From the days of “Bring Me To Life” 20 years ago, to the brand new single “Use My Voice” and everything in between, we had a chat with lead singer and front woman Amy Lee on what it’s like creating new music in quarantine, what we can expect to hear from their new album and the most memorable moments over the past 20 years.
What is the process like when creating a new video in quarantine?
Well we have been learning as we go. We found ourselves in an impossible situation this year as far as making a video the typical way, but what I really believe about art is that the feeling, the heart, is more important than the production quality. We looked at the world around us and all felt big feelings, but only had phones. So we just did our best to capture those feelings on our phones! For both quarantine videos we did, we got a basic idea, look and collection of shot goals with our long time director Paul Brown, then all independently went and tried to collect them, and also just used the moments and surroundings given to us from beyond our control to show how we felt and what we were going through. A lot of my favorite footage I got was spontaneous. A willingness to be vulnerable has been key both times, because if you can’t rely on pristine quality, you have to rely on authenticity (which is more important anyway).

Band alludes to recent activist movements in new visual
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.”
“We are proud to stand up and join the fight against the injustice, lies and oppression that plague our country and the world,” Lee 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 inspire. Use your voice. Vote.”
“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.
