Evanescence have released a new video for their single “Use My Voice,” directed by Eric Howell. The clip serves as a metaphor for recent activism movements, depicting singer Amy Lee alone in the darkness before she finds solidarity with her bandmates and a diverse group of people as the light breaks through. Howell, who first met Lee in 2015 when she contributed the end theme for his film Voice from the Stone, wanted the video to act as “a hopeful metaphor of moving from darkness into a more illuminated future by being heard.”
“Use My Voice” follows the singles “Wasted on You” and “The Game Is Over.” All three will be featured on Evanescence’s upcoming album The Bitter Truth, their first collection of new material in over a decade. The quarantine-filmed video for “Wasted on You” was recently nominated in the Best Rock category at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, airing this Sunday, August 30th.
