Mike Hranica [vocals], Jeremy DePoyster [vocals, guitar], Mason Nagy [bass], Kyle Sipress [guitar], Jonathan Gering [keys, synthesizers], and Giuseppe Capolupo [drums] — have shared the video for the brand new, self-produced song “Sacrifice”. The song is available for stream or download via Solid State Records HERE.
“‘Sacrifice’ is a song of defeat: its character is exhausted, relinquishing will in an abusive relationship. There is nothing left to fight for”, the band shares. “Sacrifice” is an excellent example of TDWP‘s continued sonic evolution, mixing an almost restrained melodic nuance with full on brutality.
Earlier this year, The Devil Wears Prada released the much-anticipated “ZII” EP via Solid State Records. It was a discordant, dissonant exercise in excellence. Get the “ZII” EP HERE. The original “Zombie” EP dropped all the way back in August 2010 and remains an intense fan favorite. While not a chronological release in the TDWP catalog, “ZII” is the next chapter. TDWP effectively summed things up, saying: “Before, there were five songs about how to fend off the apocalypse. Now, there are five songs of hopelessness against the hoard”.
The Devil Wears Prada have positioned themselves for meaningful reinvention. Following their 2005 emergence, they served up 2009’s seminal “With Roots Above and Branches Below“. In its wake, the group achieved two back-to-back Top 10 entries on the Billboard Top 200 with the “Zombie” EP , and “Dead Throne” . The group kept up a prolific pace on ‘8:18′ , “Space” EP , and “Transit Blues”  and “The Act” . This output of new music garnered widespread acclaim from top tier media outlets. In addition to selling out countless headline shows, the musicians toured with everyone from Slipknot to Slayer. Not to mention, their total stream tally impressively nearing 200 million in 2020.
