The Devil Wears Prada—Mike Hranica [vocals], Jeremy DePoyster [vocals, guitar], Mason Nagy [bass], Kyle Sipress [guitar], Jonathan Gering [keys, synthesizers], and Giuseppe Capolupo [drums]—will release the much-anticipated ZII EP on May 21 via Solid State Records. It’s a discordant, dissonant exercise in excellence. Pre-order the ZII EP here.
The band has just shared the new track “Termination.”
“I learned during the COVID-19 pandemic to imagine how a virus can seriously compromise our lives,” says 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 Devil Wears Prada have also planned a livestream event for Saturday, May 15, during which they will play the entire ZII EP in full. Fans can purchase tickets along with the pre-order of the EP.
