Evanescence has 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.

‘The Chain‘ is the first release in what is expected to be a very active period for Evanescence. Following their critically acclaimed foray into symphonic music with 2017’s “Synthesis” album and world tour, the five-piece has re-emerged by embracing a heavier sound, albeit with their trademark style that has made Evanescence integral in establishing a global, critical mass in rock, and among the most unique artists of the millennium. The band is currently working on new original music, which will start rolling out in 2020 in advance of their next studio album. Stay tuned for more details to come.

Evanescence will begin recording a new album early next year, according to lead singer Amy Lee.

Evanescence last released “Synthesis” in 2017 and a self-titled effort in 2011.

Asked by Summa Inferno what’s next for Evanescence, Lee spilled the beans to the rock and metal outlet — watch the interview toward the bottom of this post. The chat took place preceding what was to be the group’s Saturday night set at Mexico City’s Knotfest Meets Forcefest late last month. Unfortunately, safety issues caused the cancellation, and a group of riotous fans subsequently set fire to Evanescence‘s equipment onstage.
