thedevilwearspradaband2016colornew_638_767Clrvynt has premiered ‘To the Key of Evergreen,’ a new song and video from The Devil Wears Prada. The video has some really cool visual stuff in it. The song is the same metalcore stuff TDWP have always played. Check out ‘To The Key Of Evergreen’ below.

With inspiration from singer 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 to be with his true, lost love.

The video was directed by Maria Juranic who also directed Prada‘s critically acclaimed ‘First Sight’ and ‘War’ videos, as well as Doomtree‘s ‘Final Boss’. Hranica said: “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.” Continue reading »

The track, which is taken from the band’s latest album, “Dystopia”, showcases the classical-style acoustic guitar playing of the band’s Brazilian lead guitarist Kiko Loureiro. “He plays so many different instruments, too!” Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine told Revolver magazine. “I walked into Kiko‘s hotel room in Japan, and there’s a silver flute on his bed. And [David] Ellefson [Megadeth bassist] goes, ‘That was him? I thought I heard some dude shredding on the flute last night!'”

Mustaine told Music Radar earlier in the year that Loureiro‘s lead playing complements his instinctual and animalistic style in much the same way as Chris Poland and Marty Friedman did through the ’80s and ’90s.

“I think that Kiko has a lot of what Chris Poland and Marty Friedman were capable of doing,” said Mustaine, before noting that he often vocally authored Poland and Friedman‘s solos. Continue reading »
