Following recent teasing and speculation, The Devil Wears Prada have now confirmed details of a sequel follow-up to their 2010 ‘Zombie’ EP.
Aptly titled ‘Zombie II’ (or simply ‘ZII’) and set for release on May 21st 2021 via Solid State Records, the EP will also mark the band’s first release to feature newly recruited bassist Mason Nagy as a full-time member.
Here’s what the band had to say about revisiting the zombie concept, and where they’re taking it this time around.
“There’s no question that the ‘Zombie’ EP is a fan favourite and a record that really set the pace for us as a heavier band. A goal we had for this EP was to pay tribute to ‘Z1’ while honing in on the characteristics that we enjoy about heavy music today and the directions we want to see it heading.
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 ‘Z2’. 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 and now we’re stepping on the gas and not letting up.”
