The Devil Wears Prada Announces Zombies EP

July 6, 2010 | Posted by Mitch Michaels

The Devil Wears Prada are set to release their first-ever EP, the conceptual Zombies EP, on August 24th.

“The whole thing is just completely based upon zombies,” explained TDWP’s front man Mike Hranica. “Last fall, I was on a real zombie kick, I read ‘The Zombie Survival Guide’ by Max Brooks, and I thought, ‘what if we made a zombie song?’ All it took was me just saying that to the band, and we had our hearts set on doing this EP.”

Songs include “Survivor”, “Outnumbered,” “Escape,” “Revive,” and “Anatomy.”

“The sound is definitely The Devil Wears Prada, but so much more,” Hranica continues. “It’s sinister and bad-ass.” Guitarist/vocalist Jeremy DePoyster agrees. “It’s going to be sick,” said DePoyster. “It’s us, but it’s more Hatebreed-influenced and just straight-up thrash metal-influenced with some serious Slayer riffs.”

TDWP is currently in the middlie of the “Back To The Roots” tour, which runs through Labor Day.

“We wanted to go back to our roots,” said Hranica, “play little hole-in-the-wall places where fans can be right there in front of the stage, where we can hand someone a mic and really have the fans be an active part of the show, not behind a barrier ten feet away.”
