Evanescence Adds Goth Twist To Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain"

November 28, 2019

This is a completely new take on the classic track!

Evanescence dropped a cover of Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" for the XBOX franchise Gears Of War 5. The group has taken the Rumours song to a whole new level with their Goth twist, building drums, and Amy Lee's haunting vocals. 

"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. We’re beyond excited to share this with you and I’m really looking forward to playing it live."

Evanescence definitely achieved what they were aiming for. The song hits much harder than the original and if you played it for someone who never heard it before they probably couldn't guess it was a Fleetwood Mac track.

Initially "The Chain" cover started out simply for a commercial for the video game, but the band loved what they did so much they dropped a full cover.
