Watch EVANESCENCE Perform New Song Called 'Take Cover'

November 16, 2016

Video footage of EVANESCENCE performing a new song called "Take Cover" on October 28 in Dallas, Texas can be seen below.

The band has been playing the track live as part of a short run of dates ahead of the December 9 release of vinyl box "The Ultimate Collection".

EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee told TeamRock: "We are playing a new song live right now. We got together for rehearsals and we really focused this tour on the fans and the history of the band.

"Kind of in light of this whole box set theme, we wanted to do everything that the fans want and not just what we felt like doing. It has been so fulfilling and so fun.

"When we got together the guys were really strongly supportive of it, we had a song in the bank. And we were like, 'You know what the fans would really love is a new song. That's all they ever ask for.'

"So we knocked the dust off an old song called 'Take Cover' that we had in the bank for a while and we loved it. It's one of our favorite moments every night on the tour.

"I think they like it a lot. I posted the lyrics on Facebook and now I get at least five people in the front row mouthing along, which is extra fun."

Lee added that EVANESCENCE has been inspired to work on some more new music, although it's not clear if there are firm plans for the band to record the follow-up to 2011's self-titled effort.

"We're definitely in a creative mindset," she said. "We're playing the best that this band has ever played.

"Everyone is healthy and happy and loves being here and likes working together. It sounds like maybe that shouldn't be so rare, but it really is.

"So we're looking for opportunities to work together more and we want to get creative. We're definitely in that new chapter moment where the wheels are turning."

"Take Cover" lyrics:

By the way that you talk to me
I can see the liar, dream that i'll believe
By the way, don't you forget
Who you are now
'Cause that's not your name

You better take cover
I'm coming back to take your world down
Move over, if you can
You're gonna wish that you did

Seed to your insecurity
That's what drove you down in the first place but you had enough of me?
in your big web of lies
Gonna be the bitch you make me out to be

Oh you better take cover
You are the last to face it, my wrath?
Move over if you can
Make you feel my wrath

Take cover
I'm gonna have to take you all down
Move over if you can
You're gonna wish that you did (End of lyrics]

EVANESCENCE went on hiatus after touring for the release of its 2011 self-titled record. During that time, Lee gave birth to her son, Jack, and worked on both solo and soundtrack music.
