The Devil Wears Prada have announced their eighth album “Color Decay”. It will arrive on September 16th, 2022, via Solid State Records.
Today, the band has shared the video for the new single “Salt”, which is described by the band as follow: “‘Salt’ is a song about trying to move forward and then feeling like nothing ever changes, even when you’ve seemingly done everything right. It’s the sort of feeling that makes you question every move you’ve ever made. Initially, the lyrics were just about having trouble writing songs for our new record, but soon, we realized that this feeling of fighting only to be stagnant and held down applies to so much more in our lives. It was really a breakthrough track and allowed us to dive in even deeper into what became ‘Color Decay’”.
“Color Decay” follows 2019’s “The Act”. As Revolver stated when selecting the record as one of the 50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2022: “The Devil Wears Prada have proven time and time again that it’s possible to never stop sonically experimenting — with screamo, with spoken word, with atmospheric electronica, with sludge — and never lose their own crushing identity. Anticipating their next successful risk is one of the things that makes being a TDWP fan so rewarding”.
The Devil Wears Pradahave been consistently delivering since forming in 2005. Fans voted 2009’s seminal “With Roots Above and Branches Below” one of the 5 Greatest Metalcore Albums in a Revolver poll, with the magazine christening it “a true metalcore landmark”. The group has notched six consecutive Top 5 debuts on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, including “Dead Throne” , “8:18” , “Space” EP , “Transit Blues” , “The Act” , and “ZII” EP . The latter served as a sequel to one of their most beloved projects — 2010’s “Zombie” EP.
In the wake of the EP, the group exceeded a-quarter-of-a-billion cumulative streams and views. During 2021, the musicians decamped to remote hideaways together in Wisconsin and Desert Hot Springs, California. This time around, Jon took the reins as producer, collaborating closely to assemble a rich sonic architecture for what would become “Color Decay”.
