The Devil Wears Prada has announced the details for its next album.
The band has announced that it will release its new album Transit Blues on Friday, October 7th in stores and online. The record, the band’s sixth full-length studio recording, will be released via Rise Records. It will come a little more than a year after the release of the band’s latest recording, its 2015 EP Space. That record was released August 21st, 2015.
The process of creating Transit Blues marks the first time that the band has ever lived and recorded together in order to create any of its records. Producer Dan Korneff (Pierce The Veil, Motionless in White) returned to man the boards for the eleven-song record. He also produced Space. Vocalist Mike Hranica explained the idea behind the record and its title noting that it has a lot to do with life and certain topics related therein. “It’s like zooming out on a commute,” he said. “It’s the notion of getting from one place to another. Most people go from their homes to work while we go from date to date on tour. Either way, it’s the inevitable process of growth and change. There are moments of anger, but the pervading theme is separation. Drawing the full circle, it is separation that is inherent in moving from one place to another.”
In anticipation of Transit Blues’ release the band debuted last week the video for the album’s lead single ‘Daughter’ online. The video has already received nearly 280,000 views since its debut. In discussing the concept behind the song Hranica explained that it actually rose from literature; more specifically author Simone de Beauvor’s novel The Mandarins. “It’s strange,” he said. “I will write EPs based on subjects that aren’t super close to my heart like ‘Zombie’ or ‘Space’ because it opens the door for me to make my own stories based off the topics. When we did ‘Transit Blues,’ it was only natural to incorporate fiction. ‘Daughter’ is the most forthright example.”
Transit Blues is currently scheduled to be released in stores and online on Friday, October 7th via Rise Records. More information on Transit Blues is available online now along with all of the latest news and more from The Devil Wears Prada at:
