With less than a month to go until they release their long-awaited follow-up to 2016′s Transit Blues, metalcore veterans The Devil Wears Prada have just shared their second new single from their forthcoming album The Act.
Slowing things down compared to their lead single “Lines Of Your Hands,” The Devil Wears Prada’s latest “Please Say No” is a melodic track inspired by author Nelson Algren.
Explaining the concept behind their new track, vocalist Mike Hranica said, “‘Please Say No’ is based off of a scene within the novel Never Come Morning by Nelson Algren. This song is more difficult to explain than any other set of lyrics I’ve assembled. Saying the song is derivative of class injustice is insufficient and saying the song is born of a violent crime is cheap. Lyrically, I’d urge interested listeners to read the book. Musically, I’ll encourage listeners to enjoy what I consider to be our moodiest effort on The Act.”
