A guitar-driven anthem, “The Game is Over” is a protest against the facades we are pressurized to put on by society. In the face of depression and anxiety – and especially in a world that seems to crumble further each day – it’s a cry to end the charade that everything’s fine. The accompanying video is a nightmarish, effects-laden look at the emotional havoc that the current situation has wrought. Despite being restricted to shooting themselves on iPhones, the band, in collaboration with director P.R. Brown, managed to achieve a highly stylized production literalizing the metaphorical monsters within us. The video is astonishing proof of the creative spark of working with limited resources and a testament to the band’s commitment to its craft. Spotlighting the mental darkness behind the false smiles, it’s a disturbing, technicolour tribute to the light at the end of the tunnel – if you’re willing to face the terrors that line its walls. Singer Amy Lee says of “The Game is Over” – “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 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.” The band are set to tour Europe next year, dates are below: 2021 Wed 8th Sept Zurich, CH, Hallenstadion Zurich Thu 9th Sept Milan, IT, Mediolanum Forum Milan Sat 11th Sept Berlin, DE, Velodrom Sun 12th Sept Gliwice, PL, Arena Gliwice Tue 14th Sept Leipzig, DE, Quarterback Immobilien Arena Wed 15th Sept Hamburg, DE, Barclaycard Arena Fri 17th Sept Amsterdam, NL, Ziggo Dome Sat 18th Sept Amsterdam, NL, Ziggo Dome Mon 20th Sept Paris, FR, Accorhotels Arena Tue 21st Sept Düsseldorf, DE, Mitsubishi Electric Halle Wed 22nd Sept Munich, DE, Zenith Fri 24th Sept Esch-Sur-Alzette, LU, Rockhal Sun 26th Sept Frankfurt, DE, Festhalle Mon 27th Sept Brussels, BE, Palais 12 Tue 28th Sept Brussels, BE, Palais 12 Thu 30th Sept Glasgow, UK, The SSE Hydro Arena Fri 1st Oct Leeds, UK, First Direct Arena Sun 3rd Oct Birmingham, UK, Utilita Arena Birmingham Mon 4th Oct London, UK, The O2 Thu 7th Oct Madrid, Spain, Palacio Vistalegre **** ****Evanescence ONLY Follow Evanescence Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTube Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...
