Mike Hranica Says The Devil Wears Prada Are “Trying To Do Something Very Different” With Their Next Album

During a recent interview with Heavy New York, Mike Hranica talked a bit about The Devil Wears Prada’s new album plans. According to him, the band are “trying to do something very different this time around and put out a record people haven’t heard.”

Hranica said the following:

“We’re still in the planning stages as far as a hundred percent locking in studio time, although it’s looking like late March, April-ish or something. And hopefully a record [out in] November. I would love November — that’s what I’m kind of aiming at — but we also don’t wanna rush it and compromise the rollout process. Especially ’cause we’re trying to do something very different this time around and put out a record people haven’t heard… When we first started writing, Kyle and John had almost 30 songs put together and they listened to them and they were, like, ‘This just sounds like ‘Transit Blues Part 2′.’ So we were, like, ‘We’re not doing that.’ We look back on ‘Transit Blues’ pretty fondly. We would definitely change a number of things if we could, but there’s no point in redoing it… For this record, the goal was to write 20 songs, which is way more than we usually do — we usually write 13 songs or 12 songs and those songs make the record. So we’re putting together a bunch of ’em and then we’ll sit down and look at ’em and say, ‘What didn’t make the cut?’ So, it’ll be interesting. There will be friction, but all for the better and hopefully a better, different record than what folks have heard.”
