TDWP_Promo_2012_WEBAnna Dave Bertram of Sweden’s Access: Rock conducted an interview with Dayton, Ohio metalcore band The Devil Wears Prada after the group’s July 4 performance at the Metaltown festival in Gothenburg, Sweden. You can now watch the chat below.

The Devil Wears Prada will release its new album on September 17 via Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded with producer/engineer Matt GoldmanKillswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, who handled production duties on The Devil Wears Prada‘s “Dead Throne” CD, will serve as executive producer on the upcoming effort.

Back in January, The Devil Wears Prada frontman Mike Hranica told Loudwire about the songwriting process for the new album: “For me, I definitely feel a little bit of a carry-over from ‘Dead Throne’, particularly because it was a very cool record for me learning, for me learning to write better and that was working with a new [producer] … working with Adam for the first time and having [A Day To Remember’s] Jeremy McKinnon working on some of the songs with us, and I feel I took a lot from that. On ‘Dead Throne’, there were better vocal parts and everything was more cohesive and understandable and made for better song structure and everything and that had had a big impact on me creatively and so it’s definitely carried over into this.”

He added: “Conceptually, the concepts of ‘Dead Throne’ didn’t carry over. I feel like that would be repetitive and monotonous to keep going at the same subject matter, but obviously, it all comes from the same place and I can say that nothing got more happy or uplifting, really. So I think it’s very muchThe Devil Wears Prada, but also it’s got a bit of freshness and originality to it and I think that even musically we started approaching the songs differently. Like, this song could be more like this and working off of a base we never really worked off of before.”

Dead Throne has been releaased on September 13th 2011 via Ferret Records. The album sold 32,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. To read our review click here.
