The Devil Wears Prada will return this fall with a new album, The Act, and have unveiled the first single, “Lines of Your Hands”.
The band’s seventh LP, and first for Solid State Records, will arrive on October 11th. The song “Lines of Your Hands” shows the band moving away from its metalcore roots, and embracing a more minimal sound.
As frontman Mike Hranica told Alternative Press, “When I hear something like Billie Eilish, my mind goes straight to the sheer minimalism of it. I don’t see that in metal or hard rock … That’s something I’m really excited about. I’ve found myself over the last five or so years being drawn into culture and art that grabs you based on what’s not there rather than what is there.”
In a press release, Hranica stated, “Sonically, we feel that ‘Lines of Your Hands’ checks the right boxes for first single released from this album. What is upcoming really moves away from where Prada has been the last 10 years.”
Along with the album announcement, The Devil Wears Prada have announced a fall North American headlining tour, featuring support from Norma Jean and Gideon. The outing kicks off October 19th in St. Louis, Missouri, and runs through a November 16th show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
