Evanescence has released the official music video for ‘Use My Voice’, the band’s new single that “captures the current socio-political zeitgeist of advocacy and activism” (MTV). The visuals follow frontwoman Amy Lee, her bandmates, and a diverse group of citizens as they unite for change and justice. The clip was directed by acclaimed filmmaker Eric Howell. Lee first met Howell back in 2015 when she was asked to write the end title theme for his film “Voice From The Stone”, starring Emilia Clarke (“Game Of Thrones”).
Beginning with Amy alone in the dark and ending in a collective light-filled demonstration as the day breaks, the video serves as a hopeful metaphor of moving from darkness into a more illuminated future by being heard.
Earlier this month, Evanescence partnered with HeadCount, one of the leading non-partisan, non-profit voter information services in the U.S. to help people navigate the registration and voting process by providing information on options to vote safely during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We are proud to stand up and join the fight against the injustice, lies and oppression that plague our country and the world,” Amy said. ‘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 inpire. Use your voice. Vote.”
