MUSIC NEWS: The Devil Wears Prada Announce New EP ‘ZII’ & Livestream Show
The Devil Wears Prada have announced their new EP ZII, set for release on 21st May 2021 via Solid State Records. To showcase the new release, the band will be performing a livestream event on 15th May 2021, where they will perform the entire EP in full.
ZII is the sequel to The Devil Wears Prada‘s 2010 Zombie EP: “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,” says the band.
They add: “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. Before, there were five songs about how to fend off the apocalypse. Now there are five songs of hopelessness against the hoard.”
