Great news Devil Wears Prada fans! After 11 long years, the metalcore stalwarts are finally unleashing a second installment of their beloved Zombie EP.
Due out May 21 via Solid State Records, the Ohio outfit will be unleashing a new five-track effort entitled ZII.
Commenting on the highly anticipated release, which will also be accompanied with a livestream event May 15th, the band shares, “There’s no question that the Zombie EP is a fan favorite 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 ZI while honing in on the characteristics that we enjoy about heavy music today and the directions we want to see it heading.”
They continued, “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 ZII. 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. Now we’re stepping on the gas and not letting up.”
“Before,” the band finishes, “there were five songs about how to fend off the apocalypse. Now, there are five songs of hopelessness against the hoard.”
