Evanescence is making it clear — it’s time to be done playing by other people’s rules in their new songThe Game Is Over”.

The single is from their upcoming album The Bitter Truth, which is scheduled to come out this Fall.

Lead singer Amy Lee says, “This song is about being sick of the facade. The disguises we wear for others to make them feel comfortable, the inside feelings being so different than what we show on the outside to fit within the boundaries of what’s socially acceptable, or what’s not going to make you unpleasant or too weird to be around”.

The Bitter Truth will be Evanescence’s first original studio album in nine years.

The official music video for “The Game Is Over” comes out this Friday.

What’s an example of a time you tried to “fit in” even though maybe it didn’t feel right?
