That's it! I declare that 2019 is the official year of the emo's... and I'm god damn excited. First Slipknot, Sleeping With Sirens & TOOL release albums all in one year, then My Chemical Romance & Rage Against The Machine announce full on reunions and finally, Evanescence release a new cover of Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain".
This isn't the first time the classic song has been covered by a Rock Artist. In 2004 the band "Tantric" released their version of The Chain on their second album "After We Go". The song would later be covered once again by Toothgrinder in 2018 and now by Evanescence in 2019.
We are wondering if the latest cover by Evanescence is the sort of music we are going to hear in their upcoming album which is set to be released in 2020. Are Evanescence going back to their Rock & Metal roots? We do hope so!
