The Devil Wears Prada have premiered ‘Nightfall’, the opening track from their “ZII” EP. That outing is the follow-up to their 2010 release, “Zombie” and is headed for a May 21st release date. You can hear it live much sooner however, as this Saturday, May 15th, will see the group perform “ZII” in full with tickets available through ziiundeadstream.com.

Vocalist Mike Hranica commented:

“Sonically, I think ‘Nightfall‘ is a celebration of what the band did for a long while. I remember that it’s the first song I completed vocally and I know that it’s straightforward — very much straightforward. Lyrically, an atmosphere is created concerning the attack rather than the anatomic details of the undead themselves. It’s a thumper with no introduction to kick off the EP.”

The Devil Wears Prada will release a new EP, “ZII”, on May 21 via Solid State Records. The track ‘Termination‘, taken from the effort, can be streamed below.

“I learned during the Covid-19 pandemic to imagine how a virus can seriously compromise our lives,” says vocalist Mike Hranica. “‘Termination’ makes mention of that and the greed that so often comes when humans fend only for themselves or when lying to protect reputation. I didn’t want to remake any part of the lyrical imaginings of the first EP, and the transformation mentioned in ‘Termination’ is a part of the new territory I hoped to create for ‘ZII’.”

The original “Zombie” EP dropped all the way back in August 2010 and remains an intense fan favorite. While not a chronological release in the The Devil Wears Prada catalog, “ZII” is the next chapter.

The Devil Wears Prada will release a new EP, “ZII”, on May 21 via Solid State Records.

The original “Zombie” EP dropped all the way back in August 2010 and remains an intense fan favorite. While not a chronological release in the The Devil Wears Prada catalog, “ZII” is the next chapter.

“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,” The Devil Wears Prada said, offering insight into this EP in relation to their catalog. “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.”

The band 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.”
