The Devil Wears Prada have released details for their sixth full-length album ‘Transit Blues‘, out October 7th on Rise Records.
The album is available to pre-order now on iTunes [Here], and follows last year’s ‘Space‘ EP.
Upholding a career-long tradition of progression and perseverance, ‘Transit Blues‘ represents another natural evolution. The band retreated to both Watertown, WI and Sawyer, MI last year to write the album, for the first time living in a shared, full-time space. They reteamed with ‘Space‘ producer Dan Korneff (Pierce The Veil, Motionless In White) in early 2016 to record the 11 track album, which reflects overall themes of transition, separation and mourning.
“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.“
The Devil Wears Prada recently unleashed first single ‘Daughter‘. The track nods to a passion vocalist Mike Hranica has yet to properly write about.
“It’s strange, 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.“
