The Devil Wears Prada Takes On Gun Violence

On December 2nd, 2015 in San Bernardino, CA, 14 people were killed and 22 seriously injuried in the biggest mass shooting since Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.

Eight days later, The Devil Wears Prada's Mike Hranica drove from his Chicago home to meet up with guitarist Kyle Sipress in Kansas City to write and demo new material for what would become the "Transit Blues" album.

Both very much affected by the escalading gun violence the world had been experiencing, "Lock & Load" began to take shape. Check out what Hranica has to say about the song below.

TDWP Explains "To The Key Of Evergreen"

Today, the second "story behind the song" video is released by The Devil Wears Prada and spotlights the track "To The Key of Evergreen." In the video, Mike Hranica talks about the elements that acted as inspiration for the lyrics:

"'To The Key of Evergreen' is a song based off of my favororite love story, a novel called 'Lolita,' by Vladimir Nabokov, specifically in the travels between the narrator and his lover. I wanted to create something along the same lines but also pairing it with my own experiences as of late..."

"To The Key of Evergreen" is from Prada's new album, "Transit Blues," released on October 7th (Rise Records). The band is currently on "The Rise Up Tour" with Memphis May Fire and Like Moths to Flames, and, on most shows, Silverstein. Remaining dates are below.

TDWP Releases New Music Video

The Devil Wears Prada's new video "To The Key of Evergreen" tells a powerful love story that transcends time and space. With inspiration from Mike Hranica's all-time favorite love story, Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita," the "To The Key of Evergreen" video follows a young man who crosses impossible barriers of dimension and time.

The video was directed by Maria Juranic - who also directed Prada's "First Sight" and "War" videos, as well as Doomtree's "Final Boss." Said Hranica: "Maria was able to distill into the video the love story's warmth and emotion that is apparent in the song's lyrics. Even her first edit blew us out of the water." More...

Report

Chicago Open Air Day One

I've never been to an open air music festival. Mostly since most music fests have only one or two artists who I like and try to jam as many different styles of music into one festival as possible to the point where they have no target audience anymore. Lollapalooza is perhaps the biggest offender in that regard to he point where it appeals to both everyone and nobody simultaneously. But thankfully Chicago finally got a metal festival of its own to compensate for a lot of the directionless festivals that the city is known for that have kept me at bay for so long.

Milwaukee Metalfest closed up around a decade ago so Chicago getting a heavy metal festival was (literally) music to my ears. The Rust Belt had nothing in the way of metal festivals and the only other big metal fests have been Rocklahoma, Maryland Deathfest, New England Metal and Hardcore Fest and 70,000 Tons of Metal. As somebody who doesn't live within driving distance from Oklahoma, Maryland, Massachusetts or Florida, I was incredibly excited for something to hit the Midwest as it was long overdue.

But the part that got me most excited was the potential for the future. Specifically a future where artists who only do festivals and mini-tours can finally hit a big outdoor stage and do so in my hometown. Think Anaal Nathrakh, Samael, Ihsahn, Pig Destroyer and Zardonic being able to not only play a real festival show in the Midwest but also be introduced to a whole new audience who would be coming for the far more mainstream headliner. At the very least, the fest could use some less obscure second stage openers and some more foreign bands who haven't come to America for years like Primordial, Vreid or Orphaned Land. But for a brand new festival, the lineup wasn't bad by any means, particularly when it came to headliners. It's a possible future outlet for all the cool stuff that I would never otherwise get to see in coming years which is what got me psyched more than anything else.

I waited in the mother of all lines upon arriving on Friday for a full 90 minutes. Everyone wanted to be in early to catch the opening band on the opening day of the inaugural festival. And the person in front of me was the evil doppelganger of a friend of mine from college. Same body. Same haircut. Same facial features. Same teeth. It was just completely uncanny, especially since one of them lives in west Iowa and the other in east Nebraska. More...

The Devil Wears Prada Announces New Album

The Devil Wears Prada today unveils the details for sixth full-length album, "Transit Blues," which will arrive October 7th via Rise Records.

This release follows last year's "Space" EP that bowed at #18 on the Billboard Top 200. The band retreated to both Watertown, WI and Sawyer, MI last winter to write "Transit Blues," for the first time living and creating in a shared, full time space.

The Devil Wears Prada re-teamed with "Space" producer Dan Korneff (Pierce The Veil, Motionless in White) in the spring of 2016 to record the 11-track "Transit Blues." Overall, the album reflects themes of transition, separation, and mourning.

"It's like zooming out on a commute," explains vocalist Mike Hranica. "It's the notion of getting from one place to another. Most people go from their homes to work while we go from date to date on tour. Either way, it's the inevitable process of growth and change. There are moments of anger, but the pervading theme is separation. Drawing the full circle, it is separation that is inherent in moving from one place to another."

A video for first single "Daughter" can be seen below, and the track nods to a passion Hranica has yet to properly write about: literature. Specifically, it takes a page from Simone de Beauvoir's novel "The Mandarins."

"It's strange," smiles Hranica. "I will write EPs based on subjects that aren't super close to my heart like 'Zombie' or 'Space' because it opens the door for me to make my own stories based off the topics. When we did 'Transit Blues,' it was only natural to incorporate fiction. 'Daughter' is the most forthright example." More...

Mike Hranica Releases New Book

Mike Hranica, vocalist/lyricist for the metalcore band The Devil Wears Prada, will see his third book released today. Entitled "Three Dots & The Guilt Machine," the book is, according to Hranica, "a five year compilation of poetry, prose, and general nonsense...a collection of writing that rarely finishes its breath. A hundred fifty-something pages of what one might consider eclectic truth fiction."

In addition to Amazon, the book will also be available on the band's upcoming "Apollo X" fall North American tour. Hranica's first book, "One & A Half Hearts," published in 2013, takes a subjective look at the story behind the lyrics from "Dead Throne," Prada's 2011 album.

The Devil Wears Prada will co-headline the "Apollo X" tour this fall with Motionless In White, with Upon a Burning Body, The Word Alive and The Color Morale providing support. Confirmed dates are below. More...

The Devil Wears Prada Details New EP

The Devil Wears Prada's first official release since 2013, the conceptual "Space" EP, will be in stores on August 21st via Rise Records. Pre-orders can be placed over here

The "Space" EP is comprised of six songs and is a wholly collaborative effort, with all band members contributing - Mike Hranica (vocals), Jeremy DePoyster (rhythm guitar, clean vocals), Andy Trick (bass), Daniel Williams (drums), and touring musicians Jonathan Gering (keyboards), and Kyle Sipress (lead guitar). The end result is a collection of thematic songs that each explores a different point of view of space and those things that exist outside of the Earth's province - the sun, the moon, aliens, asteroids, and the interstellar space explorer.

"Planet A," tells the story of an interplanetary ship's commander; "Alien" is straightforward and brutal, leaving no hope for the survival of mankind. Fear, arrogance and a near-incantation of what's really important in life are at the center of "Asteroids."

"We learned a lot from the 'Zombie' EP," said Hranica of the band's 2010 release. "We wanted each song on the 'Space' EP to have a specificity about it, to have its own identity separate from the others, to have its own sound, but still have them all united in concept. We talked about a lot of different themes, but 'space' just felt right."

Like Zombies, "space opera" doesn't run too close to the personal interests of Hranica. "Making this EP was a great experience because it allowed me to open up my imagination and creativity, not to be hindered by having too much knowledge of the subject and become overly analytical, being able to write a more fictional narrative. We really look forward to making more records like this."

The "Space" EP track listing is:

Slayer To Headline Rockstar Mayhem Fest

The Rockstar Mayhem festival enters its eighth year with another heavy metal and hard rock line-up, featuring 13 bands performing between the main stage and Victory Records stage.

The main stage will feature Slayer as headliner, as well as additional performances from King Diamond, Hellyeah, and The Devil Wears Prada. The Victory Records Stage will feature headliner Whitechapel as well as Thy Art Is Murder, Jungle Rot, Sister Sin, Sworn In, Shattered Sun, Feed Her To The Sharks, Code Orange and Kissing Candice.

Slayer's Kerry King comments: "I don't know if third time will be a charm, but it will definitely be hellish! Slayer and King Diamond on stage for the first time together in the States- NEVER has Mayhem been more evil. DON'T FUCKIN' MISS IT."

King Diamond adds: "This is going to be one hot and hellish summer! Slayer and King Diamond on the same stage - it does not get more devilish than this! We will be putting on a one hour set with the full King Diamond stage production. As for a set list, I'm not gonna reveal that here, but it will be built around 'Dreams of Horror.' The Puppet Master will be there with Grandma, and we will even go as far back in time as to 1777 (hint). You're all in for one hell of a show if you come to this Sabbath!" More...
