs instead of full-length albums, especially as streaming services like Spotify continue to alter the way people consume music.

I just think it’s cool to be able to have this freedom to commit to less and do more,” she said. “I’m totally open to doing a few songs instead of an album here and there, and see what happens.
