Vocalist Mike Hranica told Heavy NYC last year that The Devil Wears Prada didn't want to repeat themselves and essentially make Transit Blues, Pt. 2 with their coming record. Now that the band is streaming their new song "Lines Of Your Hands", it's clear they absolutely didn't. The song is a pretty straightforward, punchy rock track that employs some underlying synths that make for great atmosphere leading to the explosive chorus.
Hranica elaborates more on the new single, as well as the new album The Act.
"'Lines of Your Hands' is a love song that includes a written dialogue we got our pal Sierra to sing on. She totally nailed it and it certainly enhances the song's storyline and thematic nature. Sonically, we feel that 'LOYH' 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."
"The Act is our seventh full-length and the most detailed effort of our career. The process was scrupulous in every facet. Jon, who's played keyboard with the band for the last seven or eight years, produced the album; which is a decision that's insurmountably snowballed over the past few releases. There is no common theme surrounding every song on the record, although there are notions that inhale and exhale through the LP's timeline."
"This just feels very make it, or break it for us. 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 that '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."
