The Devil Wears Prada – Mike Hranica [vocals], Jeremy DePoyster [vocals, guitar], Mason Nagy [bass], Kyle Sipress [guitar], Jonathan Gering [keys, synthesizers], and Giuseppe Capolupo [drums]– will release its eighth album, “Color Decay”, on September 16 via Solid State. The official music video for the LP’s latest single, “Broken”, can be seen below.
“Writing ‘Broken’ started by drawing on a specific memory of a panic attack, but slowly evolved into something more broad,” the band explains. “The song aims to capture that feeling of desperately not wanting to talk about your problems, but at the same time, just wanting everyone to already understand.”
“Color Decay” will arrive on September 16 via Solid State. Pre-order it here.
“Color Decay” track listing:
“Color Decay” follows 2019’s “The Act”. As Revolver stated when selecting the record as one of the “50 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2022,” “THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA have proven time and time again that it’s possible to never stop sonically experimenting — with screamo, with spoken word, with atmospheric electronica, with sludge — and never lose their own crushing identity. Anticipating their next successful risk is one of the things that makes being a TDWP fan so rewarding.”
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA have been consistently delivering since forming in 2005. Fans voted 2009’s seminal “With Roots Above And Branches Below” one of the “5 Greatest Metalcore Albums” in a Revolver poll, with the magazine christening it “a true metalcore landmark.” The group has notched six consecutive Top 5 debuts on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums chart, including “Dead Throne” (2011),“8:18” (2013),“Space” EP (2015),“Transit Blues” (2016),“The Act” (2019) and “ZII” EP (2021). The latter served as a sequel to one of their most beloved projects — 2010’s “Zombie” EP. In the wake of the EP, the group exceeded a quarter of a billion cumulative streams and views. During 2021, the musicians decamped to remote hideaways together in Wisconsin and Desert Hot Springs, California. This time around, keyboardist/programmer Jonathan Gering took the reins as producer, collaborating closely to assemble a rich sonic architecture for what would become “Color Decay”.
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA will embark on a summer 2022 headline tour. The trek kicks off on August 4 in Milwaukee and runs through September 10 in Columbia, South Carolina. STRAY FROM THE PATH and DYING WISH will also appear. THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA will perform the “Zombie” EP and the “ZII” EP in full, along with a selection of greatest hits, making each show a special night for TDWP fans both new and old.
