The Devil Wears Prada is back 11 full years later with a follow-up to their 2010 Zombie EP. The new one is titled ZII out on May 2, with a full performance of the release happening via livestream on May 15. The band is now streaming a new single called "Termination", which vocalist Mike Hranica compares lyrically to what we all experienced during COVID-19.
"I learned during the COVID-19 pandemic to imagine how a virus can seriously compromise our lives," says Hranica. "'Termination' makes mention of that and the greed that so often comes when humans fend only for themselves or when lying to protect reputation. I didn't want to remake any part of the lyrical imaginings of the first EP, and the transformation mentioned in 'Termination' is a part of the new territory I hoped to create for ZII."
