Fresh off the main stage from this summer’s Mayhem Festival in the USA, The Devil Wears Prada is giving fans another sneak peek of its forthcoming concept EP “Space,” due out August 21st through Rise Records. Today, the band is making the track “Alien” available on its YouTube channel and as an instant-grat download on iTunes with a pre-order of the EP here: http://tdwp.merchnow.com
Musically relentless and lyrically terrifying, “Alien” tells the tale of an encounter with extra-terrestrial monsters:
Each ten feet tall without remorse
Crawling along the walls
I see the eyes, I see the teeth, see the monster coming through the window
Game over, we’re done for
The thematic six-song “Space” EP weaves together a cinematic intergalactic soundscape bolstered by vivid dialogue samples, ethereal textures, thick guitars and entrancingly brutal vocals. “Space” is TDWP’s second EP, the first, 2010’s critically-acclaimed “Zombies,” was a Top 10 Billboard hit.
On the just-wrapped Mayhem shows, Prada’s live sets consistently hit home runs, earning reviews like Fuse’s “...the ferocity of a 13-minute punk set and the endurance of an hourlong metal gig…the best of both worlds…” and “[TDWP] opened the Main Stage with a siege of chugging, drop-D riffage, seismic breakdowns and brawny polyrhythms” from Metal Hammer.
TDWP – Mike Hranica (lead vocals, guitar), Jeremy Depoystner (clean vocals, guitars), Andy Trick (bass), and drummer Daniel Williams – has graced the covers of Alternative Press, Revolver, AMP, HM, and Outburn, and continues to be at the forefront of a movement that bridges the gap between Mayhem and the Van’s Warped Tour. The Devil Wears Prada will play RiotFest & Carnival in their hometown of Chicago on Saturday, September 12.
