Nashville, TN (October 30, 2019)
Christian hard core band, The Devil Wears Prada, consistently chooses to both challenge themselves and the world around them. The group—Mike Hranica [vocals], Jeremy DePoyster [vocals, guitar], Andy Trick [bass], Kyle Sipress [guitar], Jonathan Gering [keys, synthesizers], and Giuseppe Capolupo [drums]—bends and breaks all boundaries on their seventh full-length and debut for Solid State Records, The Act. Pulling plain-spoken poetry through distorted discord and dissonance, the six-piece deliver a dynamic and definitive statement.
“This just feels very ‘make it, or break it’ for us,” exclaims Mike. “All bets are in on The Act. We tried to make something outside of the norm for rock, metalcore, or heavy music. We often hear commentary rock is dead now; I don’t think it has to be that way though. Look at the corners pop and hip-hop turn. Artists just need to reinvent themselves and make something creative and inventive again. Reinvention is what we’re driving towards.”
“Hopefully, The Act is something that sticks around. We put everything we could into it. We want to live with it for a while and see where it goes. I know the effort and soul we put into creating the LP, the sheer passion, and how we broke our backs here—and I’m proud of that. The fire is still lit. I never take it for granted that I get to stand on a stage and yell about my feelings for strangers. We’ve been doing this fourteen years, and we’re still driven.” —Mike Hranica
