In a new feature here, we recap the biggest stories of the week here at Ghost Cult! We went to 12, because fuck it, it’s our list! This week we have new reviews from The Mars Volta, Behemoth, and The Devil Wears Prada, an interview with Mike of TDWP, new album news from In flames, concert reviews from Ghost and Oceano, Part 2 of our Bloodstock Festival 2022 coverage, the new plans for The Black Dahlia Murder, Allegeaon welcomes back a vocalist, a potential farewell show from an influential band, and the tragic loss of a member of the metal family.
Over the past sixteen years since their debut, Dear Love, The Devil Wears Prada has been one of the most consistent bands in metalcore releasing seven albums over the past decade and a half. It’s not unfounded to say the band has become one of the leading stalwarts of the subgenre. Color Decay (Solid State) is the band’s eighth album, and from the opening singles released earlier in the year, it was already clear that the band is continuing on their killer album streak.
We talked to Mike Hranica of The Devil Wears Prada on the eve of the release of their new album “Color Decay” (Solid State Records). We chatted with Mike all about the new album, the band’s writing process, new elements in their songcraft, lyrical inspiration, and more!
Catch up on what you missed this week in the world of Rock and Metal news with our show!
Easter Sunday 2022, Silverstein and Beartooth took over Nashville’s premier line dancing bar. Yeah, you read that right. Snuggled in the heart of downtown Nashville, Wildhorse Saloon, which typically serves cowboys and country singers, opened their doors to metalcore. Albeit, they may have opened those doors a little too late. The majority of the line wasn’t even in the venue when ERRA took the stage. However, that’s the only negative I could give the venue. In my six years working in Nashville, this is the cleanest venue with the clearest sound and kindest staff I’ve ever experienced.
After twenty-two years of being one of the most renowned and influential bands in post-hardcore and emo, it would be respectable to take a hiatus and bask in the legacy for a good while. However, Silverstein continues to knock out new material consistently, never wringing dry of inspiration and reinforcing their veteran status. With new album Misery Made Me (UNFD), the hardcore maestros let their creativity flow freely without forcing anything to appease anyone’s expectations – including their own.
Rewinding back to August 2010, Metalcore savants The Devil Wears Prada put out the Zombie EP (Ferret Music) – a release that introduced a new level of maturity and heaviness for the band and remains a fan favorite to this day. Fast forward to the present day, TDWP have written ZII (Solid State Records), a sequel EP no one knew was coming. While its precursor is about fighting the apocalypse, ZII embodies the stemming feelings of exhaustion and hopelessness.
The Devil Wears Prada has shared a sick new track “Nightfall” from their much-anticipated ZII EP set for release on 21st May 2021 via Solid State Records. The band has also planned a livestream event for Saturday, 15th May, during which they will play the entire ZII EP in full. Fans can purchase tickets for the event and pre-order at the link below.
