HeadCount is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that helps to make it easy to register to vote for U.S. citizens. Evanescence teamed up with them to promote Use My Voice, the third single off The Bitter Truth. If you visit www.usemyvoice.org between August and September 30, 2020 to get yourself vote-ready (for U.S. citizens only), you will get access to a free, private online performance from Evanescence in October. For fans outside the U.S. they can pledge to vote here and they will also get sent the link for the performance nearer the time.
Amy Lee said:
|“For many Americans, voting is too often an intimidating experience. We all saw the long lines in certain precincts in Georgia during their recent primary elections.
Unfortunately, what happened there is not unique in America. It happens all the time, especially in underserved communities in our country. Now, add COVID-19 into the mix and you have the perfect combination of factors to continue to suppress the voice of the people.
The Use My Voice campaign is about empowering people to use their voice at the ballot box. Promoting easy access to registration and voting is not a Democratic or Republican issue – it’s an American issue and one we should all promote because there’s nothing more patriotic than supporting participation in our democratic process.”
Evanescence's virtual performance was streamed online on October 30, 2020 at 9 p.m. ET. A unique access code was sent to people who registered on HeadCount's website two days prior to the performance in order to watch it. The performance was pre-recorded at Rock Falcon Studio, where the band were recording The Bitter Truth. The setlist was as follows:
- Wasted on You
- The Game is Over
- The Only One
- Going Under
- Use My Voice
- Bring Me to Life
- Lost in Paradise (piano and vocal)
The performance was available on December 5, 2020 at 4 p.m. ET. Tickets to watch it were available for $12.50 at EvanescenceLive.com. It was released as a bonus CD on the deluxe edition of The Bitter Truth.
