The Devil Wears Prada have always been a band in constant flux; challenging themselves from album to album and, even without a shred of information to support our claims, we’re 100% convinced their upcoming EP, ZII will be no different. This EP sees the eventually follow-up to 2010’s Zombie – a fan favourite – and to see in this next chapter, the band will also livestream an exclusive event.
“There’s no question that the Zombie EP is a fan favourite 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 Z1 while honing in on the characteristics that we enjoy about heavy music today and the directions we want to see it heading.”
They continue, “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 Z2. 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 and now we’re stepping on the gas and not letting up.”
The band finishes, “Before, there were five songs about how to fend off the apocalypse. Now there are five songs of hopelessness against the hoard.”
Stay tuned for more details surrounding the stream and check out the trailer for the ZII EP in the meantime!
