Dayton, Ohio Christian metalcore band THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA has set "Dead Throne" as the title of its new album, due in the U.S. on September 13 via Ferret Music and one day earlier internationally through Roadrunner Records. The follow-up to 2009's critically acclaimed "With Roots Above and Branches Below" was recorded at Zing Studios in Massachusetts with producer Adam Dutkiewicz (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, TIMES OF GRACE). Additional synth/key production was handled by Joey Sturgis (who has worked on all of the THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA records so far) with further assistance on the vocal production by Jeremy McKinnon (A DAY TO REMEMBER).
A new webisode featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the "Dead Throne" recording process can be viewed below. Also available is a stream of the new THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA song entitled "Born to Lose" (courtesy of AltPress.com).
Commented THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA vocalist Mike Hranica: "The new record contains the heavy aspects of the 'Zombie' EP meshed with the melody of the full-lengths. 'Born to Lose' captures some of those elements and serves as a comprehensive preview to the album. By all means, I'd call it our most emotional, well-written album to date."
"Born to Lose" audio stream:
The band will head out on the road this summer on the Vans Warped Tour, performing on the festival's Teggart Main Stage.
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA's most recent release, last summer's five-track conceptual "Zombie" EP, sold around 25,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart.
