The official music video for ‘Wasted On You’, the new single from Evanescence, can be seen below. The song will appear on will the band’s first album of new original music in nine years, “The Bitter Truth”, which will be made available over the course of this year via BMG.

When asked in an interview with Kerrang! if the bands were looking forward to their shows together, Within Temptation singer Sharon Den Adel said: “Of course! It’s a different thing for us because we’ve played big shows and venues in some countries, but to do a whole tour like this is something new. And with the two bands, we’re in the same scene and we have some similarities. We also have some differences in the music, of course, but I think the combination makes this tour really strong.”
