On the heels of sharing their cover of Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" as part of Xbox video game 'Gear 5', Evanescence has now shared the official music video.

In a press release, Evanescence's Amy Lee says of the music video, "The lyrics make me feel the power of standing together against great forces trying to pull us apart, perhaps even from the inside. I really wanted to drive that home in our version."

P.R. Brown adds, "The goal of the video is to show the bond of this band as they deliver a powerful take on a classic song. The tie in with Gears 5 presented an opportunity to combine the game world together with the band performance in a post-apocalyptic setting. The band emerges from the ashes to come together. We wanted to bring these worlds together and feel both the force of the band and the game."

When the song was initially released, Lee also tweeted of putting their spin on the Fleetwood Mac tune, "This cover was so fun to make. We love Fleetwood Mac and wanted to paint a dark and epic picture with our take on 'The Chain.' The lyrics make me feel the power of standing together against great forces trying to pull us apart, perhaps even from the inside. I really wanted to drive that home in our version, and even made everyone in the band sing by the end of it! We're beyond excited to share this with you and I’m really looking forward to playing it live."
