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.
