THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR “CHEMICAL” 

NEW ALBUM THE ACT OUT NOW VIA SOLID STATE RECORDS

BAND TOURING WITH STRAY FROM THE PATH, GIDEON AND LOATHE DEC 2019

Following its premiere with Revolver, The Devil Wears Prada share the new video for ‘Chemical’ taken from their new album The Act  on Solid State Records.

“I’m not one to get particularly excited about music videos these days, but I think that the technology [director] Kevin Johnson and the crew were able to employ for ‘Chemical’ makes it something special,” said singer Mike Hranica.

“‘Chemical’ is about coming to terms with the idea that all of our feelings — good and bad — are just chemical reactions in our brains. It is both a bleak and hopeful way to view the world, but at times it can help us to move forward,” said keyboardist Jonathan Gering, who co-wrote the song.

Hranica recently chatted with Forbes about the band’s evolution and more. Read it here.

Listen here. TDWP also shared the song ‘Lines of Your Hands’ over at Alternative Press, who conducted an exclusive chat with TDWP about the new album. Read and listen here.

The Devil Wears Prada consistently choose to both challenges themselves and the world around them. The group—Mike Hranica [vocals], Jeremy DePoyster [vocals, guitar], Andy Trick [bass], Kyle Sipress [guitar], Jonathan Gering [keys, synthesizers], and Giuseppe Capolupo [drums]—bend and break all boundaries on their seventh full-length and debut for Solid State Records, The Act. Pulling plain-spoken poetry through distorted discord and dissonance, the six-piece delivers a dynamic and definitive statement. Hranica says, “The Act is our seventh full-length and the most detailed effort of our career. The process was scrupulous in every facet. Jon, who’s played keyboard with the band for the last seven or eight years, produced the album; which is a decision that’s insurmountably snowballed over the past few releases. There is no common theme surrounding every song on the record, although there are notions that inhale and exhale through the LP’s timeline.”

“This just feels very make it, or break it for us,” says Hranica. “All bets are in on The Act. We tried to make something outside of the norm for rock, metalcore, or heavy music. We often hear commentary that ‘rock is dead’ now; I don’t think it has to be that way though. Look at the corners pop and hip-hop turn. Artists just need to reinvent themselves and make something creative and inventive again. Reinvention is what we’re driving towards.”

Be sure to catch the band this December supporting Stray From The Path W/ Gideon and Loathe this December.
