Thrash Hits conducted an interview with the Dayton, Ohio Christian metalcore band THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA at this year’s edition of the Download festival, which was held June 10-12, 2011 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA will release its as-yet-untitled new album on September 13 via Ferret Music. The band’s first full-length CD since 2009’s critically acclaimed “With Roots Above and Branches Below” was recorded at Zing Studios in Massachusetts with producer Adam Dutkiewicz (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, TIMES OF GRACE). Additional synth/key production was handled by Joey Sturgis (who has worked on all of the THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA records so far) with further assistance on the vocal production by Jeremy McKinnon (A DAY TO REMEMBER).
Commented THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA vocalist Mike Hranica: “The new record contains the heavy aspects of the ‘Zombie’ EP meshed with the melody of the full-lengths. ‘Born to Lose’ captures some of those elements and serves as a comprehensive preview to the album. By all means, I’d call it our most emotional, well-written album to date.”
The band will head out on the road this summer on the Vans Warped Tour, performing on the festival’s Teggart Main Stage.
