Just a few days ago The Devil Wears Prada announced an absolutely STACKED US tour with Memphis May Fire, Silverstein, and Like Moths to Flames. As if that wasn’t enough, we’re now being told their new album, Transit Blues, is set to release on October 7th via Rise Records.
Transit Blues also marks the first time the band has lived and created music in a shared space. They teamed up with producer Dan Korneff (My Chemical Romance, A Day To Remember, The Word Alive) to create the album, which has been said to reflect themes of transition, separation, and mourning.
Commenting on the album frontman Mike Hranica had the following to say.
It’s like zooming out on a commute. 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.
On top of the album announcement…and the tour, we have yet another update from the band. Last week, The Devil Wears Prada let us have a taste of the Transit Blues with the release of the first single, “Daughter” and now we have the music video. I have to be honest, it’s a more than refreshing progression on their discography. It’s unrelentingly heavy and melodic. Hranica recently said that the track “Daughter” is based on Simone de Beauvoir’s novel “The Mandarins”.
