The Devil Wears Prada To Release New EP “ZII” In May

The Devil Wears Prada will be releasing a new EP titled “ZII” on May 21. The effort will serve as a follow-up to the band’s 2010 EP “Zombie.”

“ZII” Track Listing:

01. “Nightfall”
02. “Forlorn”
03. “Termination”
04. “Nora”
05. “Contagion”

The group commented:

“There’s no question that the ‘Zombie’ EP is a fan favorite and a record that really set the pace for us as a heavier band. A goal we had for this EP was to pay tribute to ‘ZI’ while honing in on the characteristics that we enjoy about heavy music today and the directions we want to see it heading.”

“We just had our first song go to radio with ‘Chemical’, and now in the same year, we will be releasing the heaviest music of our career with ‘ZII’. This isn’t just a new chapter for the ‘Zombie’ EP; this is a new chapter for us as a band, and an opportunity to lean into both sounds in ways that feel better than ever. We’ve found our footing with these six members. Now we’re stepping on the gas and not letting up.”

“Before, there were five songs about how to fend off the apocalypse. Now, there are five songs of hopelessness against the hoard.”

The Devil Wears Prada will be performing “ZII” in full during a livestream show on May 15. Tickets and pre-orders for the EP can be found HERE.

The Devil Wears Prada Premiere “Chemical” Music Video

The Devil Wears Prada have premiered a new video for their song “Chemical.” This track is from the band’s latest album “The Act.” Jon Gering commented:

“‘Chemical‘ is about coming to terms with the idea that all of our feelings, good and bad, are just chemical reactions in our brains. It is both a bleak and hopeful way to to view the world, but at times it can help us to move forward.”

The Devil Wears Prada Premiere “Please Say No” Lyric Video

The Devil Wears Prada have premiered a lyric video for their song “Please Say No.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Act,” which will be released on October 11. Mike Hranica commented:

“‘Please Say No’ is based off of a scene within the novel ‘Never Come Morning’ by Nelson Algren. This song is more difficult to explain than any other set of lyrics I’ve assembled. Saying the song is derivative of class injustice is insufficient and saying the song is born of a violent crime is cheap. Lyrically, I’d urge interested listeners to read the book. Musically, I’ll encourage listeners to enjoy what I consider to be our moodiest effort on ‘The Act’.”
