Last fall, we celebrated early access for Gears 5 Ultimate Edition with the television debut of “The Chain” during the NFL Season Opener. Today, transcendent, two-time Grammy Award winning rock band, Evanescence, has released the full official music video “The Chain,” their first new rock recording in eight years. Directed by frequent collaborator, P.R. Brown (My Chemical Romance, John Mayer, Green Day), the piece blends powerful, epic performance visuals with footage from Gears 5. Watch it above, and listen to the song on all digital streaming platforms here.
Kait Diaz’s journey to discover herself in Gears 5 is brought to life by Evanescence’s haunting rendition of “The Chain,” one that evokes the feeling of standing together in solidarity against adverse and unknown forces, even those coming from within. The partnership with Gears 5 also begins a new journey in what is expected to be a very active period for the band as they get set to tour on the international stage.
On March 29, Evanescence’s spring tour dates commence with a performance at Download Festival in Tokyo, Japan. Shortly thereafter, the group will embark on a massive co-headline tour of Europe and the U.K. with Within Temptation that runs from April 4 to May 1. You can check out all of the band’s tour dates and purchase tickets at Evanescence’s website here, and fans can also keep up with what the band is working on by following them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. Evanescence is currently working on new original music, which will start rolling out in 2020 in advance of their highly anticipated fifth full-length studio album.
