The Chain

Video
Evanescence filmed the music video for ''The Chain'' on December 3, 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee. A few days prior to filming, the band had an unfortunate incident at [[Knotfest|Knotfest Mexico]] where they had to cancel their set due to safety concerns with a broken barrier. This caused outrage within the crowd, and some of them proceeded to jump on the stage and destroy the equipment, including burning [[Will Hunt]]'s drums. This inspired the band to include a set of burning drums in the music video.<ref>{{cite web|last=Lee|first=Amy|date=December 1, 2019|url=https://twitter.com/AmyLeeEV/status/1201264606200684549|title=Now I find myself wondering...|work=Twitter}}</ref>
The video was released to YouTube on January 9, 2020,<ref>{{cite web|last=|first=|date=January 8, 2020|url=https://twitter.com/evanescence/status/1214684220829782017|title=Our new video for “The Chain” comes out Thursday!|work=Twitter|accessdate=}}</ref>, and this is what Amy and the director, [[Paul R. Brown|P.R. brown Brown]], had to say about the video:
{{quote|'''Amy:''' 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:''' 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.<ref>https://loudwire.com/evanescence-gears-5-video-game-the-chain-video/</ref>}}
